The Past. The Present. The Future. This record is in some 
ways unique. One that bridges both history, and what is to 
come. All highlighted in a musical collection that also 
reflects the current day, and the here and now for the artist. 
This is the world of Josh Rouse circa 2011: An American,
 born in the Midwest, who has over his life called many 
parts of the United States home, but an American now 
living a more cosmopolitan existence in modern Europe. 
The common thread through this rich journey has been the 
music – distinctive, appealing, and much celebrated across 
the globe. And so the life of Josh Rouse, of the Artist, is 
reflected in this set of new recordings, a new album,
 his ninth overall, and with the simple title, ‘Josh Rouse and 
the Long Vacations’.

This album you are holding was recorded in Spain, but 
decidedly not “Spanish” in feel, or not, as some might say, 
ethnic. This is an album that, in some fashion, reflects a
 reprise of the singer-songwriter’s roots. It encapsulates a 
past for Rouse that is steeped in that American Midwest, 
infused with the spirit of the endless plains and a homespun 
existence in Nebraska. And a past also touched by the 
American South – one with a distinctive friendly nature, 
like a warm hug by a lake on a glorious summer evening. It 
reflects a life growing up with the smooth uplifting sounds 
of early ‘70s AM radio. The soft rock sounds of the
 Artist’s youth. That is the past.
