Southern California native Joshua Russell is a multi-instrumentalist, session drummer, and songwriter. Having started on piano at the age of 3, Russell has a firm and structured musical history. During primary education the trumpet and flute were learned, before ardently diving into percussion. Within the Junior year of high school, the drummer earned a 3rd Place SCSBOA championship with the Lancaster High School Marching Band as well as taking fourth in Percussion overall, despite having no instructor at the time. Continuing with instruction from Tony Capko's School of Drumming and session artist Noah Hecht, Joshua began instructing professionally out of Mel booker Music in 2017 with 2 years experience teaching basics privately.
Pursuing the art in youth had brought forth plenty of creative ventures and outlets including planning live shows and concerts, theatrical productions, as well as record engineering and production. The artist also has a history doing well in teaching those with symptoms of autism and attention deficit disorder. Joshua is a Type 1 Diabectic and firmly believes that playing instruments is a healthy source of exercise. In 2018, the artist had begun frequenting and playing music in Washington state, eventually moving to Seattle the following year to further musical endeavors. Having performed in live settings, concerts, and shows for over a decade, Joshua takes patience and confidence with each and every forthcoming project.
