I came across this cover of Pinback’s “Proceed to Memory” and knew immediately that I wanted to share it with you guys. Joshua Worden is a solo artist whose music consists of a blend of R&B, Jazz, and Indie Pop. Inspired by artists like Frank Ocean, Jeff Buckley, and James Blake, Joshua has found a way to blend electronic production into a sound so soothing and pure. This multi-talented artist has crafted himself into a one man band, perfecting the technique of multiple instruments to create music and lyrics that resonate with anyone listening.
I love music and genuinely believe that it is my path. I feel that music, more than any other pursuit, is the way that I can give back to the world.
Joshua’s cover of “Proceed to Memory” stuck out to me the most. His voice is so soulful and incredibly pure that I didn’t even notice when I hit play a second time, almost as if it were automatic.
In addition to covers, this talented singer/songwriter writes, produces, and arranges all of his own original material. Joshua released his debut EP, “The Withered Tree” in 2012 and already begun work on his debut album. His full length album entitled “Always This” was released June 1st of this year and is now available for streaming here.
If that doesn’t convince you, Joshua currently has some live shows scheduled for this Summer. You can keep up to date with all news and tour dates at his official website.
I am genuinely digging his sound and I look forward to hearing more from him. You can purchase a physical copy of his debut album over at his official website. “Always This” is also available to own from Amazon and iTunes.
