One Man - One Guitar
"I stay out of the big cities as much as I can. I like to travel on small roads with a couple old guitars. I wear pearl snap shirts, boots & an old Stetson. I drive through little towns, either while the sun is rising or sinking down. I'll hit the small rooms & nice intimate venues then drive off into the darkness.
I enjoy simple things, like which way the wind blows or those 3 chords of that Bob Dylan song. There is to much noise and confusion in the world today. It's hard enough, when every where you look someone has a phone glued to their face. Step outside, go find a river. Leave your phone at home, take in the beauty that surrounds you. Breathe deep, live simply, love one another."
This young man sings about life, about the ups and downs we've all faced along the way. He bares his soul. Honest, stark and raw. A wandering troubadour worth hearing.
Joshua Kloyda, coming out of small town Minnesota, is young in years but his music has a lifetime of livin' in it, hard-knocks, hard-times, love and passion, despair, longing, beauty and tears. Feels like lifetimes. Joshua's songs are raw, from his heart, inviting you on a journey down the many roads he's traveled.
Joshua was 13 when his folks bought him his first guitar; the stories have been flowing from his soul ever since. Coffee shops, old clubs and bars, dirt roads, river banks, and the miles of steel rails he's walked all define his music and bring his lyrics to life. He's got a lot of stories to tell, touching each of us in different ways, under the skin where life is really happening.
Joshua's music is life, the deep darkness and the bright lights of our inner and outer landscapes, searching for what's real, restlessness, contentment, love found and love lost, touching people's hearts, meeting them where they're at, connection. Traveling, unraveling, the journey we call life. One man, one guitar.
