Dun learned how to play the drums at a young age, but wasn’t really allowed to listen to secular music by his parents, so he would sneak to the music store once a week. He hid albums under his bed, and listened to bands such as Green Day. He was given Christian alternative songs, and later worked at the Guitar Center for three years. There he met former Twenty One Pilots drummer Chris Salih.

In 2010, Josh joined House of Heroes after he was recommended by drummer Colin Rigsby, who wanted to take a break from the band to spend time with his family. He joined the House of Heroes tour for seven months, and then Rigsby returned to the band. Dun was then invited by Chris Salih to go to a Twenty One Pilots show in 2011. He listened to the original demo CD of the band, and met Tyler Joseph whom he befriended. Eventually Salih along with Nick Thomas left Twenty One Pilots, and this led to Dun leaving his Guitar Center job to play with Tyler – he played one song and then the show was cancelled by the local police. After this event, he would become the official drummer of Twenty One Pilots, and joined the band for their second studio album entitled “Regional at Best”. They also signed under Fueled by Ramen which is a subsidiary of Atlantic Records.

In 2013, Twenty One Pilots released their third album entitled “Vessel” and two years later, released the fourth album called “Blurryface”, which was way ahead of its intended release date. However, Josh’s net worth was growing steadily.

For his personal life, it is known that Dun was in a relationship with singer Debby Ryan from 2013 for a year before they broke up. He is a Christian and has mentioned that he enjoys playing the drums on a nightly basis. He has a tattoo of a tree on his right arm which is about his beliefs, but he doesn’t elaborate on the tattoo’s meaning. He also has an X tattoo behind his right ear as a symbol to their fans in Columbus, and also has the same tattoo on his body.
