Josh Kemp is a Singer/Songwriter, Musical Director, Composer from Nottingham.
Josh uses just an acoustic guitar and a loop pedal to create a sound thicker and bigger than your normal acoustic artist. Having played 220 gigs on repetitive tours of the UK in 2013, including 26 festivals, his set and audience participation skills are perfectly practiced to suit both main stage festivals and more intimate acoustic gigs.
Josh has been playing and writing music since he was 4 years old but it was only after the success of his summer 2012 olympic show in front of 18,000 people that he started turning ears and managed to land support slots with the likes of Mark Morris (from the Bluetones), The Coronas (who 2 weeks after sold out the O2 Dublin), London songwriter Frank Hamilton and played festivals like Ynot Festival, where people were queuing out of the tent to sing along to Josh’s ‘Hangover song’, and Oxford Folk Festival.
Through the buzz he had generated on the local music scene in the Midlands, Josh secured air play on local radio stations around the UK and was the BBC’s featured artist for Andy Potters BBC Derby acoustic afternoon show, BBC Manchester, as well as being featured multiple times on Dean Jackson's 'The Beat' for BBC Introducing, and labelled as one to watch for 2013.
