Josiah credits his dad and assistant pastor for introducing him to old-time, bluegrass and gospel singing. With roots firmly planted in his love for old-time music, Josiah quickly picked up traditional 3 finger style banjo picking. In 2013, he won his first clawhammer banjo contest at Hillbilly Days in LaFayette, TN. With a little healthy competition in his veins, he entered and won every contest around including; Uncle Dave Macon Days, Smithville Jamboree, Bluegrass on the Harpeth and Wilson County Fair.
Through his participation in competitions, Josiah picked up a few old-time dance techniques as well. He's been known to throw a few high steps into performances of The Kody Norris Show. More than a few fans have been delighted to find themselves on the recieving end of an invitation to dance when Josiah takes the stage.
