Joshua James doesn’t just bare his feelings in his new album “My Spirit Sister”, he weaves an eggshell-fragile sonic tapestry of catharsis and craftsmanship. This is an album brimming with plaintive and personal truths that often seem too difficult and painful to comfortably share. Joshua James reedy signature vocals, angular and uncertain, invite the listener's attention like a sensitive and very embarrassing scar, sneaking into the psyche by the back door.
Joshua James' new album looks into the darkness that we all flirt with, the things we think and dissect through our internal monologues but rarely share with others. Questioning core beliefs, faith in the micro and the macro, being uncertain. These are tenets of James' songwriting, and his life, and on his upcoming dark Americana album My Spirit Sister he looks to continue facing the unknown with a rabid curiosity.
