Josiah Whitley is an Ohio born, independent singer-songwriter. He is a masterful storyteller and entertainer. He has a deceptively simple guitar playing style and a unique, yet direct vocal delivery that is attributed to his traditional roots such as Hank Williams Sr. and Bill Monroe.

Since 2016, Whitley has performed over 700 shows throughout the South, the Midwest and the West Virginia Tri-State area of the United States and written over 200 songs. He has released three full-length albums and two EP’s, one of which was recorded live on the prestigious Blue Plate Special radio show in Knoxville, TN.

Whitley has performed numerous times on television throughout the Ohio and Kentucky area and has shared the stage with the likes of Earl Thomas Conley, Josh Thompson, The Young Fables, Jason Wilber of John Prine, and country hit songwriter Rick Ferrell.

His upcoming album, entitled, “The Wandering Boy” is slated to begin production this year. Josiah is still performing in venues that are allowing music during the current covid pandemic.
