“Josh Panda opens his mouth and it makes you say ‘what the f*#%!!!!’ He’s a powerhouse of a singer and a front man with a unique sensibility and a laid-back vibe. Old school but hip as hell.” – the Infamous Stringdusters.
Born in North Carolina, Josh Panda spent the first 14 years of his life following in the footsteps of his gospel-singing mother. He was raised in a Southern Baptist church community where feelings were not held back. The music, the sermon, the life was all about giving into the moment. Now at age 29, having amicably left the church and the south behind him, Panda continues to weave the organic and vulnerable influence of his Carolina roots into his music. It’s rock and roll performed as it was intended: raw, emotional, and unrestrained. The music can at times be suspenseful as you watch Panda reach for a note that wasn’t rehearsed, but it’s the note he wants and the note that feels right for that moment. One fan said of this moment, “he breaks through the wall between the singer and the audience, evoking a feeling of unity, as the crowd feels they are reaching for that note with him.”
