Touring keyboardist for Banks, Delacey, Full Crate, Corey Harper, Grace Kelly. My own artist projects (JJ, azula, Treman) have over a million monthly listeners on Spotify, and I've collaborated on songs by Lizzy McAlpine, BAYNK, Gigamesh, Carmody, Raelee Nikole & many more. Available for keys, bass, production and orchestration.
I always strive to bring elements from my classical & jazz background into the modern world with the most cutting-edge production techniques. I love creating grooves and making a track really feel good and describe the emotion sonically. I work often with analog synths, keyboards, and guitars, in addition to the virtual instrument world and creative processing. Cinematic foley samples and live percussion often find their way into my work as well, creating a uniquely warm sound through the combination of acoustic and electronic layers.
Some of my recent session work credits: Phantogram, Lizzy McAlpine, India Carney, Sofia Carson, Tim Atlas, BAYNK, and Disney (piano for a TV special). I collaborate often as a keys player, producer, and composer. Looking forward to hearing about your project!
What I offer on SoundBetter:
1. Piano and keys tracking (live grand piano, Wurlitzer, synths, Moog bass, P Bass, etc)
2. Production tune-up: I'll work with your existing song and provide new keyboard, bass, percussion layers, arrangement and mix edits to make it groove and flow!
3. Orchestration for string quartet and larger ensembles, for live and recording projects
Once I receive your track or project, I'll send a first draft back to you and we can discuss any edits/adjustments you'd like me to make.

Josh is excellent to work with! He's an amazing artist with a keen ear for details and shaping the sound to exactly what is right for the song. I had one of the smoothest working experiences with him!
Josh does it again. Beautiful live piano recordings, fast turnaround, easy communication.
Josh is a great collaborator. He’s an extremely talented keys player and producer, and he’s also a really clear and professional communicator. He has great taste, and was right on the mark with the several influences I mentioned for sound. I’d highly recommend working with him if you can!
Josh is an incredible producer and keys player. I really appreciated how he was able to add so many tasteful, unique elements to my song and completely transform it from something really sparse to something I loved listening to. The communication was also super easy and the turnaround was fast. Will definitely reach out to him for future projects!
Amazing job and very quick!
Cannot recommend Josh highly enough!! Amazing work - awesome to work with!!
Josh looked at my song really seriously and put a lot of his heart into it. Guys, be aware, he is a real talent not like some other "producers" here who will say that they can help you when they don't even know that style of music. I love what Josh does and how he thinks. After 2 revisions we came up with the same view for the song. Totally recommended.
Josh is extremely talented and very easy to work with. I'm pretty biased because I also consider him a friend, but I'm guessing everyone who works with him feels the same. He's top notch person and a very gifted musician on multiple levels.
Josh is an incredibly talented musician, producer, and singer/songwriter! He is efficient, creative, and has grooves for days. Super fun to work with and collaborate with, and I highly recommend contacting him for any of your musical needs!
I worked with Josh on one of my recent singles and some collabs and I can honestly say he's one of my favorite musicians and collaborators. He's able to communicate with me on an emotional and musical level. He's extremely patient and innovative.
Josh has an incredible ear and the technical ability to back it up! Very efficient and really fun to work/create with. Highly Recommend!
