Josh Rouse at HiLo in North Adams December 15th
Josh Rouse will be playing the HiLo North Adams on December 15. He’s touring this winter in support of his first-ever original holiday album, The Holiday Sounds of Josh Rouse, which just released via Yep Roc Records.
All Songs Considered featured the album recently, comparing it to Paul Simon. Acclaimed singer/songwriter Josh Rouse creates an effortless blend of folk, pop and rock, with beautiful harmonies, infectious melodies and transportive, emphatic storytelling. The Holiday Sounds of Josh Rouse offers his fresh take on holiday music, with the kind of catchy, upbeat instrumentation that makes these songs enjoyable year round, yet still allows them to fit comfortably alongside seasonal classics.
Over the last two decades, Josh Rouse has become one of this generation’s most revered songwriters, garnering positive coverage from press including Associated Press, American Songwriter, NPR Music, BrooklynVegan and more. Forbes has called him “a masterful songwriter,” and Paste Magazine declared “His knack for setting a simple feeling to a breezy melody shines through again and again.” While his 2018 release Love In The Modern Age pushed Rouse’s sound into new sonic territory, The Holiday Sounds of Josh Rouse is a welcome return to form with nine songs written over the last decade and recorded in Nashville, TN with the same musicians off his breakout release 1972.
