After years of writing, performing, producing, and directing, Joshua Long is now ready to bring his first solo Album into the light of day. All God’s Children is a spiritual testament to where Josh has been and where he is headed.

Afterwards he attended the University of the Arts where received his music degree in Jazz performance. In the past 15 years Josh has served in many churches in Maryland, Philadelphia, and New Jersey. He was a member of Hiphop Collective Sela, and Rock fusion band Apollo Sun. He has worked with Hip-Hop Artist Gilbere Forte and Folk/soul singer Bob Sima. He currently serves as Director of Contemporary Music at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis, Music Director of AWAKE Ministries, and as choir director for Saint Luke’s United Methodist Church in Reisterstown, Md.
Catchy hooks and passionate melodies attributed to inspirational lyrics and messages of the divine some up (link hidden) music. The music is self-produced, some records such as Lost What’s Wrong and Blessed Are Those Josh plays and sings every part. Other songs like Mystery and Thank You have been blessed with the musical aide of friends and even family. Josh continues to write today and hopes to release more and more music to the world. He hopes to offer churches of liberal and open-minded beliefs more contemporary and diverse songs to worship to. Long wishes to reach the many millennials who may not attend a church but find the divine through all aspects of life. All God’s Children is just the beginning of a legacy of song and inspiration for a world that is expanding its human and spiritual consciousness.
