Josh Cohen is a multi-award winning six-string bassist, composer, session musician, author and music educator (1st place winner of the NAMM 2020 PJB Solo Bass Competition, 2018 Madison Magazine Honoree for Innovation in the Arts, 2015 No Treble's Number 1 Bass Video of the year), who travels frequently throughout North America to perform and teach clinics/workshops including; Bass Boot Camp 2016 and 2019, Gruv Gear’s Clinic Series at Steve’s Music Toronto, Bass Break Live 2017 and 2020, the 2019 Waupaca Bach Festival, Solo Bass Night VI and VII and more. He was recently ranked #96 out of the world’s top bassists in the 2022 book Titans of Bass.
Josh’s solo six-string electric bass performances, which can be heard on his debut 2014 album Out of the Bassment and 2020 album Freedom, use extended techniques to create the sound of an entire band with only one instrument, and without the aid of loop pedals. When listeners hear Josh playing for the first time, they are often surprised to find out that everything they are hearing is being created by one person in real-time.
"Cohen has mastered the six-string bass, and “Frostbite” is a mesmerizing showcase of his ability to play chords, melody, bass lines and percussion all at once"
