Josh + Bex are a dreamy Folk-Noir duo from the Okanagan Valley of BC. Their spellbinding harmonies and honed yet rustic sound, meet at the intersection of hope and sorrow as they intuitively and vulnerably craft songs that explore the wondrous realm of the human experience. Close your eyes and think Tim Burton meets Fleetwood Mac, while you drift away into their haunting, yet soothing and familiar dreamscape.
This soul-stirring duo bring a unique synthesis of east and west coast in their warm onstage banter, performance and storytelling. Josh engages the audience, influenced by a broad lineage of eclectic song-smithing, while Bex, approaches the audience with a charmingly introspective aptitude. Together they have woven their flawlessly blended harmonies into their mindful and dynamic performance--presenting a juxtaposition of pin-drop moments with explosions of heart-felt intensity and jubilation.
The pair have consecutively placed in the Kelowna Now's top-three bands/musicians since 2020, giving them wide recognition throughout the Okanagan Valley and beyond. The duo received their festival start, after winning the local Emerging Artist contest, at the internationally acclaimed Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival in 2019. Most recently, they warmed up the stage with Bahama's and The Paper Kites at Red Bird Brewing's Nest Fest '23 and played Kelowna’s premier indie winter festival, Fireside Festival (2018, 2021, 2023). Additionally, they had the opportunity to share a bill with Moontricks at the Jasper Folk Music Festival in September '23. Catch them this summer, at Saskatchewan's Napatak Ramble, July 5th and 6th.
Josh + Bex released their self-titled EP in October 2019 and have recently followed up with their sophomore record, Everything is Everything, May 20th, 2022. Everything is Everything is Josh + Bex latest full-length dream folk production. Whimsical and illuminating—these songs bridge the audience from the physical to the metaphysical world.
