Joshua Carlton – Dark Waters (Video)

“-Dark Waters- delivers melancholy out of your soul. Loneliness and hopelessness as the main moo and connecting thread in this beautiful cinematic work of the composer -Joshua Carlton-.”

“-Dark Waters- это меланхолия вашей души. Одиночество и безысходность как главная и связующая нить в этой кинематографической работе композитора -Joshua Carlton-.”

This song is part of an album that was written while I was going through the emotions of being diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Although sad and melancholic, The music also conveys a sense of hopefulness. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Oregon instrumentalist Joshua Carlton toured the world with post rock band This Patch of Sky for the last decade. This lead him to compose music for television and film such as ‘Brand, a Second Coming’ (a documentary film on actor Russell Brand and his battle with drug addiction), and the Vice channel. He has also been featured in the McDonald’s Ramadan commercial, as well as large brands such as Petco. Joshua’s excited to share his new solo project. “This is an album that I absolutely had to write” he says of 2021 debut ‘Moonlight Under the Black Flag’. Joshua was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in February of 2020 and found solace in purging his emotions through the music he was composing. “This music is truly my heart, and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed creating it”.
