Emporium Favrouite Musician Josh Phillips launches album to the world

Local artist and musician Josh Phillips will be launching what is set to be his biggest achievement since he started his music career 3 years ago. This Friday 4 September at City Hive surrounded by friends, family and fans, Josh will be launching his new 6 track self-titled debut EP.

You might know him as half of the local duo Me & the Missus but armed with an acoustic guitar, Josh is a popular local favourite in his own right. Using loop beats, riffs and vocals to create a "tasty" brand of acoustic indie pop, inspired by sing-along anthems from artists such as Ed Sheeran, The Lumineers and Mumford & Sons, Josh is a regular on the live music scene around Geraldton as a solo act, and as part of a duet with his wife Janelle Phillips as Me & The Missus.

“I'm very excited to release my first studio EP, it's a massive step forward from all my home produced tracks in the past.” says Josh.  “Previous bands I've been a part of include: Me & the Missus, Echo Embassy, Walter (who made the finals of the Next Big Thing competition) and supported acts such as Dead Letter Circus and  British India.”

Featuring six songs, Josh is aiming to reach a global audience with his album being released on Google Play, iTunes and Spotify.  You can even get your hands on an old style hard copy CD through Josh’s website -

“My favourite songs have always been the ones that people can't help but sing along with, so I've tried to write songs that have simple, catchy melodies with lyrics that people can relate to.”

Josh has been a staple of the Geraldton music scene for over three years now, averaging at least one gig per week. Keeping it local, Josh has used his connections with other local producers to complete his album.

“It was a bonus to be able to do everything in Geraldton, and Aaron Wilcox at Epic Sound Studio has been great to work with. Right from the beginning you could tell he was invested in the project.” Said Phillips
