Hailing from sunny Southern Utah, Josh Warburton has been performing music onstage since he was a kid. Son of regional Blues standout Jesse James “Brother Music” Warburton, Josh grew up with many musical influences from Blues and Soul to Beatles and Zeppelin to Folk and Classic Rock. Bob Dylan, James Taylor and R.E.M were among the most influential artists to Josh’s style when he began writing his own songs at 15. Performing them and favorite songs of other’s at local venues, Josh learned the ropes of being in front of a crowd as a teenager.
Josh’s songwriting style is thoughtful and emotional, with relatable lyrics and inspiring passion. Crafting memorable, hooky tunes and singing them with heart is Josh’s signature style.
Warburton has performed throughout the west including the Bodega Bay Seafood, Art & Wine Festival and he has opened for such acts as SheDaisy, Little River Band & John Lee Hooker, Jr.
Josh describes his music as a blend of Folk, Blues, and Rock, and even incorporating a little Alternative Country. It’s classic Americana…a merging of decades of acoustic and electric guitar driven music.
Currently, you can catch Josh performing his unique style of acoustic music in the greater Southern Utah area, near Zion National Park.
