Josh Gilbert / Press

"Whenever I think about creating an event and I turn to the music component, I always think of Josh Gilbert. What I get from Josh -- besides melodious vocals and great guitar -- is absolute commitment to the performance. Great songs. Check. Great musicianship. Check. Great vocals. Check. But all of these things without the courage to commit to the performance amount to nothing. In my eyes, Josh is an artist in every sense of the word. The fact that I can say all of these things and still praise his humility, flexibility, and graciousness should tell you everything you need to know. I unreservedly recommend Josh Gilbert's music"

“Josh Gilbert’s voice and melodic style have a distinctive signature that is unmistakable regardless of the genre of music he is working in. The passion of his vocal delivery has echoed through on his previous work, but in the acoustic setting there is a soulfulness that eagerly finds its way out. Whether he is working through a weathered folk song like “Crucified”, or a tune like the more upbeat ballad “Taking Back the Night”; Gilbert’s vocals have an added character that wasn’t as detectable within his Jettison Never body of work. By getting down to the basics and minimal accompaniment of his six string, this soul filled element absolutely jumps out at you.”

“As both a solo artist and with Jettison Never, Gilbert has toured across the country as well as internationally. He recently returned from a series of Canadian dates including shows in Toronto and Montreal. His concert at The Camp House will be filmed for use in an upcoming live concert DVD. Gilbert said that his music most often is inspired by the universal journey to find purpose in one's life and overcoming the obstacles that impede that quest. The goal, he said, is to offer people a reason to hope without coming across as preachy or self-absorbed.”

“Chattanooga singer-songwriter Josh Gilbert has been playing music since childhood and even toured the United States for nearly 10 years with the band Jettison Never, which he formed with his brother. This weekend, Gilbert hopes to give his solo career a boost by recording his first live concert DVD at The Camp House that he can not only sell as a commercial release, but use to sell himself to promoters around the country.”
