It was Josh’s sixteenth birthday when meeting for the first time, a man who would inspire and influence his outlook on music forever; Mr. B.B. King. This is where serious interest in music began for Josh.
Always taking his guitar to
family functions, performing in talent shows, as well as choir and the elite
jazz band at Old Mesquite High School, he played at every venue he could. Since
then, he's performed at many establishments with many more to come. The Embargo
in Fort Worth, Texas, is an example of one of the many benefit concerts he played
raising money for charities, food banks, shelters, and Texas own Ballet.
Aside from making public
appearances he also formed several bands. In 2009 the album, Light of Day, was
released featuring the KNIGHT trio, (Allen Oney, Bill Webb, and Josh Knight).
This CD was the result of spending many hours in the recording studio writing
original tunes, and collaborating wonderfully together to create a unique
sound. After playing a variety of venues including Pizza Hut Park kicking off an
FC Dallas soccer game, bookstores and coffee houses, their CD was submitted to
the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.
Anyone who has heard or
seen Josh play can easily say the guitar is not only a talent, but a passion.
Performing for his family and friends matured into a profession. Josh currently sings and plays guitar at local venues in the Dallas-Fort Worth area
along with short circuit tours routing in the United States.
The passion and meaning
within the songs he sings and writes are revealed in the emotional hard cry,
flowing from his guitar.
He is now working on a new
album collaborating with drummer Matt Chappel "Austin Allsup" and
bassist Tommy Shannon "SRV & Double Trouble".
