About Josh David Barrett
From his musical upbringings in church to performing with today’s top artists, two time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, bassist, and producer Joshua David Barrett continues to inspire many through his diverse musical palette. A native of New Jersey of Ethiopian, Hebrew-Indigenous, and Jamaican ascent, Josh David grew up around the top musicians of the day, hailing from Union County same as legendary Funk group, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic.
In 2004, Josh David and friends answered the call to Reggae music and formed the band Judah Tribe. Their debut album “Nu Day Dawnin” was released independently in 2013 with a 10th Anniversary Rerelease set for Summer 2023, co-produced by legendary engineer, Dennis Thompson. Having performed extensively throughout the Tri-State Area, in the south, and even the United Nations, to opening for such bands as Steel Pulse and Inner Circle, destiny would have it that Judah Tribe would open for the legendary Reggae group founded by the late Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Bunny Wailer, The Wailers in 2012 at New Jersey Performing Arts Center. It was here that Josh crossed paths with distant relatives, Aston “FamilyMan” Barrett and Aston Jr. leading to his joining forces with The Wailers as lead vocalist in 2015, spreading JAH message of “One Love”. The Wailers released their debut album after 25 years, “One World” with songs produced and written by Emilio Estefan, Josh David, Aston Barrett, Jr, Cedella and Skip Marley, and Shaggy. The album was nominated for the 2021 Grammys “Reggae Album of The Year”.
