‘the most exciting new talent I have come across in years.’ Max Weinberg

“His songs are reflective, often poignant love tales developed with memorable melodies that hook the listener in” Maverick

“I started working with Josh Taerk because of his ability to write very strong melodies and compelling lyrics. Josh also possesses another unique asset, that of his voice; when he sings you know it’s him, instantly.”Terry Brown

Josh Taerk releases his new single ‘Casie’ on December 9th. Speaking about the track he says,“It’s about that first love, that really innocent love, but also a love that we both knew could never be.” Josh’s melodic pop-rock has a retro edge channeling his inspirations from classic songwriters such as Bruce Springsteen and Adam Duritz. Josh recalls, “I’ll never forget the night that I wrote my first song, ‘Smell The Roses’. I felt so alive and I’ve been writing ever since.”

Canadian singer/songwriter Josh Taerk will return to Britain in November for a Coffee House Session tour. The two week run of daytime performances in the university cafes are curated by Radio 1’s Huw Stevens who aims to bring live music back to university campuses.


Following extensive touring in Canada and North America, Josh is serving a lengthy live apprenticeship in the UK, with three national support tours under his belt plus a recent run of his own headline shows in October. “I believe in putting in the hours. The more shows I’ve played the more I’ve learnt as a musician and as a songwriter and the tours, and the reaction the songs had, have definitely influenced my writing and how my album sounds.”


Josh and his own brand of melodic rock have attracted the support of fellow musicians including Max Weinberg of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band (who invited Josh on stage with him), John Oates (who booked him to play the Aspen Songwriters Festival), Terry Brown (who produced his album) and Lawrence Gowan (who played on his album). “When someone who has inspired you says good things about your own music and wants to be involved in what you are doing it is pretty mind blowing. I’m fortunate to have had such great support and it motivates me to be even better.”


Having played his own shows in London at The Water Rats in King’s Cross, The Underbelly in Hoxton Square, The Enterprise and The Monarch in Camden, The Bedford in Balham as well as shows in Birmingham, Brighton, Manchester and in Bristol, Josh is looking forward to the Coffee House Sessions tour as well as shows at The Workshop, Hoxton on November 25th and The Good Ship, Kilburn November 28th. “I’m looking forward to getting back out there on my own and meeting people again. In my experience I have found that people in the UK are so receptive to new music and actively seek out indie acts when they are looking for live music. That is certainly one of the things that I love about playing in the UK”


“It was my good fortune to have seen Josh Taerk perform in his hometown of Toronto during the Fall of 2010. He blew me away with his presentation and songwriting abilities. When I performed with my big band in my hometown in New Jersey a few weeks later I asked Josh to open the show. Again, he mightily impressed the audience on his US debut with his voice, his guitar, and his songs. I’ve known, and played with, a few singer/songwriters in my time, and I can tell you-Josh Taerk has what it takes.” – Max Weinberg
