Here's a little more about Joshua!
Drummer, guitarist, vocalist, composer and actor, Joshua Van Ness, was born into a musical family. At the age of 12, he was gifted his first drum kit, and his love affair with music began! Joshua took some drum lessons along the way, but learned most by listening to tape cassettes of Prince, The Black Crowes & Aerosmith, often singing and playing drums at the same time. In his late teens, Joshua started playing guitar and writing songs. Perhaps because Joshua is a singer/songwriter, his playing always embodies a “song first” mentality, and often has a soulful lean.
Van Ness has toured the US and performed internationally as a drummer and guitarist. In 2016, Joshua joined pop/rock band, The Wag. In 2018, The Wag, celebrated their 20yr anniversary with a tour and by releasing a full length album, “We Carry On”, featuring 2 songs written by Van Ness (including the title track).
In 2019 Joshua signed on as the musical director of the “How it Ends” podcast, composing the show’s theme song and scoring it’s sound track. Joshua also plays the character Nolan Jones.
Currently, Joshua Van Ness is prepping for the release of his 6th solo album, “SoulRock” and will tour regionally in support of the new record. You will also find Joshua on the road with The Wag, performing solo shows, subbing on drums for bands like Lost Romance and The Strazzacasters, or playing drums with his tribute band Power of 3, which celebrates the music of classic power trios from Rush to RUN DMC.
“Every day, I fall deeper in love with music. I simply try to put every ounce of myself into everything I do”-Joshua Van Ness. -
