Comfortable in virtually any musical environment Josh Fuhrmeister brings a unique skill set of creativity and flair to every performance and recording session. Fresh off the back of a North America tour playing guitar for The Paper Kites, he has performed extensively around the world with other artists such as Greta Salome (Sigur Ros, Eurovision), Ian Cooper (Tommy Emmanuel, James Morrison), Kym Purling (Nat Cole, Broadway) and Vish Vadivelu (Evermore, Shannon Noll). He has shared stages as large as Osheaga MusicFestival in Montreal and the Myer Music Bowl with artists such as Radiohead, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Duran Duran, The Killers, Beirut, Ray LaMontagne, Ryan Adams, Haim, Death Cab For Cutie, Colin Hay, The Cat Empire, Rammstein, James Reyne and Mark Seymour.
Not solely a guitarist/vocalist, Josh is often found on stage with a drum kit, piano, banjo or bass guitar in hand. This versatility has only served to broaden his creativity and ability as a music producer and composer. With several commercially released album and film composition credits to his name the scope of his musicianship is as wide as it is deep.
Currently Josh can be seen on stage in Melbourne, Australia with performance poet Joel McKerrow, singer/songwriter Jeff Tynan and three-piece New Orleans-funk outfit The Crave while working on records and compositions out of his St.Kilda studio.
