Joshua Micah About
Joshua made a name for himself singing on the mobile app, Vine. He gained 750,000 fans in the course of a few years. The app since then has been discontinued.
In September of 2015, Joshua moved to Los Angeles, California from Hartford, Connecticut to work on his songwriting career.
He began working on songs for various TV shows and film and shortly realized that this path of music wasn’t for him.
I felt totally lost. I felt like I lost my purpose. I remember laying on my back in my apartment in silence for an hour. I kind of had this conversation with God and knew that I needed to write a song about it. I met 2 of my closest friends at a church in LA. We started hanging out regularly and we happened to work together really well as songwriters and producers.
Together, LA production duo “Hatch” and Joshua wrote “Parachute" not knowing the success that the song would have.
At the time, Joshua didn’t have a team. He released the song himself on social media and emailed radio stations off of Google searches.
It was the most unprofessional thing ever, but it worked!
The song was picked up by national radio station WAY-FM, and several other stations across the US.
It shortly after became a #1 song on the Billboard Hot AC/CHR chart.
His second single, “Who Says?” also landed as a #1 on the chart. The song features saxophone player and friend Jessie Malloy who tours with acts like Panic At The Disco.
After meeting with several record labels, he decided to stay independent and continue working with his close friends on new music.
God has been so faithful, he is the only reason I’m able to keep making music. I’m excited to see where he takes me with this new music.
His new EP 20XX is out now.
