1. What first got you interested in music and creating music? 

I’ve always had a love for music, and I’ve been writing since I could first reach the piano keys! Growing up surrounded by musical theatre definitely had an impact on my love for creating songs.

2. What artists or bands have influenced your music so far? 

Alan Menken, Stephen Sondheim, and Pasak and Paul have definitely had the greatest influence on my musical style. I grew up listening to Alan Menken’s music, like in The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, and I’ve always loved Stephen Sondheim’s complex lyrical patterns and melodies.

3. Your single Top Of The World is coming out soon! What was your experience like regarding recording the song?  

I had an absolute blast recording the song! Like most of my other songs, it was recorded at home, in front of my computer.

4. What was the inspiration for the title of the album? 

The name of the song is inspired by a question, asking those who bully others if they really feel like they’re at the top of the world.

5. Do you have a favorite verse off of Top of The World that you feel particularly passionate about right now?

I think my favorite verse from the song is :

“Feel your worries melt away

Nothing hurts you anymore

Climb your castle on a hill

Watch the weather down below”. 

Combined with the melody, it may be one of my favorite parts of the song. I think about how a bully must feel metaphorically as if they are better than everyone while trying to make others feel so small.

7. You worked with many people from across the globe on this album, who would you most like to collaborate or work with in the future? 

In the future, I would love to eventually collaborate with Alan Menken. I grew up listening to his music and it would be a DREAM to work with him on writing.

8. Can fans look forward to any music videos in association with the song?

Possibly! Stay tuned!                     

9. Will you be doing anything special to celebrate the release of this project?

I’ll be making a few TikToks and going live on my social media!

10. What are your future goals with music?

I want to keep writing and releasing music, performing, and music directing!

11. Please share where fans can listen to your music. 

You can listen to my music on all major music streaming platforms!

12. Please tell us a little bit about your personal experience with social media. 

I post a lot of original content, remixes, and musical-ified songs on my Tiktok and Instagram @joshuaturchin!

13. Anything else you would like to share with us?

In addition to composing, writing, and performing, I also love music directing and playing keys for shows. I recently was the rehearsal accompanist for an Off-Broadway show called Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical, which everyone should try to see. It’s hilarious. Music directing and playing keys in between writing and working as an actor is a great way for me to continue to hone my skills as a musician and performer.
