Joshua Gonzalez

Joshua “Josh” Gonzalez was born in the small city of Indio in the beautiful state of California. He was born into a Christian family of musicians and was constantly around music. His dad played in several bands while he was growing up and he instilled that passion into Josh and his siblings. Josh began to show an interest in music when he was in middle school. He chose to play the flute but quickly realized it wasn’t for him. While he was learning how to play the flute, he did, however, learn the basic music fundamentals. He gravitated more towards the percussion section and it was then that a spark ignited inside of him. He continued with percussion in middle school and grew with knowledge and passion. Upon entering high school, he auditioned for the drumline and was placed on the bass line as a freshman and later on in his high school career, he moved onto marching snare drum. He was taught by Drum Corp International professionals who marched in The Blue Devils, Madison Scouts, and in the RCC drumlines. They hounded the importance of timing, precision, and perfection and it has played a tremendous part in his career as a musician. Josh has taken those qualities and used them in the various performances he has participated in. During his four years in high school, Josh participated in wind ensemble percussion, marching band drumline and winter drumline. He competed in numerous band and drumline competitions, received many awards, and received much recognition within the community. After his high school career, he joined a Christian rock band called RenderSoul; they performed at various venues which included the Riverside County National Fair and Date Festival, and they opened for renowned Christian Hip-Hop artist, KJ-52. Currently, he is a worship drummer and plays for the Sunday and mid-week services at his church (Fountain Of Living Water Christian Church and he is also starting up a local worship band. It was Josh’s Christian faith that drove him to start up the band; he wants to use the talent that was placed upon him to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Josh’s passions are, were, and always will be his Christian faith, drumming and music.

Soultone Cymbals have a very unique sound. Just perfect for any application, nd the variety of lines they offer make the cymbals even that much more desirable. The attention to detail when it comes to how these cymbals were made is easy to see and hear.

When you play them, it doesn’t feel like you are hitting a machine made piece of metal. You are playing a handmade instrument that’s designed to compliment a song.
If you are tired of the same ol’ “cymbal sound” that other companies offer try Soultone! You will automatically feel the difference and feel like you are making music with every hit.

Soultone Cymbals have helped me begin to be more confident with my drumming and publicity. Artist relations are very helpful and friendly, every time we talk they make me feel welcomed and like family.
