Hello Josh, This is a hard time of year for me, and it's six years since it was a hard time for you too. But I keep thinking Sababa baby, everything is cool. I'm living in Beacon now...so i look forward to a visit. Henry

Wow.. it's interesting when you find an old cd that you used to play over and over again.. and then wonder what happened to that artist.. where are they now.. and you look that beautiful person up.. and you find out that they are no longer in body.. but have moved onto the spirit world where the glory of the power they owned inside can be set free. Oddly enough my friends, and i, laid to rest our dear friend Jack yesterday. He died of cancer last week. Guess i find my solace thur music.. and here i am looking for the music that brought me peace around the time that i met jack. Same time i met Josh. What an amazing person.. I remember how inspired i was by him. He just glowed up there on stage. And was such a sweet and humble man when we spoke. All my prayers to you Josh.. look down on this crazy world with Jack.. and send us good vibes. Peace and love to you all, Amber-Rain

Amazing Josh - I just found you - due to a number of interactions with others, until I met Jami Lula and he sang Waving for us in the teen room at Mile Hi Church, in Colorado... I have since collected all your music that I can find. I feel such a deep connection to you - Josh. And though I missed my opportunity on this physical plane to connect with you, I feel we have met before and will again. I also know that your "spirit is in everything". I am so grateful you came to share your song... So much truth, light and inspiration - I find in your words and melodies. I find myself waving at flowers and trees :) sayin Hi Josh! Thanks for blessing us with your divine light. Namaste. Miss Melissa.

My nose has a cold And the winter, so bold, to assult and devour my insides Never rain into snow Never knowing I'd know of a time when you wouldn't be by From a curl at the ear To a princess's tear It was all I could do not to weep So I'll leap with the wind and I'll cover and share And at last I'll know you are asleep...

I remember when I heard the news on the radio...I couldn't believe it. Did they really say that Josh had died. He was so young and so talented. I was so lucky to have met Josh. He played at our radio station holiday concert back in '96. In the midst of all these rock star egos, here was Josh willing to do whatever we needed him to do. The band, who was suppose to go on first refused to go on that early. And while everyone was yelling at each other backstage trying to figure how to solve this problem, Josh simply got on stage and started playing for the audience. I know that doesn't soound like much. But it truely showed who he was. I have these pictures form the day at the radio station with us laughing and hanging out on top of the station van...everytime I look at them they bring tears to my eyes. He had such a good soul and made everyone around him feel special. He is truely missed.

Blessing to all! I just wanted to put out a post to let everyone know that I have been contacted regarding the 'Felt Like Making A Live Record.' I want to thank both Shay and Tony for contacting me, wishing to share the gift of Josh's music. It really does touch my heart deeply and (as I have said in emails to you both) reaffirms my faith that the kindness of strangers does still exist. To know that through the music and words of someone so spiritual, we can be brought together into friendships. It is through this sharing of both his music and his soul that we can keep his spirit alive. Again, thanks guys!!! To everyone else, take care and be well.
Mon Nov 14 20:34
Hi Josh: I haven't had a visit from you in a while - sure could use one. Like some many here, I think of you every day and am touched by the light and sweetness you shared with us all. Especially when I am quiet with my babies, I miss you big time! I wish you could have shared this part of my journey with me from the earthly plane. Love you.

Whoever reads this must love Josh and so I thought you'd appreciate this. I came across Inarticulate Nature Boy about 3 years ago. It wasn't until today that I found out that I became Josh's fan years after he had passed. His music was not posthumous to me, it was, and IS, very much alive and vibrant to me today. I just litened to Paint The Tree Green and had to look up this "Clayton-Felt" guy on the internet because I love his music so much. That CD has become a soundtrack to many important parts of my life over the last three years and has touched me. I just thought that you would want to know b/c his body may have passed but his spirit and music are very much alive. I never got the chance to meet him but I'm thankful that he was here. God Bless cip

Blessings to all. I am leaving a message hoping that someone may be able to help me. I, unfortunately, tried to purchase the 'Felt Like Making A Live Record' too late. They are all gone. If ANYONE has an extra copy they would be willing to sell, or knows where I may find one could you please email me at the address above? I will keep an eye on ebay, but thought that perhaps someone here may be of some assistance as well. Thank you very much and have a WONDERFUL day!

