Josh Koons

When Josh was thirteen, he discovered his brother’s guitar on the couch with the sheet music to “American Pie” from that moment on his beloved photography, skateboarding and drawing all soon took a far back seat to his music. Josh wrote his first song “Firebird” (which had 4 chords in it)–with the first 4 chords he ever learned. Taking inspiration from Neil Young, the Beatles, The Bee Gees and many more, he amassed a considerable collection of work – each song sounding unique from the rest.

Studying jazz guitar he also gained a wide harmonic perspective , using modulations and occasionally time changes-till admiring the pop sensibility ,  he builds songs around memorable hooks that get stuck in the head. Josh was born in New Jersey two towns over from where the “Jersey Boys” (the Four Seasons) started their band.  Josh now lives in Austin,TX with his girlfriend and two dogs.
