Josh Smith has been playing music since the early age of 5. He got such an early start because of his older brothers Matt and Jesse who were also heavily involved in music at such a young age. Josh began playing drums following the footsteps of his older brother Jesse, but in Middle and High School also developed a love for concert percussion and mallet instruments. Josh also developed a passion for composing during High School and attended Purchase college in 2008-2009 for composition. He then attended the City College of New York to further his musical education from 2009 to 2011. His influences include Snarky Puppy, Jaga Jazzist, Screaming Headless Torsos, Frank Zappa, Bill Bruford, Jaco Pastorius, Phish, Buddy Rich, Chick Corea, Stevie Wonder, Tower of Power, Steely Dan, Ben Folds Five, and the Mars Volta...etc. The road doesn't stop here, Josh is always looking for new outlets to display his musicianship and to extend to other musicians to collaborate, help and learn. So have a listen and enjoy!
