PERFORMING AN ACOUSTIC SET AT MIDWEST AND WEST COAST VENUES
Singer/Songwriter To Join Gray For Two Performances
At Los Angeles Wiltern Theatre On December 9th and 10th
In 2007, Singer/Songwriter Joshua James created a buzz by selling over 12,000 cds and 30,000 singles worldwide via iTunes through the digital release of his debut record. Now as 2007 comes to a close, James will be able to reach a new audience as he opens for David Gray and readies himself for the national release of The Sun Is Always Brighter on Intelligent Noise Records in March, 2008.
Raised in the heartland of Lincoln, Nebraska, Joshua spent most of his teenage years traversing through the local skate scene. At nineteen he spent two years traveling through South America, spending most of his time in Venezuela. Seeing the culture of another part of the world is always an eye opening experience and this trip seemed to awaken the inner voice that is now prevalent in Joshua’s songs. Soon after, he moved to Utah where he became a staple on the Salt Lake City and Provo music scenes. His songs made their way onto the internet and caught the attention of Los Angeles producer Shannon Edgar and the rest is history.
Joshua James’ “New Love Song” was recently chosen for the Schweppes advertising campaign in Spain (featuring Adrian Brody) and his “Soul and the Sea” track was used on BMI’s Sundance Film Festival sampler in 2007. He recently completed a national tour and spent three months this summer opening some dates for John Mayer, Paolo Nutini, Brett Dennen and Eric McKeown. With the true gift he possesses as an artist and the passion and ambition he has for his musical calling, it is clear that Joshua James will continue to convert audiences for years to come.
