Day 1: Josh Savage | #HITSBC16

Hey guys!

I'm seriously tempted to use caps right now.
Oops, sorry, it just happened.

I am slightly over-excited because it's finally time for another edition of our annual Birthday Countdown again.
This is the one project I'm absolutely passionate about and it always brings the HITS community together to celebrate. (Which is by far the loveliest thing!)

What is #HITSBC16?
HITSBC16 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2016.
Throughout the entire month of February, we will be celebrating this website's fourth birthday.
One artist/band a day is going to wish us a happy birthday and then perform a song exclusively for this sweet occasion.

Who is performing today?
Josh Savage.
He is a singer/songwriter about to be based in London, UK. He's originally from Winchester, UK and has roots in Paris, France.
His bilingual upbringing led to Josh writing music in both English and French.

Josh's sound is often described as a mixture of folk and rock and his musical influences range from Gabrielle Aplin to Saint Raymond to Snow Patrol to Bombay Bicycle Club and Bonobo.

As a child who "sang before he spoke", it was obvious that Josh was going to pursue a music career.
Whilst international fan can sing along to Josh's first two EPs "Mountains In Hurricanes" and "Spaces", his latest release "Quatre Épines" showcases the beautiful language that is French.

What is special about this video?
Well, the song Josh performs for us my favourite song of his and I'm sure you'll find out why.
This performance is very intimate and very personal. The fact that Josh filmed it with a GoPro camera makes it even cooler.
So, today we get to sit down in his room (not literally, we're no creeps!) and listen to this gorgeous performance.

Without further ado, here is Josh Savage performing "Your Lips" for house in the sand!

Where can we find Josh Savage online?
Website | Twitter | Facebook | Soundcloud | YouTube | Instagram

Who do we need to thank?
With Josh being a self-managed artist, the only person I was in touch with to organize this performance was Josh himself. And he was an absolute pleasure to work with.
So Josh, thank you a million times for this marvellous performance!

What can we do now? 
If you enjoyed this article, please help us reach more people by sharing it along with the hashtag #HITSBC16. Everybody who uses the hashtag on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram has the chance to win something amazing once the countdown is over.

I hope you enjoyed day 1 of our birthday party!

Day 2:
