According to Campbell, the hero’s journey unfolds in stages. It begins with an awareness of human suffering, which motivates a journey in search of wisdom, self-realization, and – after many obstacles are overcome -- a reclamation of the self. The voyage traditionally includes an entry into a supernatural realm, followed by a descent into the Underworld. There, the hero wages war with inner and outer demons, experiences a spiritual death, finds redemption, and ultimately returns home bearing the fruits of rebirth.
Coming Home is Joshua's first definitive opus, meant to be listened to from start to finish: as a comprehensive and unbroken journey. The lead voice of the cello can be considered a personification of both the larger mythological idea of the hero, as well as the narrator of his own journey - or yours.
Joshua has toured and performed extensively in North America as well as Germany, France, Japan, West Africa, and Argentina.
