She has released seven solo CDs and has received airplay on every continent except Antarctica. She has appeared in over a hundred and fifty recordings, and her music has been used for the soundtracks of multiple motion pictures. She has also performed in seventeen countries across the Americas, Europe, Japan, and Oceania, and various artists have recorded over a hundred of her compositions and co-writes across the US, France, Ireland, and New Zealand. Josh Paxton has been one of the premiere pianists in the New Orleans music scene for the past twenty years. He moved to the city in the mid-‘90s to study jazz piano with Ellis Marsalis. He has performed and recorded with such diverse groups as the Wild Magnolias, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, the Cosmic Krewe, Maria Muldaur and Dr. John. He has also transcribed the music of James Booker and Professor Longhair for sheet music publication. In addition to regular solo performances, Joshua can frequently be seen playing with Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes and vocalist Debbie Davis as well as ZoüKeys.
