Editorial Reviews

"Build Me This" is the 2nd full length album from Joshua James demonstrating a solid progression in artist development. The album has received a good amount of critical acclaim to date and earned a 92 out of 100 "Phenomenal" rating from Paste Magazine. The 13 song "Build Me This" exhibits a more electrified side of Joshua and his band, in addition to some of the more sparse, moody, acoustic numbers reminiscent of his first album "The Sun Is Always Brighter".

What do we expect of a musician? We expect him to be able to write original songs that sustain one's interest both musically and lyrically. We expect the music to be unique and flawlessly executed. We expect him, if he sings, to have an intrigueing voice, to sing from his heart, and to move us to the place where he found the song. We don't expect the music to be 'nice' and appealing in the short term - it must have depth, profundity, and it may be sad, but still it should be beautiful. The music should grow on you, and become part of you, and become more beautiful the more you listen to it. Now, I am 55 years old, and I have at last found a young artist, Joshua James, who is able to do everything that I have listed. And a tall order it is indeed - but still he has it all! He stands out like a beacon of light in a morass of boring, unoriginal, feeble wannabees for whom it seems imperative to sing out of tune. Thank God that there are still some artists around. I was beginning to think that they had all gone away. To 'Build me this' all I can say is 'Bravo, Joshua!'. I have the first album too, and love it as much... I cannot wait for more.

Joshua James is quite simply one of the best of the emerging singer-songwriters on the scene today. For such a young man, he brings a maturity and depth to his compositions. Having the good fortune to have seen him in live performance recently in Vienna, Virginia, I can also complement him on the ability to give a dynamic stage presentation. This should be a must buy for any real music lover!!!

I happened across Joshua James when cruising for new music on YouTube. Loved the first song I heard and every song since! What an amazing talent! What soulful lyrics and presentation! He is definitety a voice for our times.

FYI, I'm a folk music fan who mostly listens to artists like Richard Shindell, John Gorka, Brandon Heath, Peter Bradley Adams, Joshua Radin, Griffin House, John Mayer, Whiskeytown and my timeless favorite, James Taylor.

Joshua songs that I enjoy most? Crash this Train... In the Middle... Wilted Daisies... Coal War... Lawn of Marigolds...

He's one of those artists you just want the whole world to be listening to. I have no doubt that one day will be the case.

Been listening to this for the year and a half pretty consistently. Still love it all the way through, every time.

This album is simply incredible. Every song is raw and emotional. Joshua James shares every possible part of his voice with his listeners. He hits these gravelly, coarse notes that are so genuine, you fall in love with his music. The guitar instrumentals are powerful.
His music inspires me to write. By listening to this CD over and over, I finally managed to finish a screenplay I've been plugging away at for almost a year. That's a personal story that you might not see as relevant to your interests, but the point is:
this album is inspirational!!! Buy it!!!

This was the third copy of this album I bought. I listened to the disc twenty or thirty times in my car and just HAD to share it with friends! Everyone I sent it to has loved it, too. Joshua James is an incredibly talented and sincere musician. It's one of the most soulful and empathetic albums I've ever owned. I'll probably be buying a bunch more of these as Christmas presents for my other music-loving buddies. If I had to rate it on a scale of 1-10, this disc is definitely a 10!

I first became acquainted with Joshua on Guitar Sessions. I was intrigued enough to look up his work and then ordered some of his music to add to my extensive collection. I must say that I was pleased beyond my expectations

The first cd I bought by Joshua James was On Top of Willamette Mountain. Although it was good, this cd blew me away. It is beautiful and high-lights Joshes' voice in a very pure way. The songs are interesting and varied. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite folk cd's. I can hear influence from Bob Dylan and even Jack White but he makes the music his own. If his other cd's are anything like this one I will be buying them too.
