Ari Joshua

Music Factory Records proudly presents "Rare Groove," the latest single that brings together a constellation of musical virtuosos. This piece showcases the genius of Ari Joshua on guitar, Delvon Lamarr wielding the Hammond organ, Skerik enchanting with his saxophone, and Grant Schroff commanding the drums. Together, they embark on a sonic journey that is as mesmerizing as it is unforgettable.


Ari Joshua, an emblematic voice from the Dead's lineage, dives deep into the psychedelic realm, unveiling an all-star rendition of the Garcia/Hunter masterpiece, "Help on the Way." Teaming up with the likes of John Kimock on drums, Andy Hess on bass, and the talented Eden Ladin on keyboards, Ari not only provides the vocals and guitar but also steers the ship as the producer.

Ari Joshua, together with a brilliant ensemble of musicians, is thrilled to announce the release of their reinterpretation of 'Eyes of the World,' an iconic composition from the legendary duo, Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter. This fresh rendition arrives hot on the heels of the much-buzzed-about Dead and Company farewell tour, giving fans another avenue to celebrate the music that's touched millions.

Color Red Records is thrilled to announce the release of Ari Joshua's latest single "Soulmine" featuring an all-star cast of musicians. The single showcases the exceptional talents of composer Ari Joshua on guitar, Delvon Lamarr on Hammond organ, Skerik on sax, Grant Schroff on drums, and Tor Dietrichson on Congas.


Recorded at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, NY, "Lights Out" is the latest single from an all-star cast of musicians.

Another exciting musical project is emerging from an unlikely source - an old bicycle warehouse in the heart of Burlington, Vermont. The Tank, affectionately known to some as "the Phish Tank", hosted this session just after 'The Beacon Jams' sessions at the tail end of our national health crisis. The project, until further notice, is going by the acronym 'RAaR' for Ray, Ari, and Russ.

Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and owner and founder of the successful music school, The Music Factory, Ari Joshua announces the release of his latest track, "Meeting of The Minds," featuring Billy Martin on drums, John Medeski on keyboards, Ari Joshua on guitar, and Jason Fraticelli of Cyro Baptista and Matisyahu on bass.

Guitarist, educator, singer, and songwriter Ari Joshua continues to trend with a steady stream of heady collaborations in 2023. ‘Eye Just Called, To Soul, I Love You’ out January 26th, 2023 is his 4th release already this year, and we haven’t hit February yet (comet warning).


Guitarist Ari Joshua continues to impress with a steady stream of epic collaborations in 2022, and 2023. It’s gonna be another breakout year, we are digging this prolific young player, musically he is just overflowing. ‘‘The Clinic’ Featuring Ray Paczkowski, & Russ Lawton of Soule Monde & The Trey Anastasio Band is the latest new song, and it goes  live on Jan 17th.


Shamanistic Jazz, Rock, Psych, guitarist, composer, and Music Factory founder Ari Joshua is very happy to announce that the doors to his deep and mighty vault are swinging open. For years, Joshua has been content in his role as a “musician’s musician”, and educator flying under the radar of the general public. This is a breakout year. After years spent writing and recording with some of this generation's greatest, Joshua has decided that it's time to get this art out into the world!
