From the very childhood, Josh was fond of music, and he started playing trumpet at very young age. But, that didn’t go well, and he soon switches to drums from the trumpet. At childhood, Joshua was guided by his strict parents who decided what type of music he should listen to. That’s why he took the advice of the local music stores about different types of music.
The musical career of Josh Dun was started with working at a Guitar Store for three years. These years had contributed in building his musical sense which has made him a great musician in his later life. As a drummer, he appeared for the first time when playing for ‘House of Heroes.’ He got the chance when the original drummer of the band, Colin Rigsby decided to take a break and spend time with his family. He joined ‘House of Heroes’ in March 2010 and continued until October 2010, until Colin returned and joined his place.
It was 2011, when Chris Salith, the drummer of ‘Twenty One Pilots,’ invited Josh to listen to their concert. He was so amazed by their performance that he admitted joining the band at the request of the lead vocalist, Tyler Joseph. Josh got a golden opportunity when Chris Salith and Nick Thomas left the band for their tight schedule. It was the middle of 2011 when Josh left the job of the guitar store and joined the band. Soon he became the permanent member of ‘Twenty One Pilots.’
With Tyler, Josh released the second album of the band, ‘Regional at Best’ on 8th July 2011. The next year, 2012, brought huge success for the duo as well as the band when they signed the significant record label, ‘Fueled by Ramen.’ It was a subsidiary of ‘Atlantic Records.’
The most significant work of the duo is obviously their third album, ‘Vessel,’ released on January 8, 2013. This album contains 14 songs from different genres, like Indie Pop, Electro Pop, Alternative Rock and all. According to Tyler, the motto of the album was to reveal the true faces of people behind the setup identities.
