JOSH KEMP – SINGLE REVIEW

Josh Kemp – Imaginary Friend/What A Wonderful World 
Josh Kemp - Imaginary Friend/What A Wonderful World


Release Date: Out Now

Videos are a funny thing these days as some artists don’t bother and some go full throttle for something truly creative and original. Nottingham singer-songwriter Josh Kemp has gone for something in the middle in the video accompanying his latest release ‘Imaginary Friend/What A Wonderful World’. Using self-shot (yes, sometimes using the dreaded selfie stick) from travelling around South East Asia that shows some stunning scenery, Kemp matches up a song that is from the Jack Johnson, Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner or Passenger school of uplifting guitar led pop. The second half of the song is a sparse, piano led version of the classic ‘What A Wonderful World’ as the jealousy inducing footage continues. There’s no doubting that Kemp has a smooth and pleasing voice that fits in to the Michael Buble stable of sounds and he seems like a thoroughly nice bloke so he’d probably go down a treat on the X-Factor or the Voice if they’re still running. Right now, though, I just want to book a holiday that I can’t afford. Thanks for that Josh….


Live Dates:


16th July – Rescue Rooms, Nottingham
