WANTED TO KNOW - PRESS KIT
For Josh Tenor
Featured on BBC RADIO 1Xtra
About 'Wanted to Know'
Josh's new single describes a personal experience of a stressful situation - receiving mixed signals, being led on and not understanding the true intentions of someone you are dating, leading to one having to constantly question where the other stands. Musically, this is a groove-heavy track, inspired by a lot of jazz fusion, neo soul and funk, taking inspiration from the likes of Tom Misch and Jamiroquai. The track has received great reception, most notably receiving airplay on BBC Radio 1XTRA.
About Josh Tenor
Josh is not your typical musician. He fought a tough and important battle in his teenage years: music versus academia. He comes from a flourishing artistic environment in Hackney, East London, but was raised in a household that put pressure on him to excel academically. Even with a career now, in investment management, Josh knew early on that his adoration for music was superior.
Inspired by the hip-hop, neo soul and funk music of The Soulquarians, Josh Tenor presents to us an eclectic, groove-heavy sound as a singer, songwriter and producer, being apart of London's ever growing jazz-soul scene. Being introduced to artists like D'Angelo and Tom Misch at a young age, he began his journey to create a type of music with meaning - transcribing his life experiences from diary entries to songs and pieces.
In recent times, Josh has had national exposure, with his latest single, Wanted to Know receiving its first play BBC Radio1XTRA. In July 2022 he was invited to tour with BBC Introducing, and in November of 2020, played at a BBC Live Lounge with fellow Londoner, hip hop rapper, Hyphen
