What's that sound? Is it:

  • Social Distortion playing a James Taylor tribute concert?
  • Jackson Browne backed by Green Day as conducted by Randy Newman?
  • The result of a recombinant genetic experiment utilizing the DNA of Billy Joel and Billy Idol?

Joshua Bennett is a singer-songwriter from Portland, Oregon whose songs explore the wide, often paradoxical range of human nature, from the noble to the reprehensible. His sets feature sentimental, family-man, acoustic ballads juxtaposed with full-tilt, bad boy, blues-rock songs celebrating the misfit and the rebel.

Josh has been writing songs and performing in various bands in the Portland area since 2000. He is currently playing shows around the greater Portland area with his band, Carbon 40, in support of their debut album, "The Fireman's Daughter".
