"If your gonna do it, then just do it". Those words inspired Josh LaCount to pursue more than just a few songs twice a week at the local bar and grill.
Since his early days, Josh LaCount has had more in mind than just the everyday routine. “I was so ready for it, I was a singer and I knew it. I was a writer and I wanted to know more. I took every opportunity to learn from people with more experience and more wisdom than I”. In turn leading Josh to move from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to Nashville in 2007 to pursue his dream.
Once in Nashville, LaCount was able to dig deeper into what his goals were. Josh started writing immediately; he began performing anywhere he could, and started making as many connections as possible. "Anything I could do to further myself”.
After success with his first demo song releases, and great response from listeners of all ages, he decided to release another EP. "This is a better representation of what I am and what I want to be as a musician," says LaCount, ”I sat down and really wanted to find myself, and at the same time be able to help people."
He continued to play out as much as possible at venues such as, “The Hard Rock Café”, “The Rutledge”, “Café Coco”, “ The End” and so on. In 2011, Josh decided to spend some time outside of Nashville. LaCount began to play shows in New York City, Baltimore, New Hampshire and anywhere he could on the east coast. Josh has always loved the entertainment industry. Acting, film production, singing, dancing and all things pop culture have always been things he has wanted to explore. While in New York City, he had the opportunity to be in the upcoming 2012 Blockbuster movie, “Men in Black 3”. “It was a great experience getting to see the behind the scenes process of the film industry. “I absolutely loved being on set and meeting so many great people. It is something I definitely want to do more of down the road.”
In fall of 2011, Josh had written a lot of new material and decided it was time to hit the studio once again. He recorded three new songs as an EP in Los Angeles at 'Revolver Studio's',with producer, Mikal Blue. (Colbie Caillat, Five for Fighting, Augustana, etc) “Mikal was amazing. A great producer, songwriter and an outstanding person.” Soon after the release of his new EP, he decided it was time to take the next step. “ Los Angeles is known for being, ‘The entertainment capital of the world’ due to the presence of Hollywood, and the area’s prominent radio, television, music and movie production. So I decided that I, a pop rock mainstream artist who also wanted to explore different parts of the entertainment industry, needed to be there.”
"Right now, I just want to make music, be happy, and help people see that there is hope in a world where things are just getting crazy. My father would always tell me something Dwight L.Moody once said,'Character is what a man is in the dark'."I never want to be someone different behind closed doors than who I am to the public eye."
From catchy pop melodies, to sing able choruses, he offers a variety of guitar driven songs that anyone could relate to.
