Joshua Fialkoff is an internationally touring pianist, vocalist, bassist, bandleader and arranger who draws inspiration from swing and blues legends including Fats Waller, Ray Charles, Count Basie, Otis Spann, Gene Harris and many others. Since 2006, he has been lending his smoky vocals, and rich piano stylings to dance floors, speakeasies, festivals and homes. His music features a refreshing take on traditional blues and swing music as well as modern songs, and his arrangements blend these influences in a way that is neither stale nor abstract. A dancer himself, Josh knows how to create songs that make people want to move.

 

Josh’s music has been featured at events along other such headlining artists as Ernestine Anderson, Gordon Webster, and Barbara Morrison. Dancers at events like Montreal Dance Fest, bluesSHOUT, DCLX at Glen Echo, Mobtown, BABBLE, Red Hot Blues & BBQ, Boston Independence Exchange, Beantown Camp, the Virginia Beach Exchange, Blues Blaze, Montreal Bagel and Blues, and more have swooned and swayed to his unique musical mixture of the modern and the traditional. Once you hear Josh play, you’ll revel in his refreshingly genuine sound too.
