Welcome to TMI Joshua! We’re excited to be interviewing today, congratulations on your upcoming single release. Before we dive in, can you tell us a bit about yourself?
HI! I’m excited to be interviewed by you today! I’m a professional composer, performer, and writer! I’ve been grateful to work on some incredible projects, from 13 the Musical on Netflix to Schmigadoon! on Apple TV. I was on the Broadway national tour of A Christmas Story and am an original cast member in the Off-Broadway productions of Forbidden Broadway: The Next Generation and Trevor the Musical, among other projects.
You are a multi-hyphenate entertainer – actor, musician, and composer. Tough question, but if you had to choose, which would be your favorite and why?
I would say composer because to really be a composer, you have to be able to understand the fundamental rules for acting and music.
We are excited to hear your new single, Top Of The World. What was your inspiration for the record?
The inspiration for the song came from looking at how a lot of people feel the need to put others down on social media. It’s like they suddenly feel invincible and make negative comments about others seemingly without even thinking about who they may be hurting.
The song has a really clear message. What is Top Of The World to you?
The song is inspired by a question, asking those who bully others if they really feel like they’re at the top of the world.
What are some of your favorite lyrics in the song?
Some of my favorite lyrics in the song include;
“Feel your worries melt away,
Nothing hurts you anymore”
Having made this record, what has it taught you?
Making this song really taught me how music can be so influential and empowering to others.
Who was your producer for the song and how was the collaboration?
The producer for the song is Rocco Fiorentino. I worked with him previously on other songs I wrote, and it was a blast working with him again! He is an incredible orchestrator and producer.
What do you hope fans walk away with feeling after hearing Top Of The World?
I hope that my fans walk away feeling empowered after listening to the song.
Can you tell us 5 fun things most people don’t know about you?
I play 13 instruments, I have 2 dogs named Pokey and Daisy, I can wiggle my ears, I have way too many keyboards, and I am a Disney nerd!
