PREVIEW: Joshua James @ The Georgian Theatre
By Linsey Teggert on October 16, 2012 in Music
Being compared to Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Ray LaMontagne and Bright Eyes is a pretty impressive feat for any singer-songwriter, especially one that has only been writing and singing songs for six years. Yet Nebraskan Joshua James has the perspective of a wise, old soul with a soulful, whispery vocal that could reduce you to tears and bring on a swooning fit, all at the same time.
With this intimate vocal style and bittersweet lyrics, it’s a dead cert that James’ only North East gig on his 14-date UK jaunt at the Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Thursday 18 October will be a pretty special affair. With support coming from sublime Newcastle folk five-piece The Winter Hill Transmission, there won’t be a dry eye in the house.
