Josh was born and raised in DC, and likes to hang out with his friends and climb things in his spare time. He plays guitar, drums, bass, and some vocals in The Vico Cycle, a DC area band. He also runs an open mic 3rd Fridays of the month in Silver Spring. He is weird. Normal is boring anyway.

Thank you for your feedback on “Josh Weed”. I appreciate you taking time to understand my lyrical style. It really showed in your performance on our collab!
Thanks so much for the collaboration. Your work on it was awesome!
Thank you very much for the comments on my collab track with Colleen! Was great working with her, got a great vibe off of her ideas and the arrangement fell into place quickly then. Glad you liked it!
Hey, so glad to hear from you again! I've love to collab again! My email's in my profile, so shoot me an email if you've got time!
Thanks for your lovely comments on cause it’s been 9 years Dad, glad the song touched you, it is an emotional one!
Looks like we got paired up for random collab. Would love to discuss my lyric ideas with you. Would you rather do it by soundboard or over email? (My username at mac dot com) Let me know what style of song you'd like and if there is a certain topic that speaks to you...Colleen
Thank you for your wonderful comments on "Start Again". It's wonderful to have words paint such a picture for someone.
I only recently starting playing the shaker, I play cajon for a friend who asked me to do shaker on one song. I tend to shy away from adding percussion on my stuff. I'm trying to push myself a little harder this year.
I've tried that in Audacity and it always sounds too unnatural for me to use, so I don't. 😀
I don't have the plugins or knowhow to do pitchshifting, so every note you hear me sing I'm singing in that register, unless I'm doing the Troll voice, in which case that's my singing voice at 75% speed. But the Troll is still stuck over at 50/90 last I checked. Unless I set him free...
Thanks for listening to Greenstone Carver!
Thank you for your kind words on "Join Me in Death", I was gifted some wonderful lyrics to work with.
I would like to thank you very much for your kind and thoughtful words...
Thanks for you great feedback.. really appreciate it..I was trying to imagine the breakdown of suburban life when there is no more water being piped to the homes because of high heat and drought (South Africa are facing that now) and gas is short..
I used a technique for writing by taking two books and then using a combination of the first line from one and the last from the other to get the juices flowing.
Let me know if you want to collab.. cheers
Hi Josh! I look forward to your tunes, and hopefully some DMV get-togethers.
Hey, glad you're back for another FAWM! I really appreciate the thoughtful comments on a few of my song lyrics last year, so thank you. I really like rock, but don't have an electric guitar or the expertise to execute a full song in the genre on my own. Would you be willing to collab sometime this FAWM?
Hi, Josh, if you see this message, could you stop by my page real quick and scroll down to see the note that I left for my collaborators from last year who wrote music for "The Road is So Long?" Also, if it's ok... could I possibly get a copy of the mp3 for your version if you still have it?
Good to see you back!! Looking forward to hearing more from you... 😀
