Bright & Lyon Present Joshua James

Apr 7, 2017 @ 8:00 pm  —  Apr 7, 2017 @ 10:00pm

Raised in hard-bitten Nebraska, Joshua James’ work reflects a distinctly American ache, a yearning for a big sky and an open road.

Strangely familiar, yet refreshingly innovative, James’ songs are devastating in their honesty, working with themes that are intermittently elating, melancholic, and transcendent. He doesn’t so much perform these songs, as he does let them posses him, allowing his voice to be throttled from a husky whisper to a full-bodied roar.

His original release of The Sun is Always Brighter on iTunes reached #1 on their Folk Album list, and he landed on Paste Magazine’s ‘Next 25 Artists You Need To Know’ list.

Having toured with John Mayer, David Gray, Ani DiFranco, Third Eye Blind and Brett Dennen, we’re thrilled to have his next stop be at The Word Barn.
