Info for Summerland
The title of the EP refers to “both a place and a timeframe,” says Josh. Summerland is “a real and physical destination but also a more abstract window of time and season of feelings. In my mind it’s a small town carnival – you go to escape and be happy but if you start to look closer you can see all the grit and pain. Summerland is optimism just barely holding off a breakdown.”
Joshua Speers is the Delaware-raised son of an English teacher from a family of ministers. A hopeless romantic, he studied poetry and pottery at Skidmore College, traversing the Northeast with a small library on his dashboard while working an assortment of odd jobs as a carpenter, busboy, an assistant to a governor, a motorcycle apprentice, a nanny, and baseball coach before moving to Los Angeles to pursue music. There, he worked sessions and found kindred spirits in the likes of Tommy English (Kacey Musgraves) and the producer Lars Stalfors (St. Vincent, Cold War Kids). He calls Bruce Springsteen and Carly Rae Jepsen his “musical parents,” and his major label debut Human Now built a guitar-heavy, 80s-inspired sound that centered his voice.
is your quintessential All-American hero. A blue-collar rock songwriter, a motorcyclist, a lover of baseball, an extremely well-read guy. One of four brothers from Delaware, Josh moved out to Los Angeles in 2018 to take a real shot at a music career, where he wound up finding kindred spirits in the likes of songwriter Tommy English (Kacey Musgraves) and producer Lars Stalfors (St. Vincent, Cold War Kids), who largely wrote and produced Human Now with Speers, as well as Jon Castelli (Khalid, Summer Walker x Drake) who mixed several songs on the EP. The result is an inspired search for honesty, full of driving '80s guitar riffs, steady drums and perfectly described by Speers as the lovechild of Bruce Springsteen and Carly Rae Jepsen.
