Josh Hyde is an American musician noted for blues, soul, and jazz music.

Early Life

Josh Hyde was born March 4th, 1969 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As a child, Hyde grew up in New Orleans, and was exposed to the city's musical roots. His father bought him his first guitar when he was 10, and by 11, he had written his first sound. When he was 15, Hyde began to play blues music with his guitar at a local club, Tabby's Blues Box. It was there that he was connected with influences like Tabby Thomas, Silas Hogan, and Henry Gray.[1][2]


A founding musician of the Little Walter Music Festival, he helped kick off this festival with Grammy-nominated guitarist Buddy Flett in 2015. The festival is held annually and Josh returns every year to commemorate Little Walter's musical integrity.[3][4] [5]

40th Annual Red River Revel Music Festival [6] is among the many festivals Hyde played during his career.

In 2016, Hyde recorded "The Call of the Night" at the famous Dockside Studio in Maurice, LA. It was there that he worked with Joe McMahan, a Nashville producer who has worked with Webb Wilder, Kevin Gordon, and a guitarist for Lee Ann Womack. The record was critically acclaimed in both the US and UK. Sonny Landreth and Buddy Flett collaborated with Hyde on the record.[7][8]
