Even when writing songs about the most serious of subjects, singer/songwriter Josh Wilson’s sense of humor is always fully intact. His songs reflect this combination with the heartfelt strains of breakthrough single “Savior, Please,” coupled with his all-too-relatable musings on the sometimes-unpleasant subject of finances (or the lack thereof) on “Dear Money.” Josh's deadpan sense of humor, not to mention a crop of cleverly conceived songs, makes his a stand-out amongst a crowd.
Growing up in Lubbock, Texas, Josh rarely remembers a day that didn’t involve music—listening to it, playing it or otherwise. By age 7, Josh’s appetite for all things musical wasn’t simply limited to one instrument. After taking piano lessons, he also added drums and guitar to his growing collection of musical competencies.
As he continued to hone his skills, it didn’t surprise anyone, (including himself), when Josh moved to Nashville for further musical training.“I’ve always been a big believer in pursuing what you’re passionate about,” Josh shares. “I think God gives us all passions and talents, and ultimately, He wants us to use those for His glory. And since I happen to love music, I guess I always knew I’d do something with it.”
After releasing a successful self-titled album in 2010 showcasing his single "Before The Morning," Josh released an album in February of 2011 entitled See You, featuring the song "I Refuse," which was inspired by the aftermath of the storms that flooded the city of Nashville, Tennessee in the spring of 2010. "I realized after a while that I was using my own prayers as a defense against having to do anything myself," reflected Josh. "I can't do everything, but I refuse to do nothing."
Josh recently released a Christmas album titled Noel (October 9, 2012), which features Christmas classics as well as original songs written by artist himself. The singer will also be embarking on the Noel Tour, performing in select cities during the holiday season.
Josh is also gearing up for the release of his upcoming album Carry Me (2013), which features his brand new single, "Carry Me." A release date for the new record has yet to be announced.
