Josh Lief Blues Band
osh Lief is singer-songwriter, guitar player based in Richmond, VA. Josh’s album “Redemption” was released in April, 2017. The album, recorded at Montrose Recording in Richmond, VA, contains all original songs, and is a mixture of Americana, Country-Rock and Blues and is available on CDBaby.com, Apple Music, Spotify, and other download services as well as in RVA at Plan 9 records.
Josh started playing guitar when he was 6 years old. His style is a mixture of the all the music he loved as young musician. His influences started with his big three of Hendrix, Clapton, and Led Zeppelin. He also learned a lot of country style lead guitar from being a huge Southern Rock fan as well as the classic country of Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. He is also a huge fan of Neil Young, the Allman Brothers and the Grateful Dead and they can be heard in his lead playing and writing. He can play a wide range of styles from rock to blues to country to folk and in his solo acoustic shows does just that.
He is currently working on a new album called “James River Blues” also recorded at Montrose Recording in Richmond, VA. The Josh Lief Blues Band includes Josh and the rhythm section of Debbie Flood on drums and Tommy Dacat on bass. Both are veterans of several well known Richmond bands and Deb has toured extensively as well as recorded with many artists. Deb and Tommy are a great team and bring a solid yet exciting rhythm section to the upcoming album and Josh’s live performances. The new album should be out in the summer of 2018.
