Press Excerpts

“Music is a sheltering rock for a variety of Joshua’s inner storms and his minimal production style reflects the intensity that he encounters in the dark. If you’re a fan of artists such as Rhye, Blood Orange, Moses Sumney and The Internet, then we recommend to add Joshua Worden to your playlists.”


“Joshua Worden's eclectic, atmospheric sound is reminiscent of Sufjan Stevens’ electro-minded The Age of Adz, incorporating smooth vocals with a reverbed percussive presence and electronic flourishes.”

— Obscure Sound

“The music is light in the sense that without the ethereal synth pads and reverbed drums, the frequency-modulated noise would colour these songs dark. Worden’s musical influences are plain to hear but he’s drawing upon some strong ones – there are pads suggesting Vangelis here, a dose of Washed Out’s throb there and the bold lead lines of Tangerine Dream.”

— Addicted

“Has the ability to creep up on you, but in the best way ever.”

— Indie Shuffle

“Marrow is an intimate, impossibly soulful and harmonic ballad that will bounce around your ears with slow and purposeful fury.”

— No Fillers

“The unabashedly vulnerable lyrics, subtle instrumentation and interweaving of voices slowly but surely lure you in, making for a disarming listen.”

— Indies and the Underground

“There is something about a multi-instrumentalist and producer who writes and sings their own songs that screams impressive.”

— Speaker Creatures

“Worden’s lyrical capabilities are among the strongest I’ve seen in a long time, being able to write from a personal place yet still leave it open for interpretation is a tricky task, and on Always This he did it flawlessly.”


“Soulful and ethereal, Joshua Worden's music is polished with touches of quiet storm elements.”

— Examiner

“It only takes 20 seconds of Always This to know that you’re in for a treat.”

— Under the Gun

“Joshua Worden delivers an air of road worn smoothness to an otherwise new sound.”

— Copasetix
