Nashville, TN (Top40 Charts/ Webster & Associates) - It's not often that a young singer/songwriter conveys the passion and soulfulness of legendary artists of years past - Joshua Panda rises to that challenge on his upcoming, eponymous release. With a hard-to-box-in style and a rich new album that evokes Van Morrison's gruff swagger and Patsy Cline's swoon, Panda delivers a preacher-like amalgam of energy, fervor and intimate storytelling. Considering that Panda started singing gospel music at Rockwell Baptist Church in Huntersville, NC at the ripe age of three, it's not surprising to hear that his live shows draw audiences ranging from nine year-olds to ninety year-olds to their feet - his passion is invigorating.
