singer - piano player - sound engineer
Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Josy grew up in a musical environment. At the age of 5 she started playing piano and was classically trained for more than 10 years. She attended a high school with main focus on music, where she started to take vocal lessons and performed vocals and piano on a regular basis. Influenced by top singers like Celine Dion and Whitney Houston, Josy began experimenting in writing her own piano ballads.
After school she attended the sound engineering program at SAE college in Vienna where she was introduced to the technical methods of audio recording and music production. This enabled her to record, mix and produce her own songs which led to her interest in creating music for film and TV with orchestral samples.
Before she would go down the road to become a film composer, Josy joined a Celtic rock band named "Celtica-Pipes Rock" in 2009. With the group she played keyboards, vocals, percussion and performed a unique fire spinning show. They toured all over Europe, the US and Canada playing in front of thousands of people at big festivals and club gigs alike. After 5 years of great experiences, Josy decided it was time to do her own thing.
In July 2014 she released her first solo album "What Lies Ahead", which consists of 10 singer-songwriter ballads and 2 orchestral film music pieces. The project opened up new doors for her and at the beginning of 2015 she fulfilled her dream and moved to Los Angeles.
Film music has always been a great part of Josy's life. At a young age, she started playing famous film music themes from Titanic, Gladiator and Star Wars on the piano and dreamt of writing music for big films. Once Josy arrived in Hollywood, she enrolled in the UCLA film scoring program. In addition to learning the industry's standards of film scoring, the program led her to an internship at Hans Zimmer's studio Remote Control Productions. After the internship Josy got offered a job and has been working there ever since.
Josy writes music for film, TV, and video games; she has scored some private projects and written music for commercials and music libraries. Her music is currently available to be licensed - for more info and inquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message via the contact link.
On weekends, Josy still enjoys to perform. She plays piano at the famous Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Downtown LA. Her versatile repertoire includes film music, classical, original songs, and all-time pop favorites.
Josy is currently based in Santa Monica, CA.
