Josh Del on SoundBetter

I'm all about creating catchy melodies with strong lyrics. I am signed to Wixen Music Publishing alongside great artists like The Black Keys, Weezer and Neil Young.

Josh Del was born in a small desert town on the outskirts of Palm Springs, CA. He began learning music and writing songs in the third grade. Due to the desert temperatures being so hot in the summer, Josh spent that time indoors, refining his craft. It is there he developed his genre-bending sound that is a blend between Americana, Roots Rock and Blues. In 2021 he signed a deal with Wixen Music Publishing, a company that represents the catalogs of Tom Petty, The Black Keys and Weezer. In 2020 he released a song titled Friend, which featured US Gold Medal Olympian, Laurie Hernandez; the song went on to reach #27 on the iTunes charts. Josh has created original music for documentary films such as When The Lights Went Down, starring the late Wilford Brimley. As an early adopter of live-streaming music, Josh Del has found a home for his live shows on Reddit’s Public Access Network, with streams often hitting over 100k in total viewership.

    Josh did such a great job with our song. His voice was perfect. I would def use him again! He should easily be charging twice what his rate is.

    Josh is a great vocalist and did a fantastic job on a fairly challenging American folk song! He was also very easy to work with. I'd love to work with him on future projects and would highly recommend him to those in search of someone who can provide a standout vocal track!

    Josh, you did a great job! I really didn't know what to expect until the end. After the results, I would highly recommend you to anyone interested in structuring a song with complementary music.
    Very professional, and surprisingly to me, the high quality of work given such a fast turnaround.
    Thanks Josh, I hope to do this again sometime.

    I could not have asked for a better artist to work, nor did I ever expect that the small idea that I had would be realized through a song of such depth and quality – structurally, lyrically, and melodically.

    I wholeheartedly recommend his guidance to anyone who is either experienced and needs a helping hand, or someone who simply has a fragment of an idea in mind. I have no doubt you will receive the same level of dedication and attentiveness that I did and a song that you will proud of.

    Josh is both incredibly talented, but also professional and great to work with. He threw himself into our project with passion and excitement. And delivered a fantastic original song for our documentary film. Who would not want this combination of talent, passion, professionalism and humor. I would work with Josh anytime on any project. The guy is just a joy to work with and trust with a project!!

Interview with Josh Del

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: I am a creator, from making melodies to toplining on a song to tracking guitar. I love it all. My favorite thing is to try and get into the artist and listeners head and try to create that musical connection between them.

  3. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  4. A: I love the work of everyone from Rick Rubin to Dr. Dre to Dave Cobb. There are so many great producers out there! I really appreciate what producers do because they think about the whole picture when producing a song. Some of my favorite musicians are The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean and so many more.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I run an UAD Apollo Twin Quad with an SM7B or a Telefunk condenser. Guitars are Gretsch Silver Falcon, MIJ Strat, Martin HD28 and Martin OMPCA4.

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: I like to talk to the artist first, kind of get inside their head in a way, so I can help bring their song(s) to life. I listen to the track a few times through to really try to hear the message they're trying to convey.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: I am an improver, so I usually look for parts that I think could be stronger, in order to take that song to the next level and catch more attention.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: I live in the land of melody. I believe a strong melody can make everything so much better and even go beyond the lyrical content itself; but when you have a strong melody and lyrics, you got yourself a hit. That's what I do.
