Josh Taerk is a Canadian singer-songwriter and a young phenomenon that, despite having just released his first album, has already gained fans amongst rock royalty including Bruce Springsteen’s drummer Max Weinberg, calling Taerk “the most exciting new talent I have come across in years.”
While supporting The Soldiers on their August 2012 UK tour, Josh is taking the time out to play his own headline performance in Manchester’s well known venue, ‘The Kings Arms’ along with English singer-songwriters Dwayne Jones and Lizard Inc.
Dwayne Jones has been dubbed the first of many from the ‘Brit-folk’ scene that is seeping through the roots of British music. With his debut E.P. being released at the end of September, this is a great chance to hear a sneak preview of a major artist in the making.
