BTSCelebs: Who is Joshua Micah?
Joshua Micah: I’m from Connecticut. I love soccer, video games, music, traveling. I’d like to think I’m a pretty normal dude.
What piqued your interest in music?
My parents would always be playing music in the house. I started playing drums on pots & pans when I was a child. They saw that I had rhythm and bought me a drum set. I taught myself drums, guitar and piano. I always wanted to be around music or making it. I used to record demos on a karaoke machine with one microphone haha. Those tapes hopefully don’t exist anywhere anymore.
Which musicians are you interested in collaborating with and why?
I am drawn to people who are willing to take risks. I want to work with good people, and I don’t necessarily mean ‘music ability’ wise – I think the foundation of creating something cool and unique starts with where the person/writer/musician is at in their life and being honest and OK with that. I have yet to collaborate with anyone on a song, but I want to in the near future if it makes sense.
Describe the dream tour you would love to be apart of.
Coldplay. I don’t even have to be on it, I’ll just open doors for Chris Martin and be happy to do it haha.
Tell us about a couple unforgettable behind-the-scenes tour moments.
My drummer and I stayed in a really cheap motel in Florida once. It smelled so bad, and felt so moist and wet in the room that we couldn’t even sleep. It was so bad. Come 5 AM.. we were so mad that we were laughing about how bad it was. We left..
I recently forgot my bag with all of my clothes in it at the House Of Blues in San Diego mid tour and had to wear the same clothes for a few days in a row. It was fun.
On a more serious note, I met a young girl at one of my shows who has the same blood disease that I had when I was her age. That was crazy.. I’ve never met anyone who has it.
If you weren’t pursuing music, what other career field would you enter?
I think I’d want to teach high school. I don’t know what I would teach..
What can we expect from you for the remainder of 2018 going into 2019?
I’ll be touring at the end of the year again. I’m working on new music that will be released before September. I have no record label so I kind of make it up as I go along. Many more weird instagram stories.
