Josh Tepper, a born-and-bred New Yorker, emerged from the esteemed halls of Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, continuing his artistic journey at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. A cinematic scholar, Tepper’s talents span both music and film. Residing in the heart of the city, he shares a unique bond as a twin.
Notably, Tepper harmonized with the multi-talented Madisyn Shipman, recognized for her roles on screen and in Playboy. Their duet stands as a testament to Tepper’s diverse collaborations. The chart-topping anthem “Guide Me Meron” resonates profoundly with audiences worldwide. This Kabbalistic gem strikes chords deep within the soul, offering solace and guidance to many. Tepper’s professional journey led him to work alongside luminaries like Kelly Killoren Bensimon of Real Housewives of New York, and contribute his talents to Gwyneth Paltrow’s goop.com, as well as the iconic Cynthia Rowley’s creations.
Though a solo artist, Tepper enlisted the talents of Abe Stewart, who lent his voice, guitar skills, and took the reins in production. Influenced by musical legends like Pat Benatar, U2, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tepper’s sound is a fusion of indie rock with an edge, perfect for both soul-searching drives and moments of contemplation. The haunting “Eyes of Jezebel” delves into the malevolent forces that can disrupt and shatter one’s life. It’s an exploration of facing the darkness and finding the path to truth and light. Tepper eloquently encapsulates the essence of this journey: “When evil energy comes into your life it feels like the end, but in reality it’s the light leading you to truth.” This sentiment reverberates through his music, a beacon of hope amidst life’s trials.
