Josh also added: “First of all, it’s all me. While I love working with my bandmates and creating music as a group, this solo project has given me the chance to showcase my true self. I make sure that it aligns with the way I want it to be. I take pride in the fact that I’m the driving force behind my own creative vision. I have the trait of being a control freak. When I have an idea, I want it to be executed exactly as I envisioned it, to the point where I almost feel like I’m ‘meddling’ with the different teams that work with me. But I consider myself fortunate and grateful, because they were extremely understanding and supportive of my artistic endeavors.”
