Joss’ earliest memories include mantra chanting, listening to 60’s-70’s era vinyl records, and experiencing the sounds of the world through travel. By age 9 he could play guitar and began writing and producing his own songs. Drawn in by the music of India, at 16 he studied tabla, sarode, and vocal music from Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri. His studies with them continued for the next 10 years.
