He has been characterized as experimental/electronica due to his use of signal-altering devices in performance to allow him to create live solo performances using keyboards, tuned percussion, and drums. Dosh often collaborates with other musicians in both live performances in recordings, both as leader and in support.

Joe & Vicky Price

NO COVER

"Joe & Vick have been making their own brand of blues music for decades. Hailing from Iowa, this husband & wife duo spend more time on the road then some musicians half their age.  Their take on the traditiuonal blues is unique and authentic at the same time. Their sound takes you down to a juke joint in Mississippi over 100 years ago, where there was no air conditioning, the beer was warm and the songs are bathed in mud."  -Jody Hendrix - Little Class Records
