Details: Josh Garrels with Jason Barrows at Aladdin Theater

Josh Garrels has spent more than a decade crafting music that cuts clean through. With a voice that is sometimes beatific, sometimes brazen, Garrels’ songs explore themes of compassion, hope, longing, and liberation. Cultivating a genre-blending mix of folk and hip hop, Garrels’ music is intricately woven into his life story, fully coming into resolution in the context of the community surrounding his work—his family, faith, and roots.

Garrels makes his voice heard in a world where things aren’t the way they’re supposed to be. Creating music that rests in the space between accessibility and honesty, Garrels wrestles with and celebrates the mystery of faith with authenticity and heart. Instead of alienating listeners, Garrels’ faith challenges and compels fans from all backgrounds. Garrels’ music continues to steadily grow and be shared through social media, touring, album sales, and old-fashioned word-of-mouth.

The singer’s earliest musical recollection occurred at age three. He remembers, “Singing through the whole song of “Pretty Little Bluebird” with my head inside of our family’s clothes dryer because I liked the sound of the acoustics. When I finished, I pulled my head out, and my mom stopped folding laundry and started smiling, clapping, and congratulating me for getting the words and melody right.” At age 13, Garrels started making “overdubs” with his family’s Singalodeon double tape deck Karaoke machine. “I would record a guitar part on one tape, and then play that tape while recording vocals over it on another tape, and keep layering the parts.” The next year, Garrels formed a punk band, playing guitar and lead vocals.
