Joshua Bassett’s latest offering ‘Only a Matter of Time’ is the second track to be revealed from his highly anticipated self-titled debut EP which is currently out now via Warner Records. If we could describe the track solely through one word, it will no doubt be ethereal. From the very first verse we can witness Bassett belting out his powerful vocals over the warm piano combined with delicately plucked acoustic guitar. 


Widely known for playing the character of ‘Ricky Bowen’ on Disney+ original show ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’, Joshua Bassett has without any doubt transformed into an epitome of talent within the entertainment industry. Bassett possesses the kind of voice which captivates the listeners throughout the duration of the song. The track which initiates with a blissful and magnetizing music, slowly unfolds some extremely personal lyrics.

On the making of the track, Joshua commented, “I wrote this song in the summer of 2020 in a moment in time where social media was bringing a lot of darkness to my life. It was healing to put my phone down, turn off the noise and just write. There’s good that comes from social media, but it’s also become a place where people can say anything about anyone, no matter how false or damaging with no accountability. We’ve gotta be much kinder to each other and recognize there are real people behind the screens!”

Bassett’s immense music potential blended together with the emotional and heartfelt lyrics that he penned down as he urges kindness in the current face of indiscriminate social media noise, delivers a piece which drives for perfection. 

‘Only a Matter of Time’ offers an ideal glimpse into Bassett’s vigorous artistic approach.
