serpentwithfeet (aka Josiah Wise), is an experimental musician based in New York City in Brooklyn. Wise released the EP Blisters in 2016, his debut studio album soil in 2018, his second EP Apparition in 2020, and his second studio album Deacon in 2021.

Aside from his compelling all-round creativity and unique voice, Heritage Orchestra were drawn to work with Josiah after hearing his song Four Ethers which sampled Hector Berlioz’ Symphony Fantastique. Being from New York also lended itself to him appearing at our BBC Prom at the Royal Albert Hall  New York: Sound of a City.
