JOSH SCHICKER is a singer-songwriter who has been working hard to become one of independent music’s most promising artists. After years of fronting rock bands, this soulful singer has found his true voice as a solo artist with roots in folk and pop styles. Schicker’s music is both soothing and earnest as his strong vocals soar above melodic and unpredictable chord progressions.
Schicker has 6 solo recordings to his credit, the most recent being “Faith, the Poor & Politics”, released in 2012. A popular blogger interviewed Schicker after its release, “There are really two themes I gravitate toward as a writer: reconciliation and telling the truth. As I observe the world it occurs to me that these two subjects are at the heart of many of humanity’s conflicts as well as many victories.
In the song, “Small Change”, I try to reconcile the fact that there are millions of people who do not have access to clean water while I have unlimited access to it…”. Lyrical depth matched with musical warmth and a bit of whimsy, Schicker’s music is acoustic pop at its best.
