Emerging artist Saint Joshua explores the journey of life and love throughout his emotive new project ‘EP3’.
Saint Joshua is an emerging artist hailing from south London. His latest offering ‘EP3’ is a selection of four vulnerable releases that each takes you on a captivating journey of smooth vocals and warped percussions. Completing his trilogy of EP releases, this new project also features his lo-fi pop release “Trip.” which he dropped alongside an abstract music video.
This year has been quite the ascending journey for the artist and has seen him generate around 200,000 monthly Spotify listeners since his last EP, and receive PPL Momentum funding from PRS Foundation. Throughout this new project, Saint brings you the highs and lows of life and dating through the smoothest of ballads and cinematic sounds – it’s clear that Saint has a gift for storytelling. On his penultimate release “Where Did It All Go Wrong”, the artist teams up with Ben Allen (Izzy Bizu, Amber Run) for a piano-led production, and together construct an emotive single.
Speaking about his own experience with dating, Saint explores ‘EP3’ in depth, he says: “Dating. I suck at it and from what I’m hearing, I know I’m not the only one lol. Creating this EP allowed me to tap into emotions I display rarely because I’m ice-cold. In my last project, I shared about my reclusive journey of self-reflection. I’ve found beauty in sharing these moments and it has been a driving force to make more thought-provoking, vulnerable music. ‘EP3’ is the cultivation of my growing confidence to do what I want in my art”.
