Josh began his professional career playing acoustic sets in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood and within a year he was headlining shows at various clubs across the city. After breaking ranks with jam-informed blues/pop/rock trio Mechanical Animals, Bryant is embracing his inner singer/songwriter with aplomb. He has since headlined the Chicago Triathlon Finish Festival, with over 10,000 athletes in attendance, and can be found hosting the weekly Open Mic on Wednesday nights at The Elbo Room.
