Joshua Linsky is a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance. During his residency at the renowned institute, Linsky studied privately with multi-grammy award winning artist Terri Lyne Carrington and other prolific figures in modern music. After finishing his undergraduate education Josh traveled across the globe to Ghana, West Africa to attain an even deeper connection to his artistry. During this time Linsky was also the musical director of the Boston based hip hop duo The Urban Nerdz. Under Josh’s direction the group was awarded Hip Hop Act of the Year and Best Hip Hop group at both the New England Music Awards and the New England Urban Music Awards. In August 2013, Josh made his debut as a recording artist with his EP International Connection. The project features a collective of musicians from Berklee as well as The Urban Nerdz and other special guests. After the release of his first recording project Linsky made the move to Los Angeles where he is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts Degree at California Institute of the Arts under mentor Joe LaBarbera. Josh is currently preparing to release his second recording project this year; a full length album featuring artists from his EP along with new friends from the west coast. Both projects cover a spectrum of styles ranging from hip hop, r&b, soul, and funk to jazz, African music and influences from different cultures.
