Joshua Roberts (Magnolia Park) shares his debut solo EP ‘Good for You,’ drops video for ‘Father’

Known for uplifting stadium pop punk anthems and energizing live performances, powerhouse vocalist Joshua Roberts unveils his debut solo EP Good For You‘ on Epitaph Records. Pushing the limits of his artistic output, the new project finds him diving into alternative R&B as he expands his vocal range while showcasing his diverse sonic palette.  

He also shares the cinematic music video for his deeply heartfelt EP opener, Father that incorporates elements of alt-pop and gospel. As emphasized in the simple yet powerful refrain “I had nobody to tell me how to be a man,” the production video depicts him symbolically overcoming the challenges of growing up without a paternal figure in his life.  “I wrote “Father” for those who are going through similar situations,” Roberts reveals. “I hope this song gets to them in a positive way” .

Across eight tracks, EP conveys feelings of longing, lovesickness, and at times jaded heartlessness. During the process of creating the EP, Joshua Roberts was immersing himself in the music of eclectic artists with distinct vocal tones such as Labrinth, Jason Derulo and The Weeknd, while also taking note of the gritty dialogue and genre-bending sonics of HBO’s Euphoria. What results is a conglomeration of alt R&B inspired dance-pop with raw, sometimes dark lyrical honesty.
