Inspired by his Grandfather, who was also a drummer, Massachusetts native Joshua Fleischmann first began playing drums at the age of 13.  In 2005, he relocated to New York City and joined Israel Nash’s band, contributing to a series of records that garnered international acclaim everywhere from NPR and No Depression to Uncut and Mojo. He’s toured extensively across North America and Europe with Nash, and performs frequently with other artists including Anthony D’Amato and Shilpa Ray. When he’s not on the road or in the studio, you can find Fleischmann teaching piano and drums to New York City youth or watching WWII documentaries at home in Brooklyn, where he currently lives with his wife and two cats.
