Josh Pyke Scores Sixth Top 10 Album In A Row

Josh Pyke’s ‘Rome debuted at no 8 in Australia this week making it its sixth Top 10 album in a row.

Josh’s debut ‘Memories & Dust’ reach no 4 in 2007. Subsequent albums reached no 3, no 4, no 7, no 2 and now no 8.

While Josh doesn’t consider himself a singles artist, chart success still matters to him.

“I 100% do. I am not going to lie. It’s a personal goal,” Josh tells “I also acknowledge we are in Covid and people’s attention spans are not directed towards their favourite artist that they have followed over the years. My expectations are realistic. It would be a real accomplishment for me but its not the be all and end all. For me its more about that I’m more focused on getting out again and performing live and that’s not possible at the moment. It is difficult to be focused on something you have zero control over.”

For Josh its all about the album. He lets others pick the singles. “I definitely think of myself as an album artist,” he says. “Many years ago I sat down with my manager and said I’m not going to write singles, I will write songs. If I can get 15 to 20 songs that we can pair down to an album and they can identify a couple of those songs that can be considered singles that’s great. But I have never wrote with that agenda and I have always stuck with it”.
