ABOUT

“By turning a violin into a boundary pushing instrument, Josh Kua is igniting a musical revolution.” - Men’s Folio Magazine

Who's Josh Kua? Every hero needs an origin story, and Josh has a cute one to tell. He first started fiddling around with a violin when he saw a live orchestra on tellie and decided he could top that. His age when he started training as a violinist? Just four. 

 

“A simple childhood activity has opened many doors for Josh Kua to touch hearts with his music.” - The Sun Newspaper

Flash-forward a few years and Josh's knack for tugging on the heart strings of his listeners translated to international gigs and TV appearances as a solo violinist in countries like Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan and China.

You may have enjoyed watching Josh do his thing on the violin at exclusive events and starry soirees, but his handsome mug can also be seen in campaigns for big-name brands like Nivea, Coca Cola, Honda and Carlsberg. Josh is international ambassador for Tong Ren Tang 同仁堂 Maca Oolong Tea.

Yup, Josh is a musician who just happens to be an international model, too; look out for him in the glossy pages of major mags like Harper's BAZAAR, Augustman and Men's Uno. 

 

What else should you know about this violin- and piano-playing male model who was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and raised in Melbourne, Australia? Josh has book smarts, too: he studied a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) and a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) on scholarship at Monash University.

“Typically, one doesn’t find the description of actor and model alongside that of playing the violin. Josh is an exception. And to add to the list of credentials he holds degrees in Law and Commerce from Australia’s Monash University.” – Augustman Magazine

 

MUSIC

“Violinist extraordinaire Josh Kua... returns with a new mission: playing sounds you have never heard before.” - Malay Mail Newspaper

Although classically trained, the essence of Josh’s music comes from playing by ear. Cultivating his flair for emotive and lyrical improvisation since childhood, Josh’s creative talent has grown his repertoire from unique interpretations of modern hits to his own original compositions.
