Joshua Burnside was born in Ireland, but cites the music of Colombia, Eastern Europe and North America as the greatest influences on his unique sound. Deftly blending folk textures and melodies with elements of electronica, he has made it difficult for pundits to put him in a box. Now only a month on from releasing his debut record ‘EPHRATA’, he has racked up over 2 million plays on Spotify and 80,000 views on Youtube with the album being heralded a triumph by critics.
Stumbling beats, found sounds, vocoders, Cumbian rhythms, electric guitar loops, devils, lightning and dark matter are just a handful of the various flavours to expect.
