Josh Wilson See You Album

Press Release: 
Nashville, TN…Dec. 14, 2010… Sparrow Records’ critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Josh Wilson will unveil his third album titled See You, slated to release February 8, 2011. This is the follow-up album to his acclaimed sophomore release Life Is Not A Snapshot that garnered year end awards with the hit track “Before the Morning,” taking the No. 4 spot on Billboard’s Year-End Christian Songs chart and established Wilson as Billboard’s 8th most played artist on Christian Radio.
Bringing all his musical influences to bear—pop, folk, rock, classical, hymns, and more, See You paints a refreshingly relevant musical palate that frames its message beautifully. With a probing spiritual curiosity and imaginative, self-examining lyrics, the album solidifies Wilson’s place among the finest song crafters of his day.

Wilson stretched himself musically throughout the entire recording process, mastering over 20 instruments outside of the typical grand piano, keyboard, classical, acoustic and electric guitar.  Such distinctive instruments consisted of the ukulele, hammered dulcimer and glockenspiel, just to name a few. It was this unique process added to the entire experience of making this record—from days of seclusion writing new songs, to fine tuning every melodic component in studio, that pushed Wilson to a new level of authenticity and creativity in his life’s work.
For this project, Wilson teamed up with sought-after producer Matt Bronleewe (Natalie Imbruglia, Jars of Clay, Selena Gomez) and after months in the studio, the end result is what many are calling a 12-track masterpiece. In its entirety, See You is a vivid collection of songs that focus on the evidence of God at work in people’s lives.
“Something I’ve been learning over the past decade is that when we want to see God, we have to depend less on our physical eyes and more on the Holy Spirit,” says Wilson. “It’s the subtle, still small voice of God.”
“I Refuse,” the first single from the project impacting radio now, evolved as Wilson was reading David Platt’s perspective-shattering book, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream. Simultaneously, the 1000-year flood hit Nashville, devastating entire communities on May 1, 2010, giving Wilson a very personal and real situation from which to draw from as he completed the track.

 “Once the flood hit, the temptation was to simply pray and ask God to rally the community and bring other people to help,” Wilson explains. “I was using prayer as an excuse to not do anything myself. But as a Christian that’s not enough. We’re the hands and feet of Jesus; we’re supposed to do something. So that phrase came back to me... I refuse to do nothing.”
Wilson recently wrapped the first leg of the “Story of Your Life Tour” supporting GRAMMY ® nominated singer/songwriter Matthew West, and will reunite with West for the spring continuation of that tour.

My Thoughts: The album was released on February 8th and is available now.  I'm late on this review due to illness but it's never to late to discover good music! 


When I was asked to review this album, I did not realize this was the Josh Wilson who does the song Savior, Please.  I first heard that song when my friend Hannah sang it in church and I immediately fell in love. When I realized this was the same artist, I was even more excited to hear his new album.  


The sound is a soft folk rock/country and is just right for a mellow day and a mellow, reflective mood.  His voice is pleasant and soothing and the lyrics inspiring. The song Know by Now is a quirky tune that I would love to sing in church sometime myself.  I completely relate to the idea of forgetting God's faithfulness, you'd think that I'd know by now! This speaks to what is going on in my life this very week and makes me grin, shrug and thank God that he loves me anyway.  


Although I wouldn't call it a new favorite, I enjoyed the album and would encourage you to check it out if you enjoy the sound and style.  You can listen to samples on his site: Josh Wilson Music




*Disclosure: I was able to listen to a digital copy of the album via The Media Collective, for review purposes.*
