My Bio

Hey! My website is

http://sonicbids.com/joshuasanders    

My name is Josh Sanders and I perform my own songs at venues in and around NYC with a fiddler & bass player. I am heavily influenced by Americana/alt-country music ie Townes van Zandt etc. I have recently had radio airplay on Americana/country radio on WKCR 89.9  (NYC) on the Tennessee Border Show & WICR 88.7 (Indianapolis). Besides Townes I am a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen. I am currently recording a full length album in a studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn which I expect to have finished by June of 2014.

On Townes van Zandt's guitar playing...

    I find it interesting that Townes' guitar playing is so rarely commented upon.  I suppose it is because he was so often surrounded by a band of stellar musicians, or else because his songwriting was so absolutely stellar that you tend not to pay attention to his musicianship skills.
