Introducing Joshua James (Northplatte/Intelligent Noise Recs)

JJ is an American folk/rock musician championed by Paste Magazine and we are pretty fond of his live performances too.  After his first album (‘The Sun Is Always Brighter’) went to no. 1 on the iTunes folk charts in 2007, Paste Magazine named him one of the “Next 25 Artists You Need To Know” (Sept 2008).    He then toured supporting artists including John Mayer, David Gray, Brett Dennen and Ani DiFranco.

Most remarkably, JJ has accomplished all of this on his own indie label–which signed last year another artist who later signed with Columbia Records.

In 2009 he released ‘Build Me This’ which Paste Magazine gave a 9.2/10 rating and dubbed “Phenomenal”.
