Josh was born on September 25, 1986 to Randy and Rhonda Swift. His dad was and still is a phenomenal musician so Josh loves music naturally. At 6 months old, Josh was making noises with his mouth in time with music he was hearing. He started playing drums when he was 2 years old and eventually started traveling with his family on the Southern Gospel circuit. When he was 16, Josh was playing a session when he saw a dobro for the first time. He just HAD to have one! About a year later, Gibson Guitars gave him his first dobro. At 17, Josh played with a local group called Set Apart. He fell in love with Mountain Gospel while traveling with those guys. At 18, he became a part of Carrie Hassler and Hard Rain. At 19, he had left CHHR and was filling in with some friends in Gatlinburg, TN when Doyle Lawson rounded the street corner and listened for nearly a half hour. Little did he know that he would soon be invited to jam with DLQ and that that jam turned out to be a showcase at IBMA. Doyle asked him if he knew a song of his and Josh replied “I’ll know it by the time it gets to me.” Doyle hired Josh that night on October 5, 2007. He says, “This gig is an absolute BLAST and I am honored not only travel with DLQ, but to find myself constantly learning life’s lessons. God has been so so so good to me and I give him ALL the glory.” On July 24th 2008, Josh married his first love, Tobi. They are expecting their first child in 2011. Josh and Tobi live in middle Tennessee and go to church at Cookeville First Assembly. They have two dogs, Henry and Peanut. Josh spends lots of time with his family when not on the road and he loves to play golf. Italian food is his favorite. Josh’s favorite Bible verse is Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Josh plays a multitude of instruments…dobro, lap steel, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, drums, and piano. He uses D’Addario strings… EXP42′s, EXP17′s, and EXP74′s.
