Joshua Hyslop 'Cold Wind' EP stream

by Michael Donley

now available on itunes
It’s always cool to see artists that have performed at the cafe continuing to develop their artistic craft and growing an audience. Abbotsford singer/songwriter Joshua Hyslop has certainly done that in the last year since he played the Streaming Cafe.

I first discovered Joshua well looking over some clips from Vancouver Island based music video site Naked Jams (be sure to check them out!) .  His live performances set in a bookstore, a back alley and a local diner, the honest delivery in Josh's voice accompanied by his old whole ridden guitar made for some really cool moments.

Joshua has been keeping great company lately, working with Nettwerk Records who’s roster includes music greats Sarah McLachlan, William Fitzsimmons (who just performed at the cafe a couple months ago) and Ron Sexsmith to name just a few.
 After much anticipation he has just released his debut EP Cold Wind with Nettwerk and they've arranged for an exclusive stream. Have a listen to the six-song EP via sound cloud.

Great things are ahead for Joshua as he continues to emerge as a new fresh Canadian talent.

Here's a clip from Joshua Hyslop's performance at the cafe back in Sept 2010.
