Joshua Howard
Joshua Howard
For Philadelphia born singer-songwriter Joshua Howard, making music is about much more than the number of people listening to his music. Joshua’s music thrives on raw content, reflective of the thoughtfulness and unapologetic honesty of a musician searching for purpose in the process of creating rather than self promotion.

Joshua has been surrounded by music his whole life. He grew up to the sounds of his father playing James Taylor, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, among many others, consequently stirring up a deep love for storytelling in his song writing. Being inspired by so many different styles of music, it took some time for Joshua to set into his own style of blending his soulful style voice with his own singer songwriter sound.

Joshua is releasing his debut EP entitled “Forgive my False,” this March. It is a six-track project that has been in the works for 3 years. “When I began putting this album together, I thought it was about asking forgiveness for my wrongs and the hurt I’ve caused so many people in my life. But what it also became was an opportunity to forgive myself. It’s a record about self acceptance and realizing life has made me who I am and that I can go forward and be better in the future.”

The first single to drop from the album is a song entitled Lost Boy. Joshua started writing this song while spending some time out in L.A. where he was a contestant on Team Adam on NBC’s hit TV series The Voice. Creating the rest of the album has been a long process of digging through emotions to discover the root of his music. “My music is my voice. I feel like I’ve always tried to find my purpose in someone else’s story. Now I’m beginning to really search and learn about myself through my faith and my music.”

Joshua’s desire for his music is that you as the listener would connect with it in whatever way is relevant to your story. The hope is for you to find reassurance in the chaos that you are capable of great things and not letting anyone tell you otherwise. This is the story Joshua is living.
