In 2001 Joshua was awarded the first guitar performance scholarship at West Virginia University. This was his first encounter of bebop and modern jazz stylings and would ultimately be a life changing experience that led to the attendance of the Ohio State University in 2003. There Joshua was awarded two performance scholarships, and met many of the musicians he currently plays with in and around the Columbus, Ohio area.
Joshua Hill plays with several bands and artists in Columbus, Ohio including the guitar trio Birdshack, cover band Popgun, Miles Davis tribute band Sanctuary, B-3 organist Tony Monaco, R&B band Hoodoo Soul Band, and Brooklyn-based jazz group Huntertones.
