Josh Vine is an Alternative singer/songwriter inspired by Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and Ben Howard.

Billboard Lights is the name of his latest release. The artist said about the song: “Billboard lights was a tough song to record. It started off as this huge-sounding rock demo which I liked, but something didn’t quite work. So, when I brought it in to record with my mate Bill [Ottewill] on producer duties he suggested rebuilding it. It was a painful process, but we got there in the end”
