New artist Josh Osho is a name to watch out for in 2012.
Vocally he sounds like a cross between John Legend and Seal. This
singer/songwriter has some cracking tracks up his sleeve. It was good to hear
him tell the story behind each track before he sang the song. Birthday for
instance is about people intimidated by change, S.O.S., about feeling lonely
and isolated. He seemed genuinely taken aback by the warm reception he received
from the Leeds crowd. Without the aid of his acoustic
guitar on some of the songs, it allowed him to move around the stage more
freely and made his performance more involved. His forthcoming single,
Redemption Days featuring Ghostface Killah should be the first step to
establishing this promising new artist. The gig goer next to me summed up Josh
perfectly when she tweeted to her friend, “you have just missed a fit looking
guy with a beautiful voice”. Praise indeed.
