Josh Wilson self-titled
"Josh is the real deal in an airbrushed, over-edited world."
Josh Wilson isn’t just one of the nicest guys in Nashville; he’s also one of the most talented. And that’s saying a lot in a city chock full of musical geniuses. This humble singer/songwriter would not count himself among the elite, but his latest self-titled release proves that Josh Wilson will soon be a household name. That is, if he’s not already.
A mash-up of his first two Sparrow Records releases—Trying to Fit the Ocean in a Cup (2008) and Life Is Not a Snapshot (2009)—the self-titled compilation includes my favorite Wilson song, “Savior, Please” and his first #1 hit, “Before the Morning.” The album also contains fan favorites like Wilson’s incredible instrumental version of “Amazing Grace” (Note: Even more incredible performed at a live show), “3 Minute Song” and “Sing.” Of course, it’s hard to pick out a favorite on an album full of all my favorite Josh Wilson songs.
Let’s me level with you—Josh
is the real deal in an airbrushed, over-edited world. Not only is his music
extraordinary, his love for God
and people shines through his persona and radiates in his craft. I cannot
more highly recommend Josh Wilson for people of all ages.
