Joshua James: RadioPotato.com Interview


I never knew Nebraska to be a hotbed for music, but apparently, I needed to be schooled.  Compared to rock legends like Bob Dylan and Neil Young, the 26-year old singer songwriter, Joshua James hailing from Lincoln, NE has been catching praise from some of the music industry’s most respected critics and is gaining quite a cult following.

His release of the pop-infused The Sun Is Always Brighter reached #1 on iTunes’ Folk Album list in 2007. Paste Magazine named him one of their coveted honors of the  “Next 25 Artists You Need To Know” in September 2008. Joshua has been public about how his first album wasn’t as genuine as he would have liked and headed back to the studio to record his second album, the darker  Build Me This, which was released September 8, 2009 on Northplatte Records. Paste Magazine dubbed the album “phenomenal.”  iTunes also named Build Me This one of the “Best of 2009” singer/songwriter albums.

This folk artist known for singing deep “unavoidably catchy feel-bad songs” was prime for an interview with RadioPotato.com.  When I interviewed him, he was shy and soft-spoken.  It was obvious he was uncomfortable with his growing fame but felt very convicted about his questions around damnation and salvation.  Growing up in a close-knit but very strict religious family, Joshua wasn’t allowed to listen to rock music and would often rebel by sneaking out and causing mischief.

As low-key and understated as he was during our conversation, his performance onstage at 99x’s Unplugged in the Park summer concert series showed a completely different side.  Joshua live is an electrifying experience filled with rage and passion.  Almost as if he’s unleashing pent-up anger, he would sing so hard he’d be on his toes, veins popping out of his forehead, and rock the hell out of his songs.

This also is my debut video interview so please go easy on me and support Joshua James instead. 🙂

    Way to alienate a whole geographic area with your first sentence. The Lincoln music scene is rockin’. Obviously you need to visit and see that for yourself.

  2. Allison Rizk says:

    Eileen, I’d love to discover more artists you love from Nebraska. Please send some suggestions! Thanks for your comment-

  3. Vanessa Johnson says:

    Whoa, whoa…Lincoln and Omaha have HAD killer music scenes forever. Cursive? 311? Bright Eyes? Matthew Sweet? Luigi, Inc.? Ritual Device? Just to name a few….the mid-nineties in particular was just awesome there.

  5. Shinobi says:

    Matthew Sweet might have been born there, but he his music is Athens, GA, it’s where he lived and played nonstop.

    311 they signed in the 90’s to Capricorn, an Athens label with bands like Widespread Panic and Col. Bruce and the Aquarium Rescue Unit and played Athens non-stop and that’s how they got big too, heck even Conor sings about his living in Athens, check out “Southern State”.

    I guess maybe it’s just me but I enjoyed Cat Power and Archers of Loaf a lot more than 311 and they are nice guys.

    So come on Matt, you can do better than just that list right? Seems pretty much like Lincoln is lacking, Omaha was where music like this was at. But the 90s the Upper NW, the Midwest (MN, IL) all followed on the boots of the South, you know where the football is real and the music too ;p