I fell in love with the song "Fell" when I was in college and my band was still together. We used to cover that song sometimes. So it was in my head the other day and I decided to record it for myself - at home, on a simple 4-track. Today I got out my old Human Cannonball CD, which I have never given the listen it deserves, and was playing it. Decided to try to find out something about School of Fish on the web. Now, like others, I am digesting the news of Josh's death, years after the fact. I feel a sense of sadness, but also a kind of painful-beautiful realization of a lot of things: the shortness and preciousness of Life, the beauty and realness that music adds to it, the importance and value of our music and our lives - and the relative unimportance of whether our actions, lives, and songs become well known by millions, deply loved by a small circle, or played by and for ourselves in small rooms. I never knew Josh, but his music was, and is, a part of my life and music. I hope and believe he is in a beautiful place. Rob Grapevine, Texas

I was just listening to my 'school of fish' cd and thought 'hmmm I'll go and check out what Josh is up to these days' obviously I'm feeling really shocked right now. I first discoverd SOF in 91/92. They supported Crowded House in Cambridge (U.K) (the night of my 21st bday) and I fell in love with them. I found out they were playing some gigs at clubs in London (U.K) and I went to them all. I got to meet them all at each one and I still have my autographed cd and my vinyl singles etc. I was so into this band. I played their cd constantly. I took my friends to one of the gigs and they met the band too. My friend Bet tripped Josh up as a joke and he smiled at us and we (being typical girls) thought he was gorgeous. I travelled around America in the June of 92 and I was so excited when I found a SOF demo cd in a shop in Santa Monica. I never got to see them again after that (how I wish the net was around back then). I bought their 2nd cd and only found out they'd split up when I recognised Michael Ward in a Wallflowers vid on mtv a while later. I still have snippets of SOF vids that I taped off MTV. I was so excited. I got sick that same yr (92) and was ill for a lot of my 20's. Following SOF round London is one of my happiest memories from before getting ill. I'm really really saddened by this news. Hope you're in a good place Josh. Fiona xx

John Gluth (
I was deeply saddened to hear about Josh, although I didn't learn of his passing until 2 years after the fact. It seems so senseless and tragic... Anyhow I met Josh back on August 21, 1996 in Charlotte NC. At the time, I was working at a local record store when this guy came into the store and began checking out our goods (such as any person does as they enter a record store). After about 10 minutes of searching, this guy holds up a CD and asks, "Why is this CD only $5.00 ?" I quickly retorted as any wise-cracking clerk would do and said something to the effect of, "Well, it could be one of a few different reasons. It's either a promo, it could be overstock and we're pricing them low to move them, it could be some unknown artist, or it could just suck." Well, the patron and I began filibustering about music there in the store when he finally says, "That's my CD, that's me." I quickly rebuffed and dismissed his remarks thinking that this guy is delusional. He later tells me that he is here in town doing a show and they comp him tickets to every venue but he doesn't know anybody here in town, and he asks me if I'd like to go to the show. Me thinking that this guy is just pulling my leg, I said sure...why not. He told me where the tickets would be waiting for me at and then he left the store. I, at first, dismissed this because the guy in the store *somewhat* resembled the picture of the guy on the CD cover, but not exact. I thought that I have nothing to lose but gas so after work, I grabbed a bite to eat and then I left for Ovens Auditorium. I reached the "Will Call" window and tell them my name and sure enough, there were 2 tickets for that evenings show. I was astonished, to say the least.... 6th row center, awesome seats (I still have the ticket stub too) Tori Amos was the main act and Josh was opening for her. (I'm not a huge Tori Amos fan so I was not too excited to go and see her) Josh came out, just him and his guitar, and he did an acoustical set. It was PHENOMENAL ! I still remember when he played "Soon Enough", I still get chills thinking about it. He played for about 45 minutes and then Tori came on and did her thing. I was just blown away by Josh though. He was amazing... The CD he asked about at the record store being $5.00 was a promo copy of "Inarticulate Nature Boy". In retrospect, I should have gotten him to sign the CD while he was there in the store but I at least own the CD that Josh handled and that we debated over. I may have only had a brush with him throughout the course of his lifetime, but he left an impression of a caring free spirit who would bend over backwards to help someone else out, even if he knew that person or not. He was kind and generous and he seemed like the kind of person that would be a great friend. I just wanted to share that with you guys..... Josh, you may be gone, but the memory and the music will live on forever. Thank you for touching my life........ John (Charlotte NC)

