Comparisons to The Grateful Dead, The Band, Bob Dylan, Patsy Cline, Kris Kristofferson for 25-Year Old Phenom

Joshua Panda's Americana/Soul/Country/Zydeco/Folk Album is a Career-Shaping Winner

“Panda's versatility and depth as a performer is matched by raw musical talent"

25-year old phenom Joshua Panda finds himself earning growing acclaim for his eponymous Americana/Soul/Country/Folk CD, with critics comparing his sound to such seminal artists as The Grateful Dead, The Band, Bob Dylan, Patsy Cline and Kris Kristofferson, among others. Listen to samples from the Pandarue Productions release, here: http://press.joshuapanda.com/

BlogCritics praised: “Panda's originals run the gamut from country and Cajun to gospel and rock, from raucous, story ballad and quiet lament to the powerful anthem. His joy and his passion are infectious, whether he is romping through some rocking zydeco to a bouncing piano and accordion background or softly lamenting life's roadblocks to a sweetly punctuating guitar..."

Panda recently performed on CBS-TV in Charlotte, and the terrific clip may be seen here.

Panda's band includes musicians from Vermont, Montreal, New York and North Carolina, and features guitar, mandolin/piano, accordion, drums, electric guitar, pedal steel, and upright bass. Panda's regular musicians include Lowell Thompson, Brett Lanier, Brian Axford, Ed Grasmeyer, Dan Davine, and Pete Weiss.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
