Hometown: Manchester, NH
Josh Logan: You gotta love a guy who admits that karaoke served as his entrée into the world of music. But in the case of Manchester, New Hampshire native and one-man-band Josh Logan, he had good reason-his mother was a karaoke DJ. Learning how to interpret songs while showing off his impressive pipes, the teen would eventually graduate to musical influences as varied as punk rock, Pearl Jam and Stevie Wonder.
At the tender age of 15, he fronted local band Gunshy, but when they disbanded he found himself, like many an aspiring rocker in trying circumstances, sleeping in his car.
But with struggle comes depth and, for Josh, extra musical creativity, extra soulful lyrics and extra talent.
Since then, Josh has become a popular solo artist with Josh Logan & Nobody's Business. Not only was he named "The Hardest Working Musician in Manchester" by The Hippo Press in 2003 and awarded one of the top 100 semi finalists in the Disc Makers "Independent Northeast Songwriting Competition", he's also rocked on stage with musicians like Dime-Bag Darrell, Vinnie Paul of Damage Plan, Tantric, and blues legend James Montgomery, and recorded a self-titled CD.
Wow. Karaoke never sounded so good.
