Josh Roach


I've always had a deep passion for music, and absolutely love creating original music and collaborating with other artists. Coming from a small town in South Georgia, I've been around country music my entire life, but my favorite styles are rock and reggae. In recent years, musical diversity has been a big focus point, and it has greatly opened my mind to ideas I never used to have.






What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is an outlet for thoughts and feelings that otherwise may be trapped inside your mind and heart.

What is your music dream?

I don't care to be famous, but I'd love to make a decent living solely through music.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I'd start with getting rid of all politicians.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Simple Man

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Metallica, Chris Stapleton, Chris Cornell, Mike Love, Bob Marley

What inspires you to make music?

1. My natural love/obsession with music 2. Doubters/haters

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Love will always be more powerful than hatred.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I feel like I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. It's a sense of calm and excitement at the same time.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Musicians get used and taken advantage of in today's industry. Streaming companies and record labels need to stop being greedy and pay artists much more for their work. They make all the money and pay table scraps to most of the artists that bring in those dollars. This has to stop.

What do you think of Drooble?

So far, I like it, but I'm new to it, so I really need to spend time to get a real feel for it.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Non response from venues when trying to book gigs. ?

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes. I go to other artists' performances as often as I can when I'm not performing somewhere.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

I'm still working on that, but I keep hearing that image is everything. I don't necessarily agree with that philosophy, but it seems to be true in today's music industry. To me, the raw passion and talent of a person should be enough.
