Why we love JOSHUA MELTZER here at GMP:
After listening to Joshua’s submission, we simply couldn’t get his songs out of our heads. We were captivated by the beautiful imagery created by his lyrics, and found ourselves unable to stop humming the chorus of “Gypsy Moon” [which you can hear below] while we went about the rest of our day. Listening to Joshua’s music propels you on a journey into his soul and his world. He is the kind of songwriter who writes with a sense of intimacy that envelops the listener within his story, and keeps you rapt as the tales unfold.

Joshua’s impressive bio demonstrated to us we are most definitely not alone in thinking that he is an incredibly talented singer/songwriter. He is clearly working his tail off to get his music out there and heard, and even with his successes that is no easy task. Our goal is that GMP will help him be recognized and loved by an even bigger and broader audience.

Why you need to know about JOSHUA:
Joshua’s music has a magnetic quality that words can’t fully describe, and can only be best appreciated by hearing it yourself. So lose yourself now in “Gypsy Moon”, and check back again to the GMP site soon, to hear what happens when Joshua comes to work here at Star Hill Studio. I predict there will be magic.
