Joshua Morrison

Sampling Sasquatch: Joshua Morrison

I'm so excited for this weekend! I'm packing my shorts and tent (along with laptop and sunglasses) and heading out to George, WA, for the Sasquatch Music Festival. Woo-hoo! It's not the largest music fest of the year by any stretch, nor is it the most well-known, but that's what I really like about it. It's an intimate experience, and blessedly devoid of young Hollywood. In other words, it's very much "by music lovers, for music lovers." Add to that the gorgeous outdoor setting of Eastern Washington (and I promise to take photos), and I've got one heck of a good time ahead of me.

This week I'm giving you a taste of some of the smaller, lesser-known bands and musicians I plan to check out live this weekend. I'm starting with Joshua Morrison who, like a lot of the artists playing at Sasquatch, is a native of the Northwest (though he currently resides in Kentucky). If you like the slow, stripped-down, and sometimes melancholy sound of bands like Iron & Wine, then you will probably enjoy Joshua's music. I'll admit, I'm a little addicted right now; I think his lyrics are gorgeous and moving. And here's an interesting fact: Joshua joined the military and wrote many of his songs after serving in Iraq.

You can get his entire album titled Home from iTunes here, and I have one of his songs for you to listen after the jump. To take a listen for yourself and tell me about your first impressions,

Have fun! I love music festivals and this year I am lucky enough to be living in Europe where there are big massive festivals for all types galore!

Hi Buzz! Thanks for your post. Yeah, Sasquatch is always a hoot and I think they extended it to 3 days this year for the first time so it should be even more spectacular. This Joshua Morrison guy sounds more like David Gray to me. In the sense that you feel like you are just hypnotized by the soft ups and downs of the sound waves comin at you. Good Find!
