YES, LOVEGROVE IS HIS REAL NAME.
Hailing from Melbourne, singer/songwriter LOVEGROVE brings an innate skill and talent to music that is becoming increasingly difficult to find.
After gaining immense popularity through a series of soulful live performances down the east coast of Australia, Josh recorded and released his anticipated and well received EP 'Infinite' in early 2015. He has become a recognised name amongst the Brisbane music scene, and has spent an exciting twelve months working alongside reknowned Australian singer Darren Percival in preparation for a new innovative stage show which will debut alongside a full length live album in Spring of 2017.
LOVEGROVE graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium with a Bachelor of Popular Music in 2012, and since then has been honing his craft as a live looping sensation while holding onto his roots as a compelling story teller. With a passion for songwriting and captivating harmony, Josh utilises his array of effects pedals and loop stations to create a tantalising soundscape of beat boxing, acoustic and electric guitar, ukulele, flute and an unmistakeable vocal styling which cross the boundaries of all genres.
At the Woodford Folk Festival 2016/17, LOVEGROVE released his first of a series of independent singles capturing his messsages of positivity which are woven into each of these sonic creations. 'I'm Not Done' is now available as a physical CD as well as worldwide on iTunes and Spotify.
"Whether taking a festival stage shoeless in the sun, a theatre stage up in lights, or immersing in the echo of an empty room, Josh has a uniqueness and raw truth about him that is distinctly compelling. Don't waste time trying to work out whether you've seen him... You'll know if you have."
