"Background music worth paying attention to"

Joshua T. Merello is a national touring classical guitarist, visual artist, and writer from Kansas City.

Joshua's music is purely instrumental, allowing listeners to focus inward, on their own minds, amidst the constant noise of the external world. Utilizing only his classical guitar and loop pedal, he blends neo-classical, Latin, and blues stylings into one experience. His ear for melody gives each song a unique voice.

Joshua also plays guitar and bass for local acts in the Kansas City area, and works with Alzheimer’s residents, focusing on music therapy.

What others have said of Joshua's music:
