Josh Hurt is probably a name few in the music industry are familiar with, but one I’m sure many will come to know soon enough.
“Why? What’s so special about Josh Hurt?”
An amazing amount of raw musical talent, potential main stream music appeal, and a voice guaranteed to melt the hearts of female fans everywhere… if his handsome features don’t do the trick first.
When I got the press kit from Josh Hurt a few days ago to review his single, “Open the Door”, I hadn’t heard of him before, either, and honestly wasn’t expecting a great deal. I’ve spoken to too many local musicians with big dreams about record deals that never seemed to come their way. But Josh is a different breed of local musician… the kind that won’t stay local forever or for long.
“Open the Door” Single by Josh Hurt
Music aficionados just need to view the video of this single to truly appreciate Josh’s talent. Though video production quality could be improved, it’s certainly a promising sign of what Josh Hurt is capable of accomplishing in future videos.
Catchy lyrics and liquid gold voice aside, the choreography in this video alone makes it worth watching.
Moves reminisce of old school Michael Jackson when he was at his peak in performance, and his performances are likely to carry to same genre-crossing appeal that made the late pop star an international sensation.
All he needs now is the backing of a record label… and with all he brings to the table how long can it be before they are begging for Josh Hurt to “Open the Door”?
