Josh DiStefano grew up in Los Angeles, and started playing the piano at age 14.
Developing a love for blues and rock, he moved to Boston to study at the Berklee college of music. While there Josh was introduced to jazz and studied many forms of composition. In 1996 he graduated from Berklee with a degree in Film Scoring.
Shortly afterwards Josh enlisted in the US Army band as a piano player. He has been stationed in Alaska, Georgia, Texas, Kentucky and is currently living in Belgium as a member of the NATO Band. He has also completed two combat tours in Iraq, for which he was awarded The Bronze Star.
In 2008 Josh realsed his first CD as a leader "Baghdad Blues". It features all original compositions and tells the story of a yearlong deployment through music.
He has been featured on Television and Radio, has given clinics at numerous colleges and high schools, and has been lucky enough to perform with Don Braden, Charlie Daniels, The Drew Carey Comedy Tour, and the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders.
Josh and his wife, Carrie, are enjoying Europe, and spend most of their time wrangling their one year old daughter, Clara, and occasionally sight seeing.
