+ 05/09/2017 + After 250+ hours of work and almost a year-and-a-half later, the musical "Come As You Are," is ready for production! Last fall of 2015, I was contacted by the whimsical and ever so charming Ron Holbrook of Sahome to write music that would help propel his play that focused on anti-bullying in schools. There are 8 original compositions that were either written or arranged by me. More info will be posted as production with a local school gets into gear.

"I hired Josh to create original music for a :60 & :30 broadcast regional spot. Josh worked his magic and after I made a few tweak suggestions, he sent me a preliminary track. Before we started, I warned Josh that my client had very specific music taste and there would probably be multiple revisions. Surprisingly, the client was happy with the original piece Josh created and he never asked for any changes. Josh was fast, attentive and made me look quite good."
"Josh is an extremely talented composer and musician. He composed an original score for one of my short films that premiered in an online film festival in June 2015. When I approached him about the project I gave him a song sample and explained to him what I was looking for and he nailed it on the first try. The song was perfect and it complimented the film so well. I would recommend Josh to anyone who's looking for quality music."

"I needed a classical themed composition to be used as background music in a video for a Kickstarter campaign, and the final product that Josh created blew me away! Within two days he already had an amazing tune composed. I gave him the thumbs up on the idea and he was able to find some talented musicians to bring the tune to life! The whole song was affordable and fit perfect with my video. I highly recommend Sohn Compositions."
“Josh was great to work with. His arrangements were exactly what we were looking for and his work was punctual and accurate. He was open to feedback and changes and I would absolutely work with him again.”
"In working with Mr. Sohn during the Mundi Project's 2015 Connections multidisciplinary project, he brought his expertise and knowledge of building midi files for the project's culminating multimedia piano fusion concert, "Variations." His contribution helped lead to the success of the concert. We look forward to working with Mr. Sohn on future projects, as he brings a sense of professionalism and wealth of experience to table."
