Josh Leys loves to get hands-on in all aspects of his music. Unsurprisingly he's drawing a lot attention for his knack for writing a great hook and catchy chorus – as you can hear in his singles 'Miracle' and 'To Be Creating.' But what is less known is that he also produced both tracks and wrote the script for the accompanying music video, calling on director Ed Davis to turn Josh's imagination into visual reality. On top of the self-penned singles and videos, Josh is half of hiphop beatmakers Metronome Productions, has beatboxed at Big Day Out for three years running, has appeared in films, tv series, and adverts, and yet somehow he's still an approachable and lovable dude. From his homebase in Onehunga, Auckland, Josh writes from feeling - sometimes it's a happy groove-based jam into looping pedal, sometimes it's a guitar and a frustrated search for inspiration at 3am. "Hiphop is a big influence for me. Songwriting, singing, beatboxing - a lot of what I do is inspired by hiphop or hinges off that. Like the drum sound in Miracle, or putting a John Mayer kinda guitar vibe over a beatbox." Following recent shows supporting Dane Rumble in Taupo and Auckland, we can expect to hear more originals and see more of the Josh Leys live show: "I love being in the studio and of course the acting thing is fun, but for me performing is my biggest passion. I've had such a great time recently - the shows I've played have been really inspiring for me." Keep an eye out for Josh Leys' debut EP to be recorded later this year. You can get my first single Miracle on Amplifier, Vodafone, Telecom, and iTunes Worldwide!!
