Josh Taerk is a Canadian singer-songwriter and a young phenom who, despite having just released his first album, has already gained fans amongst rock royalty including Bruce Springsteen’s drummer Max Weinberg, calling Taerk “the most exciting new talent I have come across in years.”
Having attracted the attentions of legendary producer Terry Brown (Rush, Blue Rodeo, Cutting Crew) Taerk set out to collaborate on what would become his remarkable debut full-length, “Never Look Back”, released in the UK in December 2011. The first single, ‘Start Again’ gained a great deal of airplay on radio stations nationwide and attracted press in major publications including Music Week, Rock N Reel, Fireworks, Classic Rock, and Guitar Magazine.
The upcoming single ‘Casie’ is set to catapult Taerk into stardom as one of the most exciting new artists on the international music scene. It’s a soulful, passionate and deeply personal ballad drawing from Taerk’s experiences with first love, that really innocent love that in spite of mutual feelings, could never be. It’s a powerful and stand out track on an album chocked-full of hits.
