Josh Lee is an arranger, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist who got his musical start playing double bass in the community orchestra in his hometown, Spartanburg, South Carolina. After graduating from the Peabody Conservatory of Music Josh quickly became a fixture on concert stages across the globe for over two decades, leading his own ensemble Ostraka, and performing with artists and ensembles ranging from the Los Angeles Philharmonic to Radical Face. As a co-owner of Bear Machine Records, Josh now finds himself equally at home on either side of the microphone. Whether he’s using Bear Machine Studios’ arsenal of high end sample libraries or he’s  performing and tracking the arrangement concepts himself, Josh loves working with artists to make their sonic visions a reality. Josh currently makes music in close proximity to his collection of houseplants in Glendale, California.
