Though he has been with several popular indie bands, Joshua Michael Tillman is best known to music fans as Father John Misty. A solo artist pretty consistently since 2004, he was also a member of Fleet Foxes, The Lashes and Siberian amongst others.
After learning the drums at a very young age, Tillman taught himself the guitar when he was 12. His upbringing was in a strict Evangelical Christian home and was not allowed to listen to secular music until he was 17 and then only that which was spiritual. As such, when he was young he thought he might want to become a pastor but that was just due to the performance aspect.
At the age of 21 he moved to New York to attend college and then moved on to Seattle. This is really where his music career began. He then moved to Los Angeles. Writing songs, recording and touring soon followed. As J. Tillman he released 8 albums and as Father John Misty 2 – Fear the Fun in 2012 and I Love You, Honeybear in 2015.
