It's been a week of birthdays for Josh Higgins, founder of Refresh Records. Fresh off celebrating his own 34th birthday, he's now heading into a weekend of shows to celebrate Refresh's third anniversary at Snug Harbor on Friday and Visulite Theatre on Saturday.
Ryan and Josh (left and right, respectively, in the above picture) had a one-on-one convo about Josh's 20 years in the music business, what it takes to run a locally based record label, vinyl and much more. They touch on a slew of Refresh acts, from former signings like Holy Ghost Tent Revival and Scowl Brow to current artists on the roster like Junior Astronomers and Cuzco.
New co-host Mariah Scott couldn't make it to this week's recording, but worry not, she will be back for a great episode we have planned next week.
