Capetonian singer-songwriter Joshua Grierson’s offerings are simple and soulful, melancholy and beautiful. His influences are some of my very favourite musicians like Bobby D and Tom Waits, so how could I not love his bluesy/folksy music.
This 25-year-old journeyman certainly has some great guitar skills and we look forward to catching him live sometime (you might have been lucky enough to see him in Jozi and Pretoria earlier this month). In the meantime you can check out one of his recent track here – it’s a live recording of Joshua performing, impromptu, at The Waiting Room above Royale on Long Street.
