Joshua Trinidad is a Mexican-American trumpet player, composer and producer, who takes multiple styles of music such as jazz, ambient, rock, electronic and lo-fi, as well as elements from hip hop and effortlessly reshapes them into a unique soundscape.
His remarkable ease in handling the often-contrary conventions of “jazz” ensured a strong interest in both acoustic and electric music. This chameleon-like ability soon established him as a much sought-after musician in the southwest region of the United States as well as in Europe and Central Asia, ultimately led to his colorful and diverse resume as a sideman. During his time recording and performing in Scandinavia, Joshua Trinidad was introduced to Giacomo Bruzzo, who welcomed him into his prestigious and much-lauded roster RareNoise Records in London, England. Alongside recording Joshua’s own material, he has recorded many studio sessions with artists such as Sage Francis, Chicano Batman, Nathaniel Rateliff, Riatsu and Umlaut. Joshua Trinidad is also a thriving artist on the Subcontinental Records label in Bangalore, India by visionary Arun Natarajan.
