Description

Joshua James has been writing & singing songs for only 6 yrs, but the 25yr old heartland poet has the perspective of a wise, old soul.

On his 2nd album Build Me This, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed The Sun is Always Brighter, produced by industry veteran Shannon Edgar, James expands his musical palette to foreboding doom-laden hard rock.  Progressing from folkish harmonies, to country twang, world beats & southern home rock while further exploring themes of spiritual searching. Possessing a whispery & intimate vocal style that works its way into the ear peacefully & directly, Joshua James is pitched midway between seminal influences like Bob Dylan & Neil Young.

“I find solace and beauty in darkness & depression,” admits James, who grew up in his native Lincoln, Nebraska, skateboarding & sneaking listens to music his parents banned, like Jim Morrison & The Doors, Led Zeppelin & Pink Floyd, “But there are contrasts to everything. You have to combine the sweet & salty, the ugly and beautiful. Music is very therapeutic for me. It’s all about making a connection with humanity, with the audience, in ways that I normally wouldn’t be able to.”

Over the past 3 yrs James has been doing just that. His debut was the #1 Folk Album on iTunes & 'FM Radio' a song about a childhood friend coping with the death of his father, amassed more than 150,000 downloads as part of an iTunes promotion. In addition to performances at Sundance, SXSW & CMJ, James has toured with John Mayer, David Gray & Ani DiFranco, winning legions of fans along the way.
