I'm all about creating catchy melodies with strong lyrics. I am currently working with some of my heroes and favorite artists, so I will respond shortly when I can!
Josh Del was born in a small desert town on the outskirts of Palm Springs, CA. He began learning music and writing songs in the third grade. Due to the desert temperatures being so hot in the summer, Josh spent that time indoors, refining his craft. It is there he developed his genre-bending sound that is a blend between Americana, Roots Rock and Blues. In 2021 he signed a deal with Wixen Music Publishing, a company that represents the catalogs of Tom Petty, The Black Keys and Weezer. In 2020 he released a song titled Friend, which featured US Gold Medal Olympian, Laurie Hernandez; the song went on to reach #27 on the iTunes charts. Josh has created original music for documentary films such as When The Lights Went Down, starring the late Wilford Brimley. As an early adopter of live-streaming music, Josh Del has found a home for his live shows on Reddit’s Public Access Network, with streams often hitting over 100k in total viewership.

Josh really knows how to write a great hook and melody. He required very little input and was able to put something really awesome together for me.
Josh worked with me on a song that I just couldn't quite finish or put down. He spent time getting his head around what I was trying to express in the lyrics, and then helped shape the lyrics into a more focused song. He also tracked the song on guitar and sang the revised lyrics. Josh has a powerful voice that breathed new life into this project. And his communications with me throughout the process were fantastic. I will use Josh again!
Josh has a great voice! I love his sound and timing! The collaboration went smoothly. Josh responded quickly on additional requests. It was great working with him!
Absolutely worth every penny. Made my lyrics into a song far better than I was assuming, and I assumed a lot. Great guy as well! Will definitely use his help again and certainly recommend him to anyone needing a song done perfectly in a very short amount of time.
Josh has an absolutely beautiful voice and did an outstanding job on the song! Completely brought it to life! He was so kind and pleasant to work with and I’m hoping to work together again!
Josh is fantastic to work with and on top of everything else; he is one very talented guy. I am in awe of his performance and melody for my lyric. He accomplished something special. Truly someone to keep on side and not look past his bio. Mike
Josh did such a great job with our song. His voice was perfect. I would def use him again! He should easily be charging twice what his rate is.
Josh again delivered a great job. A pleasure to work with him.
Josh delivered a delicious vocal track. Positive, fast and professional. I will definitely do more projects with Josh.
Josh is a great vocalist and did a fantastic job on a fairly challenging American folk song! He was also very easy to work with. I'd love to work with him on future projects and would highly recommend him to those in search of someone who can provide a standout vocal track!
Absolutely rocked it! Thank you so much!
Josh, you did a great job! I really didn't know what to expect until the end. After the results, I would highly recommend you to anyone interested in structuring a song with complementary music.
Very professional, and surprisingly to me, the high quality of work given such a fast turnaround.
Thanks Josh, I hope to do this again sometime.
Josh was great to work with and we created something really cool out of a lyrical story..well done!
Pleasure to work with Josh! Great vocal and fast response time!
Josh is an amazing talent and a joy to work with. He'll be hearing from me again for sure! 🙂
Always love working with Josh. Crazy talented!
Josh sounded great and provided exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend him!
I'd love to make more songs with Josh
Josh is the best! Friendly, helpful and wrote clever lyrics and a great melody for me! Will definitely be using Josh musical mind in the future!
I could not have asked for a better artist to work, nor did I ever expect that the small idea that I had would be realized through a song of such depth and quality – structurally, lyrically, and melodically.
I wholeheartedly recommend his guidance to anyone who is either experienced and needs a helping hand, or someone who simply has a fragment of an idea in mind. I have no doubt you will receive the same level of dedication and attentiveness that I did and a song that you will proud of.
Interview with Josh Del
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I live in the land of melody. I believe a strong melody can make everything so much better and even go beyond the lyrical content itself; but when you have a strong melody and lyrics, you got yourself a hit. That's what I do.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I am an improver, so I usually look for parts that I think could be stronger, in order to take that song to the next level and catch more attention.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to talk to the artist first, kind of get inside their head in a way, so I can help bring their song(s) to life. I listen to the track a few times through to really try to hear the message they're trying to convey.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I run an UAD Apollo Twin Quad with an SM7B or a Telefunk condenser. Guitars are Gretsch Silver Falcon, MIJ Strat, Martin HD28 and Martin OMPCA4.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love the work of everyone from Rick Rubin to Dr. Dre to Dave Cobb. There are so many great producers out there! I really appreciate what producers do because they think about the whole picture when producing a song. Some of my favorite musicians are The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean and so many more.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am a creator, from making melodies to toplining on a song to tracking guitar. I love it all. My favorite thing is to try and get into the artist and listeners head and try to create that musical connection between them.
