Under his professional nom de plum Goldroom, Legg’s found considerable success as a producer. But at heart, he’s a songwriter. His influences (the non-electronic ones) veer toward the likes of Tom Petty, Al Green and Ryan Adams. In his own music you can hear hints of French disco, bass lines inspired by New Order and angelic vocals layered over (as Legg describes) his “nostalgic production tones.” It’s sonically grand, sure. But at heart: real songs, with real emotions, evoking loneliness, the ocean, the West Coast.
Live, Goldroom has brought his music to life both in live form, with full live band, and in the more traditional form of DJ appearance. 2015 was a landmark year for Josh, with the first year of his High Seas tour, festival performances around North America through the summer (including LA’s FYF at sunset) and his Waiting To Ignite Tour of North America.
Having signed to Downtown Records in 2015, Goldroom is currently working on his debut album which he intends to release in the second half of 2016.
