Daughtry bassist talks about his contributions to their new album
Exclusive video interview with FBPO’s Jon Liebman
September 3, 2018
You might know Josh Paul as a founding member of the Daughtry. But the scope of his work goes far beyond his time with that Grammy-nominated rock band. A native of Los Angeles, he kicked off his music career with a bang at 18 years old playing bass with Suicidal Tendencies and its funk metal offshoot Infectious Grooves. Over the years, Paul has also worked with a diverse array of artists including Everlast, Kelly Osbourne, The Veronicas and Ashley Parker Angel. He also has his own soul-rock side project, the Bobby Church Band, and owns a songwriting and production company with his bandmate Brian Craddock, who plays rhythm guitar for Daughtry. Beyond all that, Paul also volunteers with VH1 Save the Music Foundation, which is dedicated to keeping music instruction an accessible part of children’s education.
During this year’s Summer NAMM show in Nashville, FBPO’s Jon Liebman had a chance to speak with Paul about touring, gear and the new Daughtry album, Cage To Rattle, which came out July 27.
