Fresno native Joshua Heath was born with music in his blood. As soon as he could stand he was hanging onto the household speakers to dance, and it wasn't long before he was trying out the household instruments. He played guitar and piano before settling on acoustic bass and trombone, and by the age of 10, was playing in local honor orchestras.

Fresno native Joshua Heath was born with music in his blood. As soon as he could stand he was hanging onto the household speakers to dance, and it wasn't long before he was trying out the household instruments. He played guitar and piano before settling on acoustic bass and trombone, and by the age of 10, was playing in local honor orchestras. Acoustic and electric bass quickly became his primary instruments, leading Joshua to jazz music, which became his love and focus.
Throughout his high school years, Joshua played in as many groups as possible, covering a wide variety of music, including jazz, classical, gospel, rock, funk and hip-hop. He was able to travel and compete in jazz festivals, even touring Japan in the Monterey Jazz Festival All-Star High School Big Band. Although his original intention was to attend a conservatory in New York, Joshua ended up in Los Angeles and ultimately completed his masters degree in Jazz Studies at USC. During this time, Joshua found a new love in electronic music and began to DJ locally.
As his favorite experience at USC was composing for the big band and hearing his work come to life, he naturally began producing his own music. His first proper house track entitled 'You Wanna Dance?' was picked up by Grab Recordings in the summer of 2005. Soon after it was released in Feburary 2006, it became a favorite of world renowned dj/producer Miguel Migs. Miguel liked "that combo of funk, soul, bump and grit to rock the dancefloor" so much, that he signed Joshua's second release to his label, Salted Music, and has made Joshua an exclusive Salted artist. ...show less
