About

 

Classically trained throughout his younger years, Josh studied jazz piano and improvisation at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

After completing his studies, he opened the Josh Cohen School of Music - a boutique music school specialising in piano, guitar and vocal tuition.

In 2010, Josh converted Melbourne's historic Old Melbourne Gaol into a live concert venue dedicated to the music of Radiohead. The event featured a 7-piece band, string quartet and 13-piece choir, over three levels of jail cells.

Josh performed 'The Journey' at the Melbourne Recital Centre in 2013, which encapsulated a broad range of styles and musicians. He also launched his debut solo piano album 'Station Street' at the same venue in November, 2014.

In 2016, Josh is recording a full-length album with long-term friends Dave Havea, Andy Reed and Pat Moevasa-Sili.

Station Street (Solo Piano Album)

by Josh Cohen

The creative process is a funny one. Being a pianist, like a lot of other musicians and artists, demands a great deal of time contemplating your art form, often in a solitary environment. It has taken an abundance of patience, maturity and acceptance to release these private moments from my journey into a not-so-private world. A majority of these compositions were written over the past two years, with some works dating back as far as 2006. Some pieces were composed in an hour, whilst others have been fine-tuned for years. I hope you enjoy listening to these tracks, as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Released 28 November, 2014. 

Recorded in September, 2014 at the Josh Cohen School of Music in Melbourne, Australia. 

Engineered, mixed and mastered by Alistair McLean. Artwork by Steph Hughes. Design by Michael Longton.
