Trick with Your Heart I'm Learning to Do
Joshua's debut album, The Trick With Your Heart I'm Learning To Do, was produced by David Baxter and features guest appearances by Serena Ryder, Justin Rutledge, Jack Marks, Greg Cockerill, John Dinsmore, Shawn Creamer, and Dustin Bentall as well as Joshua's long-time band David Baxter (guitar), Burke Carroll (pedal steel), Devon Henderson (bass), and Joshua Van Tassel (drums). Piecing together every dollar he could, Joshua came up with enough money to record his debut album and if you ask him, it couldn't have come soon enough; 'I've known I wanted to be a musician since I was ten years old,' he says, 'Everything I saved up over the years has been preparing for the making of this album.' 'As a songwriter, Joshua is one of the bright lights on the Canadian scene, and has one of the best new voices I've heard. Both sonically and lyrically, his album towers above any first attempt I've heard recently. I'm going to wager that Joshua will be around for quite some time.' - Justin Rutledge [The Trick With Your Heart I'm Learning To Do] is the 21-year old's debut disc and it reveals an artist of strong potential. He has a relaxed, melodic vocal style and a deft touch as a lyricist. Boosted by Ryder's harmony vocals, jaunty opening cut 'Dance With You' is tailor-made for radio play. This is a highly promising beginning.' - Exclaim!