I became a School of Fish fan @ the age of 18 in 1991. I like many others, have spent much time listening to Josh's words and music. I am still an avid listener of School of Fish, and Josh's solo cd's. His music has touched not only my life, but my friends as well. Josh seems like he was/is amazing and I wish he could of stayed longer. I heard "3 strange days" on the radio, I wondered if there was a website up dedicated to Josh. I'm glad it's here, & I wanted to thank Josh, his friends & family for the amazing website. :-)

Seven years after my high school graduation, I'm just now starting to put together scrapbooks with all my pictures and mementos. The other day, I was going through some stuff from my junior year and I found a little piece of paper with a personalized signature from a singer named Josh Clayton-Felt. In the fall of 1996, two of my friends dragged me to a Tori Amos concert in Melbourne, Florida. As it was kind of far from our hometown, we got a room in what we later learned was the same hotel in which her entourage was staying. After the concert, we found ourselves riding the elevator with the man who had opened for Tori, Josh. I remember that he was so very kind. We chatted, he gave each of us autographs, and then we parted (he was only staying a few doors down the hall from us). So, when I found this autograph years later, I wanted to search online to see what he was up to these days. Imagine my shock and sadness. But reading about this life and even his tragic death, I feel very grateful that I got to meet him. He holds a special page in my scrapbook.
Wed Aug 31 13:11
Good afternoon. I have been trying to figure "3 Strange Days" out on guitar for ages! Does anyone know where I can find guitar tabs/sheet music for this or any other School of Fish/Josh Clayton-Felt songs? Thanks to Josh for his vision & thanks to the other fans for proving how timeless his message is!

I saw School Of Fish in 1991 at Mississippi Nights in St. Louis Mo. The performance sonically and visually made a great impact on me. I bought the cd and probably listened to it EVERY DAY for a good year or more. The music touched me on many levels. Every time my life seems to be faced with trials and tribulations I have turned to this cd. In fact, it even inspired me to play in my own band. I would think to myself from time to time how I wanted to write Josh and ask what the lyrics to some of the songs meant and what inspired the songs. Many of the songs always seemed to apply to my particular situation. Josh passing is a great loss, and I regret waiting too long to contact him and ask about the lyrics.

howdy....so i'm on a train (we know where this is going, don't we?) from Barcelona, Spain to Malaga (southern coast of spain)....a 12 hour ride, with amazing farmland, waterfalls, towns, and everything inbetween. At one stop, a very stern lady sat in the seat beside mine, and would glance bitterly my way if anything of mine passed over the imaginary line that divided her space from mine. Right as i'm starting to think "Gosh, what a ....", i see the little kid (about 3 years old) who is in the seat in front of mine looking through the space between the two seats, sticking his tongue out, laughing and in general just wanting to play. So of course we did. Very happy time. Of course, i thought of "Kid on the Train". And when he finally fell asleep, i dug out my i-pod and played it ("Kid.." and the acoustic version of "3 strange days"), watching the fields blur by. Thank u.

