Emerging as a dual national, singer, songwriter, who’s music resembles a twist of soulful ballads and acoustic pop. Josh Middleton, has spent part of his early years between London and Johannesburg, honing in on the enormity of diverse cultures each city offers which has influenced his writing and genre. At 17-years-old, Josh has burst into an industry defying norms, crossing borders and drawing tears to his audience's eyes through the powerful lyrics he writes. With his quirky appearance and maturity beyond his years, there is much to love about this old-soul.
Josh started performing at a young age and took to YouTube to share covers of artists' songs who influenced him and shortly after was noticed by multiple labels, scouts and, by absolute chance, One Direction's former drummer, Josh Devine. Josh started working with music industry heavy-weights who had worked with the likes of Jason Derulo and Coke Studios and went on to write and release his debut album which released at No. 2 on the iTunes Pop Top Charts, this lead him to become one of the youngest artists to enter the Shazam Top 100, peaking at No. 21.
Josh is quickly entering the "festival scene" and has featured and charted on nearly every major radio station and press outlet in South Africa. As seen in a recent interview with People Magazine relating to his latest single, "'Stay’ is a powerful new direction for Josh Middleton and we’re really enjoying watching his talent grow and adapt as he gets older." (And yes, this powerful new direction for Josh and his music will be seen in the future to come.)
Now, with close to 3.1 million monthly impressions on social media, a 999%+ increase in streams over the last year, a sold-out European tour, and an album on the way, Josh has become a fast-growing force to be reckoned with and with a label who has worked with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Stormzy and Chance the Rapper by his side, Josh has a bright future ahead of him internationally.
