His sometimes satirical and unashamedly heartfelt lyrics draw the picture of who he is and where he is going. Hailing from Chico, CA, Josh Funk started writing songs as soon as he figured out his first three chords and by the age of 15 was already winning city songwriting competitions against people twice his age. 'I never thought through what I was doing when I was a kid. I just started writing songs and that's still what I do today. Now looking back on it, I feel blessed for my naivety, and wish I had more of it.' By the time he was 17, Josh started to build a small following when he was given his own night at a coffee shop called the Daily Grind. 'I played there for about five months, and in a way my songwriting grew up then. At first only a couple of friends showed up to watch me but by the end, the place was standing room only. This was soon followed by his first solo effort in 2000 with the release of "The Outlet Disadvantage" followed in 2004 by his 6 song EP "A Jukebox Envy." One particular song "Supermodel" caught notice of L.A. producer Rob Beaton (Buckethead, Adam Cohen, Budapest Symphony Orchestra) who brought Josh down to track "So Glad You Could Make It" which would end up being released on the Swinghouse Records compilation of up and coming alternative artists to watch out for. 2007 will see the release of his third album "The Face You Show Your Enemies." With more production, songwriting experience, and exposure this time around Josh has honed his style with recognizable force. "My songs deal with everything between bliss and disaster...my life as I've known it so far.'
