Musician – Journalist – Entrepreneur
It all started when I was 14, I picked up a guitar and said I’m going to change the world.
As a Cumbrian, there weren’t many opportunities for young musicians like myself. So, at 16 I left my hometown and went to Carlisle College to complete a level 3 diploma in music.
There I learnt how to perform as a professional musician, playing in several bands and finalising my diploma with an album launch.
After this, I decided that if I was to have a successful career in music, I needed to learn how to promote myself. I then set out on my most exiting journey yet, to do a BA (Hons) in music journalism at Huddersfield University.
It was here that I soon met my best friend and business partner, Lewis. Together we started to formulate plans to create an independent record label fuelled by the local community.
We started Infinite Vibrations, and together we produced and promoted over 30+ musicians from local area. It was a tremendous success, but despite this, we wanted to make more of an impact on the careers of independent musicians.
In 2019, we were granted a place on an enterprise placement year in which we would test, develop and manage our own business.
With this, Infinite Vibrations became a Musicians Entrepeneur Agency, with a mission to enhance the careers of independent musicians. A company which we are still working on to this very day.
This leads me onto JournalistJosh, as this was the year I founded my own freelance journalism and marketing business.
As you can see, I have a real passion for helping musicians to achieve their dreams and helping music businesses not just survive but thrive.
I now want to share my passion and knowledge with you. The musicians and music businesses who make it their everyday mission to succeed and grow in the music industry.
With a wealth of knowledge in the music, journalism, PR and marketing industries, I aim to deliver a professional and satisfying service which will benefit your music or your music business greatly.
I am determined to achieve tangible, quality results that conclude in increased sales, increased leads and strengthened careers in the music industry.