So strange. I was just about to search the Internet to see if I could find a copy of "What Good Is Heaven" my favorite of Josh's songs. For some I figured I'd check out the message board first. And there it is available on iTunes (Thanks Marilyn!) I haven't been able to get WGIH out of my head for a few days now. I guess I'm not the only one who needed to hear that song right now.
Sun Jul 17 07:50
Josh's family here. We're happy to tell you that four of Josh's songs, songs as yet unreleased or now difficult to find, are available for digital download. They are available now on iTunes until August 9, and after that on other digital sites as well. The songs are "Goodbye Green World," written and performed by Josh and Michael Ward in 1989 on their very first School of Fish demo; "Broken Arm," written and performed by Josh and Michael around the time of School of Fish's Human Cannonball Album; "What Good is Heaven," once available as an Inarticulate Nature Boy demo B-side, written and performed by Josh and Larry Goldings on Wurlitzer piano with Lily Hayden on the violin; and the School of Fish hit "Three Strange Days," in solo performance by Josh, opening for Tori Amos. This last has been available on the Live Album, but we're sad to say that CD is going out of print. We hope you enjoy the songs! Your caring means a lot to us.

Josh and I were pals in grade school. Cambridge Friends School. Mid/late 70s. I drove by his old house on Mt Auburn street the other day which brought back some memories. I was saddened to hear of his passing a while back. But I take some comfort in the postive impact he clearly had on people with his music and his character. Godspeed Josh and thanks for the fun times in our youth. -Matt Born and the entire Born Family.

TV KID (
I saw Josh and School of Fish in St. Louis, MO back around 1991 with a couple of friends at a tiny club near the Mississipp River. I bought the CD the next day, and I still have my concert T-Shirt from the show. All I can say is he was one the best song writers I've ever seen, heard, and followed. He's missed and my friends and I still talk about that show and we probably always will for years and years. That's saying something. Few people in the world are remembered that way and leave an impact like that on persons life. I was truly saddened about hearing of Josh's passing, but to his family and friends all I can say is that he is remembered and his music is still being heard and discovered by people around the world. Thanks Josh for all your great songs. Euphoria still takes me back to a time when I was young and everything was fun. I didn't even know Josh, but his music sure made a difference in my life.

Dear ones- to celebrate Josh's birthday tomorrow, webmaster Dene Wilby is going to post a piece Josh wrote called "Lesson of the Rainbow". Check out "Words from Josh". And in the coming month we're going to make available through digital downloads, with the help of Redeye, two Josh songs that are going to become hard to find. One song, with kind permission of co-writer and co-performer Larry Goldings, is "What Good is Heaven". The second, with kind permission of co-writer Michael Ward, is the solo version of "3 strange Days" that Josh did when he was opening for Tori Amos. Check out the "News" section in a few weeks, and we'll tell you how to access them. And let us know if there are any other Josh songs that are not available on his albums that you'd like to see released. Enjoy birthday pancakes! Love keeps us together. Josh's Mom

Ive been reading the entries and I can see most of the people on here are friends or relatives of josh's. looking at what an impact his music (which ive just hear recently) has had on me in the last few weeks as a person and as a musician, and also seeing the documentary on his life and his ups and downs along the way and how he touched everyone he seemed to come in contact with, i feel kind of ashamed that its only the music that makes me aware of his existance. I've lost a friend to a car crash and i know what its like when your driving back from the hospital passing people left and right and no one knows about the person you held so close. I wish i could hear more of what he had to say and I'm happy that you guys pressed on even after he died so that people like me can be reached by the music that he created. I'm proud to own his cd's. Thanks, Kyle

Blessings to all! Does this happen to anyone else besides me? I never had the opportunity in this life to have met Josh, but I feel a spiritual connection with him. Those little 'signs' that you get when you think of a loved one who has gone Home - those happen with Josh. I once came across a story of how he found an injured crow in the street and took it to an animal hospital. A few days later, I came across an injured baby bird that had no nest in sight, and I took it to an animal hospital. On the way home, I thought of what Josh had done with the crow, and how awesome it must have been to get that close to a crow (I am a huge lover of all animals, especially crows), when at that very moment of thought, my eyes happened to wonder upon a telephone pole and at the very top was a crow. It was the only one in the area. Then there are the times when I am outside walking and listening to his music, and I will have a dragonfly land right beside me. Mind you, I have not seen a real dragonfly since I was a kid. Now, I see them when I think of him. I do not believe in conincidences. Things in life are destined to happen by a higher power. We are all brothers and sisters sharing a common bond of unity through love. And after reading how people see dragonflies when they think of him, makes me wonder if his spirit is actually stopping by to just say 'thank you' for being a fan. I dunno, I probably sound crazy, but am I alone??? The best of blessings and love to you all.

