Ever since his professional stage debut in the musical Falsettos, in 2002, Josh Ramirez is living the dream of a performing artist, and has since been part of various musicals, concerts and events.
Sustaining a career in the music and theater industry takes a lot of discipline and perseverance, and in the span of 22 years, Josh has trained in Broadway, Opera, Pop, Acting and Musical Theater with some of the country’s best theater companies such as Philippine Opera Company,Trumpets Playshop, Trumpets Musicademy, 9 Works Theatrical & Theater Actors Guild which earned him roles in several musicals for Repertory Philippines (Disney’s Mulan Jr., Jack & the Beanstalk, Seussical, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland & Scrooge); Trumpets (A Charlie Brown Christmas); Word of Mouth Theater Philippines (Flight of a Falcon: A Musical History); Stage Dreams Inc. (Joseph's Dreams); and Youth of San Antonio’s Amazing God, in which he played the lead role of Jesus Christ.
With versatility as his strong suit, Josh has also done commercials as a child, and has sung at events for SM, Lifestyle Network, weddings and corporate events. He even became grand champion in a singing competition in 2009 called PLAYSHOP IDOL, and recently was handpicked by Korina Sanchez-Roxas to sing at a dinner-soirée for the liberal party.
After years of constantly doing events, stage productions, theater workshops and recitals; 2016 for Josh seems to be a year focused on music. He was able to launch his live music career with a monthly gig at Staple & Perk Cafe.
Now, on his third month at 12 Monkeys Music Hall; home of the best music artists in the country, his dream of becoming a seasoned artist has come true and we’ll be definitely seeing more from him soon.
