Drawing on musical influences as diverse as pop, folk, and good old-fashioned rock 'n' roll, Josh Wilson's Life Is Not A Snapshot creates a rollicking atmosphere of electrically charged sonic satisfaction. From the jangling guitars on "Sing," to the thought-provoking cadence of "Before The Morning" and the Beatle-esque strains of "Do You Want To Know," Josh creates melodic flights of fancy that take you on a journey beyond what is to what should be. Fans will be compelled to sing along with his little-bit-rock 'n' roll treatment of "Listen," tap their toes to "How To Fall," and ponder along with the intimate ballad, "Right in Front of Me." On his richly textured, gently nuanced performance of the world's most famous hymn, "Amazing Grace," Josh Wilson directs listeners beyond the performance and toward the Giver of all good gifts. "We may live in snapshot moments," Josh says, "but those moments are not Life.
Life is not one point in time but all of the points in time between drawing our first and last breaths. Because we have experienced the faithfulness of God in the past we can be secure in the present and trust in the One who holds the future." There is a school of thought that dictates what a typical rock star bio should look like. Open with a snappy quote to catch the reader's attention. Include a laundry list of accolades, weighty references to his current standing on the album sales and radio charts as well as testimonials from well-respected industry insiders regarding his future greatness.
Convince the reader that the artist in question is successful, talented and - in the case of Christian rock stars -considerably more spiritually creative than the average Joe who occupies the pew next to you on any given Sunday. Josh Wilson simply smiles and shakes his head at the absurdity of it all. You see, Josh Wilson is not a rock star - never has been; doesn't intend to be. So if you are looking for one, you'll just have to look someplace else.Make Josh Wilson Playlist
