You’d think that five albums into his career as a singer/songwriter and fronting the band that bears his name, more folks would be familiar with Josh Blakesley. He’s worked with mainstays of the Christian music industry including our friends Michael Farren and Mia Fieldes, yet to many of us, he’s a newcomer. And perhaps that’s because he’s Catholic. Though Matt Maher and our recent guest, Audrey Assad, have been able to breakthrough, many Catholic music artists have been unable to crossover into mainstream CCM.
Well, let’s change that. Spend a few minutes with us as Joe Brookhouse sits down with Josh to discuss bridging the apparent gap between Protestant and Catholic in Christian art, worshiping in seasons of deepest wounds, the band’s most recent album, Even In This, and writing a song about the very American holiday of Thanksgiving with the very Australian Mia Fieldes.
