New Hampshire native, Joshua Hall started playing guitar at age 14. His relationship with music has found him embracing, composing, and performing in an unusually wide variety of musical styles. Classically trained, he earned his bachelors degree in music education from Ithaca College. In 1997, he began teaching music at the Frances C. Richmond Middle School in Hanover, NH, where he continues to direct several choruses, jazz and concert bands, general music, and the guitar program.
Joshua enjoys raising a small free-range flock of chickens and a goose, named Juliette, who often falls asleep while he plays guitar. His early morning walks in the woods of his Cornish, New Hampshire home with his dog, Tomo, while being followed by his cat, Pickles, affirms his commitment to the natural world. He married his high school sweetheart, Angie, and regularly accompanies her Yoga classes and Kirtans at various yoga studios in the area. His two daughters, Isabella and Ellessia, provided constant inspiration and reminders of how free we are as children. Whether he is writing music for solo guitar, Kirtan performances or Extraneous Solutions, Joshua draws inspiration from all areas of his life.