Just picked up Human Cannonball again because my friend that I loaned my old copy to won't return it (can you blame him?). Josh, your music is a treasure that I keep rediscovering over and over. In an age of commercialized, dispensable music that will leave no imprint on the face of time, your work continues to speak to me, regardless of circumstances or the passage of years. With children of my own now, it is a privilege and source of joy for me to see my 4-year old daughter and my 2-year old son dancing and singing along to your voice and music. Still in "Euphoria" after all these years. Thank you Josh. You are deeply missed.

Hey Josh. Haven't been on the site in a while but your music is still an inspiration. Musically I've finally completed my little home studio and it wasn't complete without hanging up some of the promo posters I have from the Inarticulate Nature Boy Tour. You signed them vibes, vibes, vibes. The area where I live is also very wooded. I always look forward to the summertime because when I'm outside in my backyard playing ball with my son alot of Dragonfly's come around. They always bring a smile to my face.

Josh, Just wanted to say hi. I found "Spirit Touches Ground" again. My wife brought it to me at the hospital. I forgot all about this CD and it was like visiting an old friend. As I was lying on the bed with my 2 1/2 yr old daughter lying next to me, we listened to this CD and she enjoyed it. It is one of the good things I get to pass on to the next generation before I leave. Gotta rest, medicine's got me worn out and tired. Take care wherever you are. Hopefully I won't see you too soon. Peace Jr.

I just found this cd where I work. Im a garbage man - I can't believe someone threw this out. I guess it brings new meaning to 'one man's trash is another man's treasure'. I listen to few albums in their entirety, and this one I listened to twice back to back. Really good music. Im not familiar with the artist or his previous works, but will explore this site to order more. Thanks

...I didn't finish. I'm so sorry. I hit enter by accident. There is more of Josh that came through in the reading. Michael, the medium, asked if Josh has blue eyes because he was looking at someone with blue eyes there. The name Frank came up, which I can't relate to. Michael said there was an east coast feel with this. Then Michael asked me, "Do you like Native American stuff?" I said that was Josh. He said Josh was showing me a Native American behind me and introducing me to him. He was a Guide or acting like a Guide. Josh said that this is the "draw", the "drumming" to his music. Josh was relaying that we are all connected and explaining how sometimes you don't get to connect with someone you have a kindred spirit with...maybe you knew the person in a previous life. Then Michael asked, if everyone thought Josh had a lot to offer and that it was sad he died so soon - that he offered a lot and could have been famous. He said Josh was saying that maybe it will be a spur to others to move on - give them a boost. I spoke of April 22nd being Earth day (to see if the #22 was a connection to that). Josh relayed a yes. Michael said Josh is very much into symbology and signs and talks like that in his music in fact - that it is kind of mystical. My not really knowing Josh and him coming through was a message of "being outside the box." Josh was explaining we are all like little units - units of the whole. Whatever you can do to bring in light and love, wherever you are in the world, helps higher beings, which helps higher beings and so on. It is like a "Transformer." The laws of Karma are making sure everything runs perfectly, right down to little old you. Michael asked me if there is a Lynn or a Lilly. I don't see that relating to me. I truly think that was Josh trying to communicate his mother's name. I didn't think of this until today, after hearing the tape of my reading. Michael said "He is cool. I like this guy." He said he is a "very gentle guy." Towards the very end, Josh told Michael to tell me I like ice-cream. I love ice-cream. I had just had a dream about buying ice-cream, which Michael said this was a validation of a real dream. I wanted to share this experience since I feel as though this is what Josh would want. This was a spiritual awakening for me. Michael said you have to live in the moment - that a spiritual person does this. He said when he talks about this, it isn't coming from him, but the person or people coming through. He stressed meditation and concentration in order to feel this great love and spiritual connection. The medium's wife sketched a guy with "dred locks" she wrote (which I felt was Josh with his curly hair), a cat (which one of mine just passed away - she asked if it was fluffy white, which she was), the car I drive, and a dolphin. I couldn't figure the dolphin connection, but she said it was maybe a connection to earth day (which is also my b-day). This is the only way I knew how to get this across. Thank you. Kim

