Wilson grew up the son of a preacher in Lubbock, Texas. He signed to Sparrow Records in 2006 and in 2008 released his major label debut, Trying to Fit the Ocean in a Cup. Since then he has released numerous hits including “Before the Morning,” which landed the No. 4 spot on Billboard’s Year-End Christian Songs chart, while also releasing a sophomore album, Life Is Not A Snapshot, and a compilation self-titled record.
More recently, Josh has been exploring the meaning of faith, as evident in his third studio album See You, which was released last year.
“Something I’ve been learning over the past decade is that when we want to see God, we have to depend less on our physical eyes and more on the Holy Spirit,” he says. “The subtle, still small voice of God. I admit it. I’m not the best at it. I want to see God with my eyes.” That tension between faith and sight is the undercurrent of See You.
“Josh brings the musical influences of pop, folk, rock, classical, hymns and more into his award-winning song writing with songs such as ‘I Refuse’ and ‘Fall Apart,’ which can be heard on Positive Life Radio,” says Sali Miller, promotions manager. “We’re delighted to welcome Josh to the Walla Walla Valley and would like to invite everyone to the concert.”
