About me

MY NAME IS JOSH COTTRELL, AND I AM A 25 YEAR OLD SINGER/SONGWRITER, BASED OUT OF KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE. I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN MUSIC, LITERALLY, SINCE I WAS BORN. BOTH MY MOTHER AND FATHER HAVE MUSIC DEGREES FROM CARSON NEWMAN UNIVERSITY, AND THE WHOLE FAMILY HAS INVOLVED ITSELF IN CHRISTIAN CONTEMPORARY MUSIC, AS MY FATHER WAS THE WORSHIP LEADER AT OUR CHURCH.

I BEGAN WRITING MY OWN SONGS AND PERFORMING IN MY EARLY TEENS, BUT I JUST SERIOUSLY JUMP STARTED MY SOLO CAREER IN 2014. I DRAW ON MUSICAL INFLUENCES SUCH AS: JOHN MAYER, DAVE BARNES, RON POPE, AND ED SHEERAN. I FEEL I HAVE AN AMERICANA OR FOLKSY SOUND TO MY MUSIC, AND I LOVE TO PLAY BOTH GUITAR AND PIANO ON STAGE.

I HAVE RECENTLY RELEASED MY SOPHOMORE ALBUM, MAKING MY OWN WAY. THIS IS FOLLOWING THE MY FIRST EP, CALLED LIFE WITH YOU, RELEASED IN 2016. THE MAKING MY OWN WAY ALBUM IS VERY UNIQUE, AND YOU GET A BIT OF EVERYTHING IN IT. IT IS REALLY A REFLECTION OF MY LIFE WITH MEGAN AND JOURNEY TO WHERE I AM TODAY. OH, AND THERE’S ALSO A PIRATE SONG, WHICH IS PRETTY NEAT! A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OF MY FANS FOR LISTENING AND LOVING MY SONGS. I HOPE THIS MUSIC CONNECTS WITH YOU, AND if you like what you hear, check me out at one of my shows listed below.

THERE IS MORE FUN AND EXCITING ADVENTURES TO COME. GOD BLESS!
