“I have worked with Josh on numerous occasions and engineered the front of house mix for him in various settings and locations.
Josh uniquely combines being good-humoured with being thoroughly professional, approachable, polite and easy to talk to – and best of all, I have found him to be ideal to work with.
Josh’s love for playing the drums is evident in his desire to learn and the passion in which he plays, and he is without doubt the best young drummer I have seen and heard, showing the unique ability to effortlessly adapt and vary his playing style to suit the music, setting and mood – consistently playing the drums with energy, passion and flair.
Watching Josh continuously improve is a demonstration of how dedicated he is in learning different styles of drumming and to his practice and profession.”
- Adam Shepherd (Sound engineer)
“Working with Josh was a great experience. He worked hard at preparing and remained focused throughout the session. Josh is a rare combination of talent and professionalism. I’d definitely use him again.”
- Daniel Stirling (Singer / songwriter)
“Josh is a great drummer. I have known him for most of his life. He joined me in the worship group at our church many years ago and I have seen him progress from beginner to a professional standard. It is talent and sheer hard dedication to his love of drumming which has got him there. He is consistent in the quality of his work. Josh always arrives at a practice ahead of time. He is a pleasure to work with, always showing a positive attitude. I have worked live with him many times and also done some recording. During a recording session of four songs, Josh’s disciplined preparation and professional approach ensured we got the performance required after only a few takes.”
- Dave Wilkin (Worship leader – Union Road Community Church, Oswaldtwistle)
“Josh’s skills with drumming are phenomenal. It was with him that I discovered the hidden gem of using punk double kick drumming with heavy metal fusion to lead children in worship. Without his creativity, that kind of thing would never have happened.”
- Andrew Gray (Children’s worship leader and schools worker for Scripture Union)
“Josh has an intuitive feel for rhythm. If you’re looking for a good drummer – look no further. His creativity, solid timing and musical adaptability cause him to stand head and shoulders above the rest.”
- Neil Haydock (Music composer and producer – www.haydockmusic.com)
“Drumming wise… Josh Potts is professional, creative, team player, really easy to work with and a solid rhythm section all rolled into one!!!”
- Paul Saxon (Worship leader, singer / songwriter)
“Talented musicians like Josh often have a certain temperament which makes them hard to work with, thankfully Josh doesn’t exhibit this mentality. His patient willingness to collaborate and adapt for the benefit of a quality musical outcome shines through in his contribution to a performance. Great musicians not only have great skill on their instrument, but they are also people who are creatively malleable – Josh is a great musician.”
- Rich Jones (Worship leader, singer / songwriter)
“I have known Josh for a number of year and he was a pleasure to work with in the worship team. I watched him grow from a young person, just starting drumming to a very inspired and confident man, technically skilled and developing freedom as the spirit inspired him.”
- Dawn Preston (Worship leader)
“Josh is one of the most passionate and gifted drummers I’ve worked with. He’s an asset to the band and to our organisation.”
- Nathan Shepherd (Music and events director – Vision – www.thevisionwebsite.com)
“Keeping time is the beginning of what you want in a drummer… But then you need someone who serves the song, not himself; someone who has energy and creativity, who can adapt to other band members and tastes in music. Josh does all this and his playing makes you smile.
- Alison Loring (Worship Leader)
