Making his Queensland debut at River Festival 2024, Joshua Batten is a modern-day troubadour, using music as his language to connect with his audience.

Drawing on his personal experience with neurodiversity, his music provides both an escape and perspective in a complex world.

Based in Melbourne, Joshua's personal brand of Alternative Roots Rock is characterised by passionate vocals, accomplished guitar playing, layered arrangements and inspirational lyrics.

His live sets have resonated with audiences as his songs explore genuine reflections of life’s most introspective moments, humbly offered up as common and universal experiences.

Joshua has released three studio albums and has become a festival favourite, with appearances at folk and blues festivals across the country.

His latest album 'Learn To Live Again' is an eclectic mix of songs that tell a cohesive story about the challenges and acceptance of mental health and neurodiversity, set against the backdrop of COVID-19.

Learn To Live Again was followed up with the uplifting single "Coming To Our Senses" in October 2023, and led to Joshua’s first national tour, comprising headline and festival slots in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia.
