Josh instantly fell in love with singing swing and his coach encouraged him to put on showcases of his music. When Josh left school his father, Richard, decided to manage him and has got him the majority of his professional work.

Josh's song That Sounds Good To Me was masterminded by music legend Pete Waterman who produced numerous hits for e.g. Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley or Steps.
