Joshua McClain wields his cello like a post -impressionist's brush, transcending his training to produce a warm, wild sound whose unbridled expressiveness derives largely from a willingness to leave the edges frayed. Such is the basis for an eclectic, infinitely intriguing sound filled out with loose, lazy rhythms and rootsy strumming. Joshua loops his sound live on stage to create multi-layered soundscapes—exploring rock, blues, and electronic styles. While classically trained, McClain has evolved his style into an unbridled, mesmerizing sound experience—all his own. A multi-talented musician and singer/songwriter, McClain also plays the guitar, baritone ukelele and other instruments, and often works them into his sets and songs.
