JOSH Short Info

JOSH - Indie Folk Band from Zurich

Three siblings are part of this six-piece Indie band –Janine, songwriter and leader of the band, lead vocals and guitar –Vera, her sister, vocals, bass, electric guitar –Simon, her brother, vocals, xylophone, cello. A closeness of skin and memory comprise half of this band. Yannick, drums and percussion – Paul, who plays electric guitar and bass and Stefan, keys, vocals and synths make JOSH complete. They're close friends. A collection of journey seekers and truth hunters. JOSH instigates self-exploration in ways of yesterday, from the barefooted, face-painted youth settling on ideas of happiness contrary to popular belief. Rebels for happiness.

Janine began playing guitar and writing songs when she was 12 years old, and at that point in time she had been a girl scout for 6 years, sitting around camp fires and singing songs to guitar strumming. She had written poems long before that. She started when she was maybe 9 years old because she found out that she had an ancestor, who was a great poet, Benjamin Franklin Wedekind. After a couple of years writing poems, she started to write songs.

"I was fascinated by how one could form a story or mold feelings into words and then into sentences that could move you, touch something deep inside you. I wanted to be able to do the same. I grew up with music around me all of the time, classical and jazz, hip hop, reggae and funk. It’s just always been a part of me and it was plain natural to me to play music – the violin, the piano, to sing." Janine

Nowadays she's inspired by lots of different artists and I listens to all kinds of music.

JOSH is currently recording new songs and they definitely want to bring them out one way or the other and then get back on the road and play as many shows as they can, wherever the people want them.

"We don’t want to be world-famous or stinky rich, we just want to make music, play shows and move people in whatever way, makes them happy or sad. Music is a powerful thing." Janine
