Modern pop from Wicklow
Following his smash hit debut single We Should Run which saw Ireland native Josh Gray skyrocket to the top of the charts, Gray continues making sizeable and impressionable waves on the pop scene. Though only 21, Josh Gray’s career in pop music is well- founded and he utilises this tenacious background in the industry to his advantage, resulting in flawlessly crafted pop songs befitting of his own musical influences such as OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5.
Josh Gray’s ability to marry groovy melodic riffs to his high falsetto makes his tracks uniquely energetic, and this is particularly evident on his second single Cut Loose, where an explosive and irresistibly catchy chorus booms out from an otherwise feel-good pop anthem. Cut Loose grabbed the attention of the playlist curators upon its release, and the track has been playlisted across several curated playlists on the platform.
Both We Should Run and Cut Loose serve as masterclasses in pop music-making, and Gray has ambitions to follow the course they’ve chartered with future projects.
