Down-tempo, electronic, indie-soul artist Joshua Worden releases his new full-length albums filled with slow burners. Entitled "Always This," the new album has a grown and sexy feel to it. The lyrics are seasoned and the production and song arrangements are well thought out. Syncopated, melodic, funky bass with a thick back-end and soft tones with a rhythmic pzazz, "Alway This" gets a thumbs up from the entire USL team.
"Recently Joshua released a new music video for the single "Midnight", which can be viewed on here.
"Joshua Worden is a solo artist and producer based in Atlanta, GA, whose music is an original blend of R&B, jazz and indie pop with electronic production. The mood is downtempo; the "slow burn". Inspired by artists such as Frank Ocean, Raphael Saadiq and James Blake, his music and lyrics, though accessible, veer heavily towards introspective and atypical territory. Joshua is a trained musician (in jazz guitar) and, as a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter, he writes, arranges and produces all of his own material."
"I love music and genuinely believe that it is my path. I feel that music, more than any other pursuit, is the way that I can give back to the world."
"Joshua released his debut EP, "The Withered Tree" in July of 2012. He will be releasing his first full-length album, the daring and vulnerable "Always This", in June 2013. Worden's live band consists of himself (vocals, keys, guitar, synth, samples) and Will Montgomery (drums, vocals, samples)." -I.M.P.
