For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough then tell us more!!


My music is lively, melodic, and moving.


What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.


I can’t choose my favorite part about being an artist because every piece compliments the others so well. You can’t record without performing and writing, since each part is so intertwined. They are all truly equally important.


Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?


Being in the recording studio for me is a lot of fun! When I record my own songs, I typically go back and forth between my computer and my microphone to make sure that what I’m singing sounds like what I have in mind. In a studio session, there may be several musicians, engineers, producers, and others, so it's a very different environment, but still exciting.



Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?

Music! Music is what I love to do, but if I had to choose something else, I would say performing. Whenever I have downtime, I often sit by my piano and write music. I also love being on my Discord. We have thousands of members now on there and I share a lot of music with my friends and fans as sneak peaks on there before I ever release it to the public. You can join at

Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?


I admire Alan Menken the most since I grew up listening to his music. It really had such a huge impact on me growing up and he continues to inspire my musical style to this day.


Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?


The most emotional song I’ve written is one that I’ve yet to release called “Future Me”. It's a song that explores life and death, and what you would tell your future self if you only had a day left to live. It was inspired by some stories I read, and I hope it inspires others to live your best life and shed any negativity!

Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?


I am! For updates regarding some new songs, I’m releasing very soon, you can follow me on my Instagram, Discord and TikTok! (Instagram/TikTok: @joshuaturchin and Discord: https://discord.gg/joshuaturchin)
