About Joshua

A skilled musician with almost 20 years of playing experience, I've been privileged to play in different continents, countries, and cities.
Pianist
London
Public liability insurance of £1 million

I was born into the family of a Reverend and predominantly spent most of my musical years playing in my local church from the tender age of 5. I then become the school pianist in primary schools, playing for most of the songs sung during the assemblies as well as playing at home to myself where I developed my skills. I had the privilege of flying to other countries at a young age to play with my parents who were into music themselves; my dad a choir leader in the late 80s and my mum was a singer who went on to record three studio albums between 1997 and 2009. In high school I continued to play in the school I moved to and again became their official pianist. The school was in my home country of Nigeria so the experience there was quite fun for me. I returned to the UK and took GCSE Music. Very quickly, my music teacher noticed my talent to be able to play music without reading sheets or as others will call it "The art of improvisation". He then began to challenge me to develop myself as a musician which involved me learning the theoretical aspect of music which I hadn't really delved into as a young musician. I took on board his advice and gradually began to understand music from a completely different perspective. Now 23 years old, I am a Music Business Management graduate, I have released my debut single which is on all major platforms and I have played for/ worked with some amazing artists including Dr. Ron Kenoly, Loose Ends (The band), Gloreewyah, Faith Child and many more.

Reviews

From customers:

Loose M, 2019 years ago

An outstanding musician who is not only blessed with perfect pitch but has the ability to learn almost any song given to him.

Jola J, 2020 years ago

A versatile musician, Josh has proved that he is not just a genius on the keyboard/piano but has what it takes to create his own content and write his own music. Working with someone like him will make anyone marvel at his level of skill
