Joshua James is an American rock and folk musician currently based out of Provo, Utah.  Often compared to Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joe Purdy, Bright Eyes or Ray LaMontagne, James is known for his intimate vocal style and bittersweet lyrics, often dealing with tragedy, religion and substance abuse.

His original digital release of The Sun is Always Brighter on iTunes reached #1 on the service’s Folk Album list in 2007 and sold in excess of 25,000 copies by the end of 2008.The album caught the attention of the indie folk scene, with Paste Magazine naming him one of their “Next 25 Artists You Need To Know” in their September 2008 issue, prompting artists such as John Mayer, David Gray, Ani DiFranco, and Brett Dennen to have him support their North American tours.

NPR has also recently cited Joshua James in one of their “Song of the Day” publishings. They featured his “The New Love Song” as one of the best new songs from a previously unknown artist in a long time.

Joshua headed back to the studio in late 2007 to record his second album, entitled Build Me This, which was released digitally on September 8, 2009, and physically on September 22, 2009, on Intelligent Noise/Northplatte Records. Paste Magazine dubbed the new work “phenomenal.”iTunes also dubbed Build Me This one of the “Best of 2009″ Indie Spotlight Singer/Songwriter albums.

He performed at SXSW Music Festival, Bonaroo, and XPoNential Music Festival, Fork Fest, etc. in 2010 in addition to a US tour and shows in Japan and UK. James has also performed at Lollapalooza in 2009.

Variety Magazine calls James “a young Midwestern singer-songwriter who writes hard-bitten songs of family tragedies and sings them in a voice that’s as sun-bleached and wind-battered as a Nebraska cornfield.”

A cover of Herman’s Hermits’ “No Milk Today” featured in the Season 3 premier of Sons of Anarchy. James’ own song “Coal War” was featured in the Season 4 premiere of Sons of Anarchy.

James came to Faultline Studios on his way through San Francisco on tour to record a new version of an old song “Doctor” with Starita courtesy of Root Music. Starita used various recording techniques that set the mood of the deeply moving poetry of Joshua. There were times when every hand was on deck to clap, stomp and contribute to the recording. The entire session was shot in HD video by Volta Videography that is soon to be released on Joshua’s Root Music Bandpage. Be sure to check updates so you can get a glimpse of how the magic happened in the studio!

Root Music and Faultline Studios decided to team up and do a show with the band once word was out they were coming to town. Previously, Tyler was on the road without his band for a month doing shows with Jeff Beck and keeping busy writing new tunes for the 4 piece. The day after the  Root Music/ Faultline show, Starita and the guys hit the studio to record a new song that the other members of the band had never even heard until they entered the Live room. This obviously was not an issue as the band ripped though an entire day of tracking laying down every part leaving the song only to be mixed. This magical day was fully documented by Volta Videography and will be released on the band’s Root Music Bandpage. Be sure to check their page for the release and catch a glimpse of what life is like in the studio with Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown.
