Josh Richet – Singer, Songwriter & Web Guru

  • I'm from beautiful, sunny Penticton, BC

Who Is Josh Richet?

I’m Josh Richet. I’m a performer, singer, songwriter & web developer from Penticton, BC. I write and play a lot of my own music as a means of escape from the rude world. My greatest pleasure in life is to rock a crowd.

MUSIC

My recent musical achievements include winning a battle of the bands at the Legion in Penticton with my band, Blaze4. I recently opened as a solo act (without my band) for Simulated Contact at The Elite in Penticton, BC. I regularily play solo at Open Mic Nights at The Elite and I’m looking to open more shows.

I don’t really think of myself as a great guitarist. Indeed, I play just enough guitar to get the music I want to make from my mind onto the stage, or at least onto a track. I am also an Avid Snowboarder and if I’m not up at Apex, I can often be found hanging out at Leggott’s Classic Guitars just soaking up the ambiance and drooling over all of the fine instruments.

CODE

I’m also a programmer with over a decade of experience. I build custom web applications that enable websites to aid businesses in unique ways. I’ve worked for bootstrapped startups and billion-dollar corporations. I’ve been a valuable member of solo, small and large project teams in a number of scenarios that have led me to working as a consultant part-time and teaching web development at the Center for Arts & Technology (CAT) in Kelowna, BC.
