Josh Whelchel is best known for composing music for indie games.
He has been actively scoring games since 2003.
Josh has scored games with Mojang, Witching Hour Studios, and Adult Swim Games.
His 2016 score for Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is highly lauded and features performances by John Robert Matz, Kristin Naigus, Patti Rudisill, and Ryan C. Connelly. The Cincinnati based choir was led by conductor Isaac Selya.
Josh is also well known for his early works in The Spirit Engine series by Mark Pay. The lengthy scores for The Spirit Engine - Original Soundtrack, and The Spirit Engine 2 - Original Soundtrack call back to Japanese RPG soundtracks in big ways, being primarily produced using tracking tools such as Modplug Tracker and ReNoise.
Josh studied Composition at the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, Ohio, and later co-founded the Game Music Bundle and Loudr in San Francisco.
Josh is also featured as a songwriter on other releases, such as Monolith (Feat. Amanda Appiarius) on the FEZ release FZ: SideZ, Power of the Meat (Josh Whelchel Remix) (feat. Melinda Hershey) on the Super Meat Boy soundtrack, and So Blue (Pipe Dream Remix by Josh Whelchel feat. Amanda Appiarius) on the VVVVVV release, PPPPPPowerup.
