Life & Work with Josh Ferreira

Today we’d like to introduce you to Josh Ferreira. 

Hi Josh, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I began my career in music straight out of high school. Career may be an overstatement. I started playing guitar while still in school. It wasn’t until my late twenties that I started writing as a songwriter. Up to that point, I played rhythm guitar and had a hand at creating the music for those bands. Was not much of a lyricist at that time. It wasn’t until around 2010 that I started becoming a songwriter. It took a while and some really bad songs to finally gain some confidence with writing. It would be a few years before becoming confident enough to go in the studio and start recording. Now, I’m getting ready to go back into the studio. I have a new album that I’m truly looking forward to making a reality. 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It hasn’t always been smooth. I’ve been in bands that played some tough shows. Especially in bars where you have to fight just to get paid. Many artists who’ve “paid their dues” probably understand these issues. I think showing up to a venue and being told you will not be playing or getting paid that night is the toughest thing most bands/artists have to endure. 

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a songwriter. I write, record, and perform my songs. I am best known for my career as a corporate/private event music specialist. Playing music for large company events, weddings, and non-profit organizations that help raise money for cancer research. 

Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I am currently playing locally in Cincinnati. Yet, I do travel for events. I’m always up for an adventure that allows me to play music and unlock some joy in people’s lives.
