A song about fighting with your lover and your inner demons at the same time.

Hailing from Long Island (NY), Josh Tobias began his career learning guitar from his father Toby Tobias, a world-traveling professional musician. While living in Brooklyn through his early 20s, Josh balanced his time as a musician and as a social worker, making the music schedule for a home that housed mentally-handicapped people.

Like Yourself is about his struggles with self-esteem and self-love, a theme that will resonate with an entire Instagram generation that struggles to match reality with their expectations of what a life is supposed to look like. The crisp, modern production blends well with the introspective subject matter, and resonates as a song that people can sing-along with now, but also think about later. Like Yourself, the latest from Josh Tobias, is a song about fighting with your lover and your inner demons at the same time.

In 2015 Josh launched onto the indie scene with single 'Beachside Lover,' a funk-infused retro RnB record that has accumulated millions of total plays.
