Known for being the dynamic front man of buzzy alternative band Magnolia Park, vocalist Joshua Roberts is inspired by a diverse mixture of genres and generations. Today he reveals another side of his musical repertoire and impressive range with upbeat new single and music video “Angel.”
From the pulsating 80’s style synths, funky guitar rhythm and reverberating bass groove, this new age R&B/pop track with an alternative twist is sure to get you on the dance floor. Roberts says: " ”Angel” has a fun Michael Jackson/The Weeknd vibe that the world has been missing. I put on my dancing shoes and my falsettos soar for everyone to hear ."
Depicting a softer side to Joshua Roberts, his solo music trades in high-energy pop-punk hooks and spirited anthems for a more mellow, heartfelt sound. Aside from his work with Magnolia Park, the vocalist and songwriter has been featured on tracks by everyone from 408 to labelmates poptropicaslutz! and plxntkid. Like many of the greats, he grew up singing in church but seeing Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” for the first time was an awakening for him to find his own voice and pursue his calling. He sees this solo venture as a personal journey to push himself not only creatively, but to also grow as an individual, stating, “It’s a whole side of me that I never talk about or share, so it’s a scary venture for sure but it’s something I feel I needed to take.”
