: Bio

Independent Reggae Artist Mighty Joshua engages audiences by opening minds and activating bodies through song. Conscious lyrics flow freely to create distinctive refrains that pulse with pride against rhythms rooted in percussion. His soulful exploration in the evolution of sound creates an expression of reggae for the modern day.

Mighty Joshua plays in a multitude of arrangements including high energy live performances with support of his back-up band and at times an acoustic configuration. He has performed at top tier music festivals LOCKN’, MOJA, Austin Reggae Fest, Camp Barefoot, and Capital Fringe Fest. From mountain top concerts to intimate club gigs, he invites listeners of all ages to experience the spirit of reggae.

MJ’s musical roots in African percussion led to experimenting with sound and rhythm. Soon after exposure to Djembe and Djun Djun drums they became a part of his playing repertoire which also includes the Didgeridoo. Mighty Joshua has opened for several internationally acclaimed reggae acts including Steel Pulse, Culture w/ Kenyatta Hill, Akae Beka, the Meditations, the Itals, and Ziggy Marley.

Mighty Joshua is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers. The not-for-profit performance-rights organization is a diverse family of music creators representing many voices, but are united in their mission to make the world a better place with music. When he’s not living the life of a professional musician, Joshua enjoys integrating music for social awareness and celebrating the impact individuals can make.
