ABOUT

I'm a composer, audio engineer, and musician from Sherman, TX seeking other musicians who are serious about what they do and what they create. I have experience in many fields, despite only having performed in front of a live audience on a few occasions - the reason being that It's difficult for me to find musicians I'm compatible with in this area. Everyone just wants to play country music at a basic skill level, which I find immensely annoying. I have an assortment of unfinished projects in different genres posted on my b a n d c a m p, which you can find by looking me up by name: Joshua Steward. Feel free to browse, but be aware that I focus on jazz-type compositions here instead of my true passion, which is everything metal. Despite this, I can compose in any genre one might desire; I just need some extra influence to get things rolling!
