josh weller

It is no secret that the London-based acoustic singer/songwriter scene has become somewhat over crowded of late, yet there is a young man with more grit and personality that could convert any cynic. Josh Weller is a quirky individual; whose single "Pretty Girls" is packed with a vicious cynicism framed in the context of a chirpy pop-song. Underneath the songs cheery melody the lyrics about girls who are "never nice, cause they've been pretty all their lives" become all the more personal when we realize that Josh is talking about "one girl in particular."

Josh Weller spent his early years in Borneo, devouring his dads Elvis Presley records and when listening to songs such as 'Circus" it is easy to see the influence of Randy Newman, buddy Holy, Woody Allen and 1940s musicals. He cut his teeth in Leeds in various bands before going solo armed with a kazoo, a guitar and a loathing for much of mankind. The buzz surrounding his single certainly hasn't lifted the singer's feet too far off the ground, when I caught up with the young singer in Brick Lane he talked of the important things in the music business "Don't try and change the world. Don't try and be cool. People can always tell when you are pretending."

Standing in a crowded marketplace of acoustic singer-songwriters is a hard thing to do, but due to his cuttingly sharp and witty lyrics, Josh is sure to find success due to both his friendly nature and combination and funny and thought-provoking songs.
