My service consists of a vocal/guitar/piano performance at events of all types and sizes, from weddings, to potlucks to birthday parties. I have been performing, recording music and touring professionally for 7 years and have sang at many private events. I specialize at wedding performances, and I am guaranteed to make your special moments even more memorable.

What to Expect
My specialty is creating a music environment that accommodates to any type of event. Whether the event requires mellow background music, or an exciting showcase performance filled with guitar solos and sing-alongs, I am fully able to effectively deliver both. I generally perform alone and utilize a loop pedal to layer songs together in a way that sounds as if I am performing with a band, but I do often perform with a 3-piece band as well. I am fully able to cater to your event, and I am confident in my abilities to provide you with the perfect sound for whatever your event may be.
When it comes to setting the bar high, Canadian r&b-pop artist Josh Sahunta never lets his feet touch the ground. Drawing upon his influences of John Mayer, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd, the self-taught multi-instrumentalist and singer uniquely positions himself as a songwriter with substance.
Since his humble beginnings in 2013 after releasing his first EP “Lights”, young and restless Josh Sahunta is no stranger to the level of intensity required to stand out in the music industry. Determined to consistently perform at a high-caliber, Josh somehow balanced playing shows and recording his album, while simultaneously working two jobs and studying clinical psychology full- time at the University of Alberta.
Attracting a combined social media following of 6000 strong and progressing far in competitions like CBC Searchlight and Edmonton’s Hot Factor might sway skeptics to believe it’s all ego. However, Josh’s career wins have only encouraged him to give back tenfold. Having already travelled to Uganda to teach music, he continues volunteering his talents for the betterment of the less fortunate.
Josh recently celebrated the release of his debut album “Dissonance” in late October 2017 with two music video premieres and a sold out show at The Rec Room; a 300+ crowd in his hometown of Edmonton, Alberta.
“Josh Sahunta is one of those creative prodigies who excels at absolutely everything he touches.” – BK On The Scene
Additional Booking Notes
My set up is quite simple. For most shows, if you are wishing for me to perform alone, I require only a vocal mic, a mic stand, and a speaker system to project the sound to.
I am always able to provide my own guitar amp, and all other required materials.
For band performances, I would prefer if a drum kit was present at the event, but it is not a necessity and can be provided by myself if need be.
My set list typically depends on the type of event. For most events, I perform my original songs off of my upcoming album "Dissonance", as well as covers by John Mayer and Ed Sheeran.
I am very well versed in covers however, and I am able to perform whatever it is that you may request.
Influences & Inspiration
I am influenced heavily by John Mayer and Ed Sheeran. My sound has been very frequently compared to these two artists as well as to Jason Mraz and Coldplay. I often like to describe my music as a combination of John Mayer's guitar skill and Ed Sheeran's lyricism and vocal ability.
