Josh Rouse + Support
Born in Nebraska, but with a sound forged in Nashville, Josh Rouse is enjoying a ‘streak of excellence’ (Allmusic.com) right now. Since his breakthrough album 1972 (released 2003), his ‘straightforward, warm-blooded pop’ (Pitchfork) has gone from strength to strength. When he lends his mercurial falsetto to tear-soaked lyrics, Rouse conjures a lush sound that welcomes the listener like an old friend.
You don’t have to work hard to enjoy Rouse’s music. His songs present themselves to you with an open heart, an innate intelligence and an absolute lack of pretension. They are clear-eyed, empathetic and penetrating. His most recent release, The Embers of Time, is one of his strongest—Rouse (now living in Spain) called it ‘my surreal, ex-pat, therapy record’
