Art & Life with Josh Teitelbaum

Today we’d like to introduce you to Josh Teitelbaum.

Josh, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
Having grown up in Baltimore into a house where music was always around, I picked up the drums at the age of five and have been hooked since. I went to school for Jazz and Contemplative Studies at the University of Michigan, where I began playing with a Rock N’ Soul band called Great Divide. I then moved to Chicago for five years before landing in LA. Since moving to LA, I have gotten involved in many recording and projects, and then started a project called “Family Company” with Alex Kyhn and Jason Goldstein. We have put on Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway, and Ray Charles tributes in LA, and have played on some records together as a rhythm section. I am grateful to be in a town with so many talented creators. It is endlessly inspiring.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I always think big. I never let things that from the surface seem out of reach, get in my head. I dream it up and make it happen. I am super type A and have an entrepreneurial spirit, but also a creative desire to continue making great art.

Artists rarely, if ever pursue art for the money. Nonetheless, we all have bills and responsibilities and many aspiring artists are discouraged from pursuing art due to financial reasons. Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
Get a side gig that doesn’t consume too much of your headspace.
