Wistful, melancholy, concisely and carefully stated, Josh Birdsong is a folk-based singer-songwriter from Southeast Texas who sometimes dabbles in rock, pop, blues and country, but always remains personal, introspective, and honest in his song. He has been writing songs since he was 17, and has only recently set out to record them. He has amassed a considerable collection of crafted tunes and intends on sharing them, one album at a time. He recently released his first single, "A Week, A Day, An Evenin," followed by his full length debut, "Seven Daughters," and is taking strides to record his next album this summer.
Music is my way to connect with others, to share a connection between audience and performer, and feel a little more together and a little less alone.
To be on a label, to receive acknowledgement and admiration from my musical heroes, to see my full potential realized, to always make music to the end of my days, to meet new friends, and to spread peace, love, and unity in the world
Replacing divisions with discussions to elicit empathy and peace between opposing points of view

The desire to not be alone, the desire for unity, the desire for peace, and the desire to say something new and worth while, to tell my story
You are not alone, you are loved, and you are not forsaken
Invigorated, excited, like I'm meeting a new person and sharing my heart with them
I think most musicians live in their own musical suburbs, with a local group of fans that can sustain them and their career, but a few still make it to the big time. I think monetization could be improved, by raising the percentages that musicians receive from streaming.
I like it so far, but I have just started on it
When no one truly listens to what you are saying
Yes, I go to local house shows, participate in a songwriting collective, and go to shows at local venues
Either have insanely amazing songs and performances, or be able to do a little (or a lot) of everything, i.e: social skills, marketing, promotion, recording, mixing, youtube videos, networking, collaborating, in addition to your own music
