Win Tickets to See Yoshi Flower

I've always wondered what it would be like to grow up with parents that said yes. What if you had two people who supported your dreams and told you that you could do something special if you tried? Would it make you more likely to try, to take chances, to believe in the "impossible"? If you ask Yoshi Flower, I think he would say yes. Detroit born Joshua Smith has parents who put a guitar in his hand at the age of 6, started booking him at PJ's Lager House by age 12, and never told him that he couldn't do something. They showed him every genre of music and left him alone to explore. In fact, he says he grew up listening to everything from the late '60s psychedelic rock to Linda Ronstadt. His unapologetic love for so many different sounds is what makes his music so interesting, refreshing, and fun to listen to.

He isn't afraid to mix any genre or try something new. He also isn't afraid to make music on his own terms. When he first signed to Interscope Records in 2018 everyone was asking when he would release an album. He had no deadlines and no set plans at the time and yet somehow has written and released 3 solid albums since signing to the label. His latest album I Will Not Let My Love Go To Waste features 13 solid songs that blend seamlessly. You can listen to all of his music on Spotify here. He always said he just wanted to "just keep making music" and that is exactly what he has been up to.

You can also catch him live when he returns to Detroit to play The Loving Touch alongside fellow Assemble Sound alum Sam Austins and Whiterosemoxie on Saturday, March 14th. Tickets to attend the show are $14 and they can be purchased here.  You can also enter to win a pair of tickets to the show courtesy of the team at The Crofoot Presents. To enter, please email your full name to with the subject line #yoshi. We will draw one lucky winner on the morning of the show and they will get to attend the show with a friend for free.
