Josie is an artist from Queensland who has just released her first single, ‘Down Here’, although she’s already had a long involvement in country music, attended the Junior Academy of Country Music, as a finalist in the 2019 Gympie Music Muster talent search and reaching the Top 10 of the 2022 Groundwater KIX Start competition.
Says Josie of creating ‘Down Here’, ‘I took to streaming services to have a geez at what the top country artists are singing about. I noticed a trend amongst them. They all seemed to have an insatiable thirst for singing about American places and themes. I wanted to show the world that I’m more than just a mimic. I’m a genuine storyteller who can achieve that coveted mainstream sound without having to pretend I’ve got a deep-rooted connection to every nook and cranny of the good ol’ U.S. of A.’
Josie has created an infectious song that depicts many aspects of the wide brown land, and she was also great to talk to in our recent interview – thoroughly interesting and entertaining.
