After completing a Diploma of Music at the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide in 2013, he moved to Melbourne to study at the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music at Monash University. Josh has recently completed an honours in music performance at the University of Melbourne. Josh was lucky enough to be a semi-finalist in the 2017 National Jazz Awards at Wangaratta Jazz Festival. 🙏

One of his main ensembles is the 'Josh Bennier Sextet'. The group exclusively performs Australian music, to share their passion for the country’s local artists. Other projects include the 'Pure Element Group', a 5 piece contemporary ensemble featuring local Melbourne musicians and his latest project, 'Josh Bennier's Modular Group', focusing on through-composed art music drawing inspiration from the jazz idiom. 🪕

He has performed and recorded with many musicians including Joe Lovano, Tomasz Stanko, Ben Monder, Mike Nock, Tony Gould, Paul Grabowsky, Barney McAll, Paul Williamson, and David & Daniel Wilfred. Josh also spent two weeks in Tarraleah in 2017 taking part in the Australian Art Orchestras Creative Music Intensive, working with international artists such as Bae Il Dong and Sunny Kim. 🌺
