Joshua Singh’s Recent Works
Joshua stepped into the field of ‘individual artist’ last year.

He collaborates with distinctive voices and identities such as Taba Chake & Hard Kaur which makes the process more fulfilling.
Joshua produces as well as arranges and masters his own music. Like he says
“ To recognise a voice, design the sound that will accentuate it, add the lyrics and instrumentation , visualise its multi dimensions – is the joy of producing music”
His debut album “Understudy” was a hit and gave amazing tracks like “Normal Is For Fools” and “Another Day”.
This year, during the Pandemic uproar, Joshua released his song “Breakfast In Bed”. The videos is an “out of the Box’ Novel idea, wherein they featured real couples from around the world, enjoying their time together, during the lockdown times – the subtext of the concept “Breakfast in bed’. The concept naturally spoke to the imagination of its audience of today & has been a hit on YouTube and Spotify.
Some Amazing Things About The Track
Talking about his new track “All I Ever Learnt”, Joshua said that the theme of the song is the portrayal of the feeling of isolation and importantly, how our past memories and emotions only exist in the context of the present. The music video has been directed by Tanvi Gandhi who has superlatively captured the essence of the song in a sublime and metaphorical manner. The song stays with you long after you finish listening it. Kudos to both – Joshua Singh’s magical composition and voice and Gandhi’s brilliant direction.
