Video Interview: Josh Savage

Hey guys!

I think I've said it before, but I just really love the fact, that I get to decide which artists I want to work with.
Running this website on my own means that I have full control over the decisions.

That also means I get to choose which artists I want to interview, and which artists I don't want to interview.

I'd like to think that leads to more enjoyable interviews for everyone; the artists, the viewers and myself.

The most recent interview I filmed, was one enjoyable adventure.

After getting stopped by security for filming at Granary Square in London,
we had to find another spot - and so Josh Savage and myself ended up on a boat, which was also a book shop.
So if you're in London - make sure to find the "Word on the Water" boat and have a little look around, they also host little gigs on there!

Alright, now that I've set the scene for you, please let me introduce you to Josh.

Josh Savage is a self-managed and independent musician, originally from Winchester, UK - now based in London.

His sound can be described as Indie-Folk with Acoustic elements in it. You'll often find beautiful string arrangements in his songs.
So far, Josh independently released three EPs; "Mountains in Hurricanes", "Spaces" and "Quatre Épines" - the last one showcasing Josh's French roots. 

In 2015, Josh played 79 shows with Sofar Sounds - all across America and Europe, in just 5 months. You can stream the documentary made on the road on Vimeo -> "Living Room Tour".

His single "Whisper In The Snow" ft. Alice Pearl was played on Dermot O'Leary's BBC Radio 2 show by Jo Whiley and has been streamed over 260.000 times on Spotify.

Earlier this month Josh released his latest single "Ghosts" and blew us all away with it.

And soon Josh will be heading off on tour again - you can find out where to in the interview.

So after we climbed onto the Word on the Water boat in London, we had a little chat about "Ghosts", writing and singing in French, dealing with set backs and a lot more.

(Stay tuned until the end for some outtakes.)

Mega thanks to Josh for being such fun to film and hang out with.

And a huge thank you to James who let us film on the boat- he's possibly the coolest guy in London!
