Grec 2014: Josh Rouse

  • Music, Pop

Time Out says

Rouse was born in Nebraska, but moved all around the States as a military brat, and so was influenced by music from all over the country, including folk, pop, country rock and California sounds. Ever the travelling man, Rouse has lived in Spain since 2005, where he's written albums including 'Subtítulo' and 'El Turista' and even the score for the film 'La gran familia española' from Daniel Sánchez Arévalo, for which he won the Goya (aka 'the Spanish Oscars') for Best Song used in a Film. Rouse, who will also perform his own songs, of course, dedicates the first part of the concert to some American music greats, specifically the Violent Femmes and their 1983 eponymous debut album in this concert under the 'Off the Record' banner at the Grec festival and the 'We Used to Party' concerts, where musicians re-create live versions of albums by their idols.
