Josh Olsen started singing at age 5 after being inspired by his mother. She was a singer and songwriter, so his childhood was spent in recording studios and at her concerts. A shy child, Josh was bullied in school; the decision was made to home school him from 5th grade on.
“Music was a way for me to get out my feelings and express myself. It made me feel powerful, like I was in control in a world where a lot of times, I felt helpless.”
Josh wrote his first song on the guitar when he was 5 years old. His mother led the music in their family’s church, so he began singing along side her every Sunday. He then went on to lead the youth group band, and also started touring around Texas doing battle of the band competitions with his twin brother.
Josh has released two singles in 2018 and just released his new single, “Bad Things”, co-written by two-time Grammy nominated producer, Bart Schoudel. Josh is set to release 5 more songs this year, that will complete his first solo EP.
