josh stevensJosh Stevens is an American singer, record producer, songwriter, and engineer of Native American (Apache)  and Spanish decent. Raised in Los Angeles, his works are Grammy Award- winning, RIAA Platinum-certified, Billboard Award-nominated, Juno Award-nominated (Canada), and ARIA Music Awards Platinum-certified (Australia). Josh has worked with the likes of Warren G, Snoop Dogg, The Game, LMFAO, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, Nicki Minaj, and Wiz Khalifa, to name a few.  He has also found his own modern sound in the pop/indie-rock/dance styles of music.

In 2011, Josh toured with LMFAO, visiting countless countries in Asia, Europe, South America, Central America, Canada, and the U.S.  In 2012 Josh was one of Sky Blu and Goonrock’s personal producers, writers, and A&R consultanta. This got the attention of Interscope Records which lead to the Universal Music Group subsidiary to ask Josh to feature as a singer, writer, and remixer for multiple artists on their roster.

In 2014 Josh decided to strike out on his own and devote himself to becoming the front singer and face of his own project. This led to the writing of his newest work, and EP titled Story of Summer. The EP features guest appearances from Spencer Ludwig of Capital Cities, Drew Hester of Foo Fighters, Matt Mcjunkin of A Perfect Circle & Pusifer and Thurz of Red Bull Sound Select.

It is executive produced by Byron Martinez and Josh himself. Other producers on the project included K-Kov (on track titled “Anna”). Story of Summer was mixed by Ryan Greene and Eric Racy and mastered by Grammy Award-winner Chris Gehringer of Sterling Sound New York, NY.

 Story of Summer circles around a tumultuous romance with a fictional character named “Anna”. It’s a first-person account of the rise and fall of a relationship. The setting of this love story takes place in the sunny beach city of  Los Angeles, California. It follows Josh through different stages of extreme euphoria to the darkest lows of meaningless one-night stands. The EP tells this story while still maintaining a sense of celebration with a high-energy party song called “Perfect Circle”. The music is a mix of live instrumentation and electronic undertone. The first single is titled “Hill Top” and features Spencer Ludwig. It’s best described as an epic upbeat anthem that’s sure to get you singing along and perfectly sets the mood for the roller coaster love affair.
