Josh Record to play The Rainbow Birmingham

Following his recent sold-out show at The Lexington, multiple radio plays and a thumbs-up from The Sunday Times Culture, folk-soul troubadour Josh Record’s star is definitely in the ascent.

Joined by his three-piece band – guitarist Tom Prothero, keyboardist Alex Montague and backing vocalist/drummer Kandice Holmes – the 25-year-old Brixton singer-songwriter adds another string to his bow with the announcement of a number of UK headline shows, including Birmingham’s The Rainbow.

Josh releases the follow up to his stunning debut EP Bones, with The War EP August 5th via National Anthem (Chvrches, Haim). Steering towards universal touchstones of love, loyalty, mortality, solitude and community, Josh Record’s music comes from a very honest place. The result is a record of extraordinary beauty, power and depth, its melodies, vocal harmonies, chord progressions and soundscapes somehow both ancient and modern, its preoccupations, perennial.

Josh’s heart-swelling radio favourite ‘For Your Love’ from the aforementioned Bones EP, was heralded by everyone from Steve Lamacq and Zane Lowe to The Sunday Times who said “His keening falsetto invites comparisons to Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon…Record has a sensational debut album in him.”
