Josh Billings moved to Vancouver from the Twin Cities in January 2021. He has been involved in music since second grade when he started taking piano lessons. He played in the inaugural chime choir at his home church before playing in the handbell choir. He then continued to play in the handbell ensemble of Concordia University St. Paul for four years. He graduated with a degree in K-12 Vocal Music Education in the spring of 2016. After a year off from playing bells, he became a member of Bells of the Lakes based in Minneapolis before moving and then becoming a ringing member of Bells of the Cascades.
Josh is now a board member of BOC. Outside of ringing, Josh recently found a job working for Loomis in Portland. He always enjoys playing the piano, going for hikes, or just hanging out with friends. He is looking forward to everything that the Portland/Vancouver area has to offer.
