Artist: Josh Wilson
Album: That Was Then, This Is Now
Label: Sparrow Records
Climbing the Christian music charts these days is the latest music from Sparrow Records recording artist, Josh Wilson. Josh’s latest release, That Was Then, This Is Now, is a fresh solid pop-rock album about life in Christ, surrender to His will, and the transformation that only He can bring.
Aureate keyboards, sophisticated programming, and punchy drums complement wall-to-wall guitars, throughout the album. Lending yet another layer of production intrigue are the innovative and compelling background vocals. Standing front and center are the smooth tenor lead vocals of Josh Wilson. All in all, this album is destined for Christian radio!
Josh is a prolific and compulsory songwriter and this project is full of some of his best work to date. He seems to have an incredible knack for melodic hooks that stick from the very first listen. I am particularly fond of That Was Then, This Is Now, No More, The Songs I Need to Hear, Don’t Let Go, and Coming Home. Every song is marked by lyric content that is refreshingly honest and transparent.
This is an album of ministry for today’s generation! Every time I listen to this album, the Lord brings to mind a lost someone in my life who needs to hear such virtue and truth. These are songs written from a place of experience – from the heart of one who has been in desperate places and found hope, forgiveness, deliverance, and freedom in Jesus.
Get this release today! And, buy one for someone in your life who is wandering, searching, and needs to know Christ!
