Singer Josh Rouse


“Songwriting for me is something I have to do to stay on the sunny side of life. It’s my therapy.”


Celebrating Josh Rouse!

Time to put on some classic music, thanks to a great singer/songwriter!

If you haven’t heard the beautiful music of Singer/Songwriter Josh Rouse, then you are missing a treat! My former co-worker, Blair Butler told me about this terrific singer, and once I began to listen, I was hooked!

Rouse has released a series of classic albums, and just released a new CD, which is one of his best yet!

Here is a short snippet of Rouse’s bio, courtesy of his website:

“It may have been 15+ years – from roots in rural Nebraska, through time in ‘Music City’ Nashville, TN, and to the current day relocated to a new home in cosmopolitan Spain – but it seems that the song spirits have been constant companions for Josh Rouse.

“And maybe no more so than on the singer-songwriter’s latest record, “The Happiness Waltz”, an album that marries both his past, and present – revisiting an earlier era, where his music was heavily influenced by the ‘soft rock’ of the 70’s, and combining it with lyrical tales drawn from the here and now – his modern day-to-day life, one deeply enriched by his children and family.”

Here is his first single, an immediate classic from “The Happiness Waltz” –

That is a beautiful song, just another in a career full of them. His music is mellow and heartfelt, and in many ways feels effortless – just catchy melodies and terrific musicianship.

Here is one of his most famous songs, a gorgeous ode to love – from his brilliant CD “1972”:

Rouse has released a number of acclaimed albums, and there are also several compilations that allow you to dip into the music as well – but I say buy them all!

His music has been used in many movies as well. Interestingly, the singer moved to Valencia, Spain with his wife and kids, and now records music there in a home studio. Here is a beautiful song that speaks to this change in his life:

“Ooh, sometimes I miss the show
I learned a long time ago…”
