When Josh Rennie-Hynes moved to Nashville last year, he wasn't just leaving behind his Australian homeland, he was leaving behind the country where he'd kicked off his solo career with two acclaimed albums, before finding an international audience as one half of The Ahern Brothers. A folk duo, whose harmony-heavy, self-titled debut album earned a four-star review from Rolling Stone, Josh and partner Stephen Grady quickly garnered comparisons to Simon and Garfunkel, The Everly Brothers . They became an in- demand touring act and the two could have easily ridden their wave of success even higher. But, instead, Josh decided he was looking for a change — not only in musical direction but in location, too. With an album’s worth of songs written and his recording band assembled, he headed to Nashville's world-famous Sound Emporium studios. 2019's Patterns marks Josh Rennie-Hynes' most indie rock-oriented album to date. There are layers of electric guitar, swirling keys, and pounding percussion, all wrapped around a voice that swoons and swaggers in equal measure. In his short time in the US, Josh has already been covered by Paste, Wide Open Country, MXDWN, and had a full layout feature in last fall’s No Depression print issue, not to mention NPR’s Bob Boilen showed up for one of his Americanafest sets. With 2019's Patterns, he makes a compelling case for taking the road less traveled. Whatever genre you’d like to call it, this is music at its most engaging, written by an artist whose travels, heartbreaks, trials, and triumphs have molded his sound into unique shapes. These Patterns are all his own.
