Josiah Guile: The Solo Project

When Josiah asked me to write this page for him I wasn't really sure what he wanted me to say.  When I asked him, he would just tell me, "I don't know, man.  I'm asking you to do it so that I don't have to think about it!" and while I kind of thought that was a little rude, I decided to help him out anyway.  

Josiah has been making all sorts of noise for a very long time.  While some of the stuff he records is pretty good, most of the music he sings when we're hanging out is pretty awful.  It's always some Disney song, or some show tune from the Newsies soundtrack.  He's definitely got talent when he's writing and performing his own stuff, but most of the time he chooses to sing nothing but songs that get stuck in your head for days on end.

This probably isn't what he wanted me to write, but he gave me no direction to follow here.  So I guess he's going to just have to either write up something himself, or be lazy and post this.   Regardless though, he does put a lot of effort into his own music, and I really think that more people should check his stuff out and support him.  Maybe if enough people show interest he'll focus more on his own music, and might stop singing "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias every flipping day.

Ok Josiah, that's all I'm writing.  Feel free to post it if you're really that lazy.

Musical Style

My style, like my inspirations, is all over the place. But it's safe to say that I tend to lean more towards the harder side of things.   Though when I'm writing music the last thing I think about is what genre I'm trying to write in.  I basically favor writing songs and music that incorporates all the things that I like.  Be it melodic, catchy, heavy, ethereal, orchestral, acoustic, or electronic.  If it fits, it sits! 

I haven't updated my current catalog in a few years.  The tracks I've made available don't really represent my current musical state.  That's because all my effort has been going to a super secret music project, which I assure you is worth the effort.  I can't WAIT to share it with you all!

My fellow Americans, ugh, let me be clear, Josiah’s music is great. If there’s any indication that people dissagree, well that’s ok, because I still like it.
