5 Questions with Noisetrade

Derek Webb and the folks at Noisetrade have been kind enough to help promote my album "Love & War & The Sea In Between" through their "tip based" music download site.  I initially made the album available through Noisetrade thinking it would just be another supplementary venue to make my work available for free.  What I didn't anticipate was the listener response and interaction that Noisetrade had been curating long before I ever arrived.  With over 18,000 downloads through the Noisetrade site alone, I have a newfound respect for their approach and values.  Recently they asked me 5 thoughtful questions, and they've since posted the interview on their blog.  You can read the full interview in full HERE.

Hey Josh, I've been really blessed by your music. I love that you speak boldly of your faith, yet not compromising in complexity or beauty. Reading your interview and simply from listening to your music, you seem like a quality dude. May the Lord bless you and keep you.

I just wanted to comment and let you know how beautiful your music is. It captures the weight of the world, the visceral truth of the chasm between us and Him and beautifully elucidates the glory of life in Christ. It's hard to express in words how deeply your music has touched me. I frequently find myself on the edge of tears of wonder. Thank you, thank you for using that which God has given you for His glory and for the blessing of His people and the world. May God bless the work of your hands and your voice and further His Kingdom through your beautiful simple gift of words in music.
