Joshua Luke Smith

Joshua Luke Smith is a wordsmith packed with ammo. As a poet, rapper and producer he creates from the mandate to ‘speak into the chaos’. Joshua has a unique perspective on the world from both education and experience. After being born in London, and raised in Pakistan, he ultimately settled in Bath, UK near where he graduated from Bath Spa University.

His childhood of consuming Nas, The Roots and Fugees meshes with current sounds of Stormzy and Bon Iver to inform the songs coming out of the studio in Joshua’s attic. He’s been lauded in Complex and featured on BBC Radio 1. Spring 2018 brought his TED Talk being released, a US and EU tour and his first US label release on Residence Music.

Joshua along with his wife Kara founded Orphan No More back in 2012.
