A New Kind of Praise & Worship Music With Josh Garrels
Indiana singer songwriter Josh Garrels is redefining Christian contemporary music with emotion-filled vocals and thoughtful, introspective lyrics that often ask more questions than provide answers. Pulling from a diverse palette of influences ranging from gentle indie folk to East coast hip hop to riot-fueling punk, Garrels' entrance into the Christian faith in his early 20s pulled all of these vibrant threads together. Catch the gifted troubadour as he hits the road to perform from career-defining albums Over Oceans and The Sea Between amongst others.
Although inspired by many different genres, Garrels funnels his spiritual poetry into a folk-based, acoustic and often orchestral sound that underpins his rich, soulful vocals. When it comes to live performances the muso's past as a preacher comes into play, lending his performances an air of authenticity and earnestness that is often lost when music and evangelicalism collide.
