Reliably informed

Introspective and sentimental, Josh Atkinson’s latest offering is a tour-de-force in dynamic songwriting that takes the listener on an emotional journey through relationship hardships. The track sees its more downhearted subject matter juxtaposed with zealous and spirited instrumentals, creating an unstable feel that mirrors the waning relationship set out in the lyrical content. 

Hailing from Middlesbrough, the emerging indie soloist is no stranger to songwriting. Although having made a name for himself as lead guitarist for Teesside-based band Nice Guy, Josh Atkinson now writes music under his own name. Taking inspiration from the likes of indie star Willie J Healy and folk group Flyte, he has constructed an upbeat, easy-listening, attention-grabbing sound that has already established a dedicated fan base.
