We first laid our eyes (and ears!) on Josiah Hawley when we clicked on the TV for Season 4 of the hit NBC show, The Voice, as he sang Maroon 5’s Sunday Morning. Mentored by renown R&B artist, Usher, America chose model-turned-singer Josiah as a top ten finalist. On the show, he immediately stole the hearts of millions worldwide with his sultry voice and classic good looks. Since his appearance on The Voice, Josiah has released four YouTube music videos featuring original songs. Josiah is now collaborating on new music with well-known songwriters in the business, including writers for Jeremih, Demi Lovato and Lupe Fiasco. “Small-town charm, a killer voice and smoldering good looks make Hawley one to watch,” Ocean Drive Magazine says about the sexy singer. Additionally, Access Hollywood called Josiah a singer with the whole package, saying he is the “New Best Looking Guy in the World.” E! News went on to crown Josiah as “Hottie of the Week.”

Born and raised in Fort Smith, Arkansas, Josiah was brought up with small town family values and a strong work ethic. In his early twenties, Josiah left everything behind and took his talents to Nashville, Tennessee. Finally, in 2012, Josiah moved to our beloved city of Los Angeles, and boy, are we happy about it! The 28 year-old singer/ songwriter/ model currently lives in LA with his wife and is working on releasing his long-awaited first album. He has upcoming engagements in Miami, Toronto, Oklahoma, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and LA.

When Josiah isn’t on stage pleasing a crowd, you can find him in the studio recording new music, working out or riding his motorcycle. Josiah can be found on InstagramTwitter and Facebook where he loves to engage with friends and fans. You can also check out his newly launched official site for updates, upcoming performances and other exciting happenings.
