Joshua Hyslop is a modern folk musician, an amalgam of influence in the classically romantic tradition of Damien Rice, Ryan Adams, Iron and Wine, and Sufjan Stevens. Like the said ballyhooed folksters before him, Joshua is inspired to write largely as a result of the people and relationships surrounding him, while also subjecting his songs to his own vulnerabilities, doubts, and conflicts. He integrates these revelations with his agenda of lyrical candidness, creating an expressive and open artform.
With all of Joshua’s ability and potential, what really sets him apart is his faultless ability in the live venue. Josh will silence the crowd with his soft, and consistently pitch perfect vocal control while unintentionally making you fall in love with him for being a ‘good guy’. Considering the idiosyncratic confluence of ability he boasts, it is fair to say that Joshua spins a web of charm that makes him inimitably great.
