Upbeat. Dynamic. Mesmerizing. Those three words perfectly describe the 25 year old pop violinist from southern California. Classically trained since the age of four, Josh is now taking on the world of pop music.
Josh blends the styles of classical and contemporary in an original manner, ultimately making his music accessible to the mainstream. He is influenced by artists such as Itzhak Perlman, Joshua Bell and Vanessa Mae. His favorite composers consist of Bach, Mozart and Vivaldi.
He started out his career as a street performer in Los Angeles, CA and has honed his skills as a musician and as an entertainer. From his street performances he has caught the attention of multi-platinum producer Brian Kennedy and was incorporated into a recording session for pop singer Chris Brown. Josh has also performed live with the Los Angeles Ballet Academy twice and at Warner Bros. Studios for the 2009 L.A. Screenings Week.
Recently Josh was hired to shoot a commercial for the Turner 2010 NBA ALL-Star Game Tease where he played a violin street performer in the LA Metro because he reminded the casting directors of Joshua Bell.
Vietti was also featured on the KTLA Morning Show on March 19, 2010, at the Dodger Stadium, where he performed his arrangement of 'Canon in D' in commemoration for the 2010 Honda Los Angeles Marathon.
He has also performed at numerous festivals and events. In 2007 he performed at the Latin Festival in Downtown LA (sponsored by La Curacao and Univision). In 2008 he was a guest artist at the LA Korean Festival. In 2009 Josh performed at the Italian-American Festival at UCLA and this year Josh had the privilege of performing at the 2010 HONDA LA MARATHON presented by K-Swiss!
Most importantly, Josh has a new album out! He re-recorded his most popular songs and added some new great ones at KnockOut Studios in North Hollywood, CA and had it professionally engineered/mixed by the very talented Myke Groov. It also features amazing photography taken on the streets of Hollywood by Richard Fusillo and has exceptional CD design by Darla Marie Designs.
So sit, stand or dance and completely lose yourself in a musical experience that is destined to make history!
