Josh Plotner

guest musician
Josh Plotner is a woodwind multi-instrumentalist, recording artist, composer, producer and arranger with a collection of over 60 woodwind instruments, and has been working in the music industry for over a decade.

He graduated Berklee College of Music Magna Cum Laude after 3 years with a double major in Performance and Jazz Composition, and currently lives in New York performing on Broadway, in the GRAMMY award winning 8-Bit Big Band, and for many solo artists. As a recording artist, Josh works on a diverse array of projects, including films from Hollywood to Bollywood, television, video games, commercials, and albums. Highlights include "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", “Madam Secretary”, “Red Dead Redemption 2”, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, and the newly released PS5 game “Kena: Bridge of Spirits”, where he is featured on over 30 instruments. With a wide variety of experiences and training, Josh is comfortable in almost any musical context. He can perform any written part, create his own, improvise, and even arrange and transcribe as necessary. Written parts are ideal, but for parts that would otherwise be exported straight from a DAW, a quantized .mid file is best.

Josh is very good at understanding a job requirement and making the whole process as quick and easy as possible. Not only does he communicate in a quick and friendly manner but he also sent through the recordings really diligently. The final tracks he sent us are very clean and his playing is perfect. Thanks again Josh!

Josh is an incredible talent! I don’t think you’ll find anyone anywhere who can be the entire woodwinds section in a symphonic orchestra plus play dozens of other wind instruments like a M A S T E R, too. Great communication, accommodating and you’ll get the goods fast. Highly recommended!

All of the positive reviews of Josh are absolutely true and reflective of my experience working with him. He's a real pro, delivers on time and of the highest quality. Seriously, if you're considering working with him, do it. Thanks Josh!!
