The scatting on the song is what drew me in when I was surfing the web for new talent and found Josh B. The song Blue Skies really spoke to me, but the whole mixtape, which is available on datpiff.com, is definitely a must have from an indie artist! Here is what he had to say in his own words.
Where are you from? Where did your name originate?
Im from Orlando FL, my real name is Joshua Bonano, so I use the name Josh B.
How would you describe your music?
I would say my music is like new school hip hop with a indie feel to it, but i do many different kinds of songs so its hard for me to categorize it
Who were your childhood influences?
Biggie, Jay-z, Kanye West, Cam’ron, Ghost Face
-what is your first experience with music?
I always loved rap music since I was real little.
-what type of music did you listen to?
I always listened to rap music, some dance and techno, now I listen to just about everything
Why did you decide to pursue your music?
I used to make a lot of beats but I didn’t have anybody decent to rap on
them so I would rap on them myself, the songs and concepts started sounding good so I ran with it
What can the people expect from your music?
Music to listen to anytime anywhere, different sounds, I try to make new
I’m just starting to perform and get gigs, I wanna keep performing to get more fans and network
What would you describe as your biggest break in music thus far?
I got a few beats floating out there on some big names but nothing published yet
If signed, how much creative control would you want over your career?
Full creative control. I like to mix my own music, often use my own beats,
I rarely get help with music and I like it that way, I hear the music a
certain way and I want everyone to hear it the same way
Thinking back what are some life changing events that help influence your music?
Just coming up really, from trying to succeed in life and help my family
make it, to spending money on nice things sometimes and going out and
having fun socializing. and just chillin
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I would love to be making good money from the music to support myself and
my family and be touring all over, but we’ll see I gotta keep moving
Fill in the Blanks
Without music I’d be just chillin.
Music is awesome.
My music makes me feel relaxed.
I write music because it helps me get through.
Support my music because it’s actually good music.
