Biography[edit]

Josh Garrels is a singer-songwriter, hip-hop producer, and orchestral folk composer from South Bend, Indiana. His music combines traditional folk music with other musical elements and the nontraditional exploration of Christian themes. He currently lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife and three children. Since 2005 he has co-founded the record label, Small Voice Records and released the albums: Over Oceans, Jacaranda, and Lost Animals. Garrels released his sixth album in June 2011 titled Love & War & The Sea In Between.[1] Christianity Today called the album "prophetic, incisive, achingly human, and longingly spiritual," and rated it as their 2011 Album of The Year.[2][3] In 2012, Garrels collaborated with the music collective Mason Jar Music to film the music-documentary movie The Sea In Between in which Mason Jar and Josh traveled to the remote Mayne Island, BC to perform music on several of Mayne's most beautiful locations.[4] The film was reviewed by Billboard (magazine) [5] and has received a 4.5 Star review on Amazon.com.[6] "Don't Wait For Me" was featured on American Idol on January 29, 2014.[7]

Charity[edit]

From March 14, 2013 to March 28, 2013 (14 days) Garrels had 161,245 albums downloads on Noisetrade.com which raised $71,566 in "tips". All of the funds were given in full to World Relief to help with their work to bring peace and restoration to the DR Congo.[8]
