Born in Stroud, Gloucestershire, but based in Brixton for the past decade, Josh Record is an alternative British artist. His first release on indie label ‘National Anthem’ in 2012 made it to number 2 in the Singer Songwriter charts on iTunes in the UK. He then followed this with the release of two EPs ‘The War’ and ‘Bones’ which both became Zane Lowe’s Hottest Records.
He has been working on his debut album ‘Pillars’ with Mike Crossey, who has previously worked with Arctic Monkeys, Foals, The 1975, Jake Bugg and Two Door Cinema Club. His dramatic, lush music features a voice that recalls Tom Odell, Chris Martin and even the heightened melodrama of Jeff Buckley.
This last year saw Josh Record play shows with Lorde, Bastille, Michael Kiwanuka and London Grammar. He most recently toured as support for Sam Smith across the UK.
Now with the anticipated release of his debut album, Record is set to perform at a number of festivals across the UK including, T in the Park, Wilderness and V Festival.
Josh Record also plays a special headline show at St. Philips Chuch in Salford on Friday 10th October. Head HERE for tickets.
