"'Honk (If You're Tonky)' spoke very loudly to me right off the bat as an anthem for guys," JOSHUA shares. "It speaks to the misunderstood side of men, that makes us rough around the edges while carrying the burden of a big heart and just wanting to live in harmony with yourself. What better than an 'anthem' for a first single?"
The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist--who plays acoustic and electric guitar, piano and a littlepercussion on the album--also executively produced this very personal album. Three years since his last album release with Steel Magnolia, JOSHUA is looking forward to the next chapter of his career. "It feels like a long time coming. It's like moving into a new home or getting a new car; you have strong sentiment and deep attachment for the old car, but are eager to get behind the wheel of the new one." THE HEALING is a candid reflection of his life and the changes he's experienced since first arriving on the scene. Check out this album promo video: http://youtu.be/zfv5ikbvP5w.
Of THE HEALING, JOSHUA explains, "I feel like at this point in my life as an artist, I can't be anything but candid. The record certainly reflects my headspace over the last few years and tells the story of what I've gone through, especially the title track of the record, 'The Healing.'"
