Josiah Hawley is your modern-day James Dean -complete with old-fashioned charm and a magnetic persona. Josiah was born and bred in Fort Smith, Arkansas, where small town family values and a persistent work ethic run strong. Leaving everything he knew in his early twenties, he packed little more than his guitar and a dream for Nashville, and eventually, the big city –Los Angeles.
Since then, the singer/ songwriter/ model has become what some say a “burgeoning bad boy." Mentored by Usher on The Voice, Josiah captured hearts worldwide with his stripped-down musical performances and classic good looks.
With the attention he received from his work on The Voice, Josiah’s few hundred followers on Twitter and Instagram skyrocketed to more than 82K+ followers on Instagram and 60K+ on Twitter in a matter of weeks. Josiah's YouTube videos have hit over 2.2M+ overall plays and his incredibly loyal fan base continues to grow.
USA Today says that Josiah “Matches his good looks with a bevy of vocal talent and a burgeoning bad-boy image.” And The Today Show noted that Josiah is a “talented pop-rocker.” Josiah has made appearances on a variety of TV shows: The Today Show, ENews, Access Hollywood, New York Live, MTV News, OWN and Extra to date.
Josiah currently lives in LA and is working on releasing his first EP since The Voice.
Since his appearance on The Voice, Josiah has released five YouTube music videos featuring original songs that have gained traction with his audience and nurtured his loyal following. Josiah is collaborating on new work with well-known songwriters in the industry, including writers for RedOne, Jeremih, Demi Lovato, Lupe Fiasco and Big Time Rush.
