Though he's been a recording artist for over two decades now, and has been writing songs for thirty years, Josh T. Pearson hasn't racked up much of a discography thus far, at least in terms of the number of albums he's released. But then, those two albums — 2001's 'The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads' by his group Lift To Experience, and his 2011 solo debut 'Last Of The Country Gentleman' — contained more substance and inspiration than most artists' entire careers. The former was a cosmic, apocalyptic allegorical fantasy that saw Pearson try to come to terms with his faith and his intense upbringing; the latter was an agonising, powerfully confessional count of the collapse of his marriage. You can't rush material like that.

Lately, however, the dapper Texan Gentleman has been motivated by a desire to share more Josh T. Pearson music with the world, before it's too late. It is in such a spirit that Mr. Josh T. Pearson presents you, the listener, with this waxing of his fine new songs. 'The Straight Hits!' began as a mere creative exercise and swiftly transcended that modest intention. This is his joy. Let him spread it to you. These songs are precious evidence of Pearson's talents, the album feeling like the calling-card of a songwriter-for-hre, showing all he's capable of — gifted in multiple different flavours of country, rock and all points in between.

Josh T. Pearson has freed himself from the mythology that has surrounded him since Lift To Experience's implosion, his subsequent years in the wilderness travelling throughout Europe and beyond, and the releases of his acclaimed debut album. This record seems to have loosened up his muse, with Pearson talking up future releases, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here. There's new Josh T. Pearson music in the world and it's joyful, giddy, life-affirming stuff.

You can hear it all for yourself at Pearson's upcoming performance at Glee Club Birmingham on 16th May 2018.
