Hailing from Nottingham,Josh Wheatleystarts 2018 off strong with his first single for the year‘I Know You’ as he brews anticipation for his striking indie-pop forthcoming EP, expected to land in April 2018.

About the song, Josh comments:
“I Know You is a song about not being bound by limitations, but instead using your limitations to create something better for yourself. That’s always been my approach with songwriting.
I’ve always been fascinated by pop music so it’s an exciting change in direction for my music.”
Emerging from a thriving music scene, Josh has already caught the attention of Janice Long at Radio 2 and has a host of producers lining up to work with him.
With a self-diagnosed addiction to writing, this songwriter is composing about matters of heart and soul with a knowing empathy rarely found in someone so young.
His inﬂuences are cited as being locked ﬁrmly around artists like Death Cab For Cutie and David Gray, along with some newer artists such as Rhodes, Kyko and Rae Morris. Josh has had the opportunity to open for the likes of Fickle Friends, Anteros, Gavin James, Ady Suleiman, Fatherson and many more.
