When you think about hotbeds of soul music, you probably don’t think about Sydney, Australia. But Josué intends to change that perception. As the leader of the Sydney based soul collective, The SoulBenders, Josué has been electrifying audiences with killer grooves and explosive live shows.
Growing up, Josué was exposed to music all the time. His siblings were talented musicians in their own right and they influenced Josué to pick up the guitar and learn to play. After a few years on diligent study and dedication to developing an ear for music, Josué decided to pursue music as career. This proved to be the right choice. Over the years, the talented singer, songwriter, musician, and producer has shared the stage with some of Sydney’s high ranking musical entertainers including Mike Champion, Doug Williams and Keyboardist Sam McNally.
While his sound is steeped in soul, Josué effortlessly combines elements of jazz, R&B, and funk into something that is totally unique. You can hear more of his beautiful music when he releases his debut EP, Bad News, in July.
