Joshua Isley is originally from Ravenna, Ohio. He has been a guitarist for over twenty years. He has played in bands off and on throughout this time, including Dragonslayer, Evil Shawn and Finite Mind. He has performed in venues as small as a corner pub and all the way up to outdoor music festivals. His flair for the theatrical has been cultivated by his twenty years of performing a lead role in “The Nutcracker” at the Akron Civic Theatre. He has also had roles in many other theatrical productions and is at home in front of an audience.
In 2008 he, along with Jennifer and the band's original second guitarist, formed what is now known as "Von Isley".
