Originally from North Carolina, singer, songwriter, and guitarist Josh Ford began playing music when he was gifted with a harmonica at 5. He later learned guitar, devloped his voice, and began writing songs.
In 2015 Josh moved to Nashville where he started out busking on corners while he developed a set list, and then began playing gigs in Tootsies, Rippy's and Honky-Tonk Central.
Josh moved to St. Augustine right before the music venues were shut down as a result of the pandemic, and once again started playing on the streets. Now, he performs as a solo act and as a duo known as Josh Ford and the Groove Bender and can frequently be heard in a number of local pubs and restaurants.
