Hold Josh Rennie-Hynes Down

Music has played a part in Josh Rennie-Hynes’ life for as long as he can remember. The Brisbane songman has been in and out of bands for a good chunk of his life, yet it was while living in Canada when things picked up speed. While living in a ski resort, Josh stumbled upon a local restaurant that hosted a music competition. Each week musicians would play off against each other, with the eventual winner landing professional recording time. No prizes for guessing how this story ends. The Americana/folk artist is now winning friends on home soil, with triple j and ABC Radio National among those spinning his tunes. Speaking of which, ‘Hold Me Down’ is his new release. The single is lifted from his album February, recorded with man-about-town, Shane Nicholson. Babushka, Ballarat – July 2.
