Josh Hoyer @ James Arthur Vineyards
June 18 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
International recording artist, Josh Hoyer, has been performing nearly all his life. Music has always been his haven from a crazy world; a place of freedom and pure expression. A Lincoln, Nebraska native, Hoyer took every music class he was able to in public school and also snag in church choirs during his childhood. First starting on saxophone, he eventually moved to playing piano in his mid-20s, inspired to write music and lead bands of his own.
Versatility as a writer is one of his strong suits, blending all the styles in his deep catalog of influences. From Soul to Country, Funk to Doo-Wop, Rock to Pop, the one thing that holds it all together is the strong songwriting and undeniably Soulful voice.
The songs come directly from Hoyer’s life and have a realness that begs the listener to step into his world. The songs are about family, societal woes, love, and loss. Hoyer aims to inspire and encourage through his music, and more than anything wants to relate the idea that no one is ever alone in their suffering. If you can sum up his music and performance in a word: genuine. That is why Hoyer is most aptly referred to as a Soul artist. He is real. The music is real. Not flashy, not fluffy, not fabricated. Honest and real.
