Joshua Ingram was born and raised in Texas and has been making music for more than 20 years. With his training in voice, piano, and percussion he has been able to invent his own style of writing and guitar playing that makes his sound unique and interesting. After studying for three years at the University of North Texas, he has set out to write music about life and play with as many people in as many places as he can. Joshua has been influenced by a number of musicians in countless styles of music and that is apparent when you hear the blend of rock, blues, jazz, and even country in the songs that he writes. Whether it's a sultry ballad or a ripping guitar rock tune the music is full of soul and emotion. Ingram has had a love affair with the acoustic guitar for most of his life and feels that, unlike it's electric counterpart, the instrument can breathe and express the emotions that sometimes words cannot. Make no mistake about it though; a Joshua Ingram show will not be folky or frail because of the fierceness with which he approaches this typically docile instrument. After his first independent release of "The Distance" he plans to begin writing his sophomore record immediately. Playing 3 to 5 nights a week, having a family, and running a band are all in a week's work for Joshua who says: "This is all I've ever wanted out of life."
