Josh has been getting some rave reviews from his European tour this past November. Check out what people have had to say!
AN OUTSTANDING CONCERT
“… the great discovery of the Lucerne Blues Festivals 2012 is called Josh Smith. Live on stage, the musician from California presented his haunting songs, produced in a highly contemporary style … on his album “Don’t Give Up On Me,” considerably more earthy, bluesy and dynamic, sending his audience into raptures with his carefree attitude and freshness. Haunting wind section parts, a tough rhythm section and Smith’s dynamic, emotional guitar were the ingredients of an outstanding concert.
JOSH SMITH AND BAND DELIVER BRAZENLY CONFIDENT PERFORMANCE
… Josh Smith is rightly considered one of the most diverse blues rock guitarists and one of the great discoveries of recent years. … His sharply accentuated single-note style is perfection, his fingers flying across the six strings in his technically accomplished style … Music with the kind of power and attitude that is difficult to find these days.… Josh Smith proves that blues music is still very much alive. If this man was a parish priest – his church would definitely be full every Sunday. An amazingly confident performance!

TO CUT A LONG STORY SHORT: DAMNED GOOD!
As a string artist, Smith operates in a class of his own, casting a spell with his total grasp of melodies and unexpectedly harmonic turns, as well as a clear and precise Telecaster sound which has no peer, never allowing a minute’s boredom even in extended solo passages. … if the future of guitar music sounds like Smith’s Tele and Morgan amps, there’s no reason to worry about the coming years.
