Love and fear, doubts and dreams, vividness and isolation — these opposites collide and blend in 18-year-old songwriter Joshua Tazman's music, a lushly textured, mysterious, and often surprising blend of jazz and pop.
Tazman moves from disjointed, funky grooves to bittersweet ballads with ease, capturing the unsureness and vulnerability of becoming an adult with the insightful sophistication of an old soul.
Original and moving, this music will resonate with anyone both reaching for their dreams and fearing what they’ll find.
