Radiance & Reason
The process of expression comes in the purest form when we allow our passions, insight, and vulnerability to pour out through our gifts. Finding our gifts often times leads to discovering what we long to express. For those who have heard Josh Johnson know his gift is easy to define. Whether in a CD player, a local coffee house, or a sold out auditorium, Josh's music has a unique way of moving past the surface and into the heart. His mix of powerful vocals, smooth melodies, and insightful lyrics distinguishes his music from the crowd of solo artists. Josh recently moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University and continue pursuing his rising music career. Over the past year, Josh has been trying to express what he has learned, lost, and gained from stepping into a new and challenging stage of life. It all came flowing out in the form of his newest EP, Radiance and Reason. Josh joined up with producer Mark Wagner to collaborate on a project that captures Josh's expression through his wonderful gift of music. The blend of piano, guitar, and soft percussion allows Josh's rich and soothing vocals to soar on the tracks. After watching a live show, listening to an earlier album, or simply spending time with Josh, people quickly begin to see how much older he is than his years. He has impressively, after only 19 years, found a passion that utilizes the gifts God gave him to speak in a way that others can both understand and relate. Josh Johnson is a down to earth, amusing guy who has found meaning through his faith that allows him to live life to what appears to be the fullest potential. And in the midst of his living, we can all be thankful for the way he has chosen to express himself in the purest of ways... D. Teague.
