Joshua Belliardo is a multi-genre artist that thrives in acoustic singer/songwriting and hip-hop/R&B. Born in Northern California, he bounced between there and Washington throughout his life. Now living in Spokane at the age of 25, he is building a musical career for himself that is showing huge promise.
Joshua has been interested in all facets of music his entire life. He began rapping at 8-years-old, beat-boxing at 12, and singing at 16, not to mention he can rip the guitar too. He is a versatile artist and draws from many inspirations. Some of these include pop-punk rock’s Brendan Urie (Panic! at The Disco,) hardcore/grimey rap from Tech N9ne and Eminem, and even singer-songwriter Justin Bieber. Joshua Belliardo is a disciple of his craft and pulls from everything he can get his hands on.
His latest single, “Off My Luck,” is a perfect example of how he blends all these great influences. The song is back-boned by a sultry, Santana-esque guitar riff, and smooth-riding bassline. Joshua shows off his vocals in a vibey hook that draws you into the track. Then he goes into full chopper mode and you see that his Tech N9ne/Eminem inspiration explodes through.
Joshua Belliardo is here for the music and enjoys that creative process. He encourages artists to reach out to him for collaboration.
“I encourage artists to reach out to me to collaborate, whether or not I’m doing a verse or hooks, I’m very fair with compensation costs. My purpose is to provide listeners with music to relate to regardless of the situation or state of mind they’re in.”Joshua Belliardo
