“‘Harmony’ was recorded in two parts.” Josh says of the process making the album. “Before the pandemic we recorded about five songs, with the full intention of making this an album of classics that I love and have always wanted to sing. We were recording and finding songs between concerts and fully expected to continue doing that for the next couple of months.”
“Then, sound was replaced with solitude. To have nothing but space, and to be sharing in a collective global tragedy, changed everything. Suddenly I was not steering the ship confidently on course. The waves had to take me to, hopefully, some sunlight. The result is an album that began to take a new shape.”
“‘Harmony‘ also has two original songs that I was not expecting to write. These songs were written and mostly recorded in the corner of my bedroom during lockdown and while they may not fit a style continuity of the project I originally had in mind, they fit what has been in my heart this very moment and are bursting with my hope for the future.
“It is with such immense gratitude that I get to release ‘Harmony’ to you now. I hope that every ounce of the love and healing I experienced recording it finds its way to you too.”