Josh came through on a reading I had a week ago from today. I really did not know Josh at all, but I had seen him perform several times over a course of many years. I didn't have to know him to understand what a great individual and talent is was and still is. I admired him, greatly and needed a spiritual boost in my life. Who would be a more spiritual person to come through in a reading? I met with a psychic medium who offered me much validation as to this being Josh coming through. He said this was Josh's way of "giving a big thank you" to his love ones and that he is over there and fine - that this is a spiritual thing. I will share was was relayed to me for Josh's family and friends. The medium, Michael, asked if there was a person I was hoping would be there. He asked if it was a "J" name, like Joe, John. He asked this person coming through how old he was. The J name person said he is a bit older than 30, but in his thirties. Then Michael asked if the name is Josh. He asked if he was in a small band and that Josh said it wasn't a well known band. Michael asked me if he was ill because Josh said he was ill. Then he asked, "Was this cancer with Josh?" He said he could feel cancer with him. Then he asked if there was a vigil for him - a lighting of candles where everybody got together. Then Michael asked me if he has dark hair because Josh was saying his hair is dark. He asked me if there was another "J" name in the band. Michael said that I couldn't imagine this and that he couldn't come up with these things if Josh weren't standing there. Michael asked if his hair was short, average length. Then he asked if he was a guitarist. Josh said he plays guitar. Then Michael said "He sings he said." "Rock Music." Michael asked me if he is 33. Josh said he was 33 when he died. Michael said this was my validation to the spirit world - that my family arranged this. Michael asked if Josh does "spiritual songs" because Josh said he does spiritual stuff. Josh told Michael I had a picture of him (which I did have in my purse and did not mention until later). Michael asked if he is good looking and before I could speak he said, "He said he is." Michael said there is a fun nature/element to him, a light heartedness. He said there's also a very serious side. Then he was saying something about a Billy or Bill or Bobby, which I can't relate to my family. Michael asked me if there was an album. He said I have his music. He asked if I lived near the beach or ocean, and if I was listening to his music by the beach. I didn't recall this and I don't live by the beach, so maybe this is linked with Josh or someone he knows. He asked if he is fairly tall and lean. He said he is at least 5'11. He asked me if he has whispies on his chin. The medium thought it such a strange request that I asked Josh to come through. Josh brought up the number 21 or 22. Michael asked if I was ever engaged (no). Michael asked, "Does he have a girlfriend." He said maybe the 21 or 22 is a date and it could relate to her - "Maybe he was engaged." He asked if there was a way to get this message to her. Michael said he knows that Josh would like to say hello to his band. Then he said that there is a brother and a sister to him. The medium asked if he was English because Josh was telling him, "Cheers." He said he pictured the Cheers in Boston (and the show, which he never thinks of) and that there could be a Boston connection. I knew that is where Josh was from so I offered that at that point. This is where Michael said this is a big Thank You from Josh to his loved ones. Josh brought up the 21 and 22 again. Then Michael asked about a "B" name like Buzz or Buddy.

Dearest Josh, you become more vivid with time. This is something I didn't expect. There are always lovely surprises. Love forever, your Mom.

Heya Josh - been thinking of you a lot lately. I'm getting to see Renee and Leslie here in Portland this weekend, so I'm waxing nostalgic to all my friends and getting them to go. Your circle of friends were always impressive, and I miss hearing that group effort and energy when they'd jump on stage with you. Thank you for sharing the stage so that I could get to know them too. Best always - Sarah

Hello everybody, I'm a fan of Josh' music and voice since I heard "3 strange days" the first time in a german radio programme in the beginning of the 90's. Thank you Josh that give us so many good and brilliant songs, which help me sometimes very much, especially "Building Atlantis" from "Spririt touches ground". I can't say why, but this two are among the best songs, I ever heard! Thank you for writing them!

Hi Josh, Just thinking about you. Glad to see that INB is back in print - so many folks need to hear it; I'll do my part to spread the word. Paul
