Joshua Vana Show
This Wednesday, Joshua Vana prepares to release his new EP Away From My Door. We first had the opportunity to hear Joshua at the 2008 Rumble Down Under, where he impressed both the audience and judges with his unique style of music, which he describes as “under the umbrella of Americana”.
Joshua grew up listening to his parent’s old LP’s, in particular Chuck Berry. He started playing guitar at the age of 12, but didn’t really start performing until he started attending JMU. His musical influences range from Woody Guthrie to Muddy Waters.
If Joshua could collaborate with any artist on a CD, his choice would be David Rawlings and Gillian Welch. He is always enthralled with them and “is blown away by their music”. And maybe some day he’ll have that chance. After graduation, he plans to continue to be a musical expeditionary. He also is currently in the works of forming his own music publishing company.
So come out this Wednesday to TDU at 8pm, and hear Joshua perform some of the songs on Away From My Door. The EP’s will also be available to buy for $5!
