BIOGRAPHY

 

Josh Rouse was born in Nebraska, and following an itinerant upbringing he eventually landed in Nashville where he recorded his debut Dressed Like Nebraska (1998). The album’s acclaim led to tours with Aimee Mann, Mark Etzel and the late Vic Chestnut. The follow-up Home (2000)—yielded the song “Directions” which Cameron Crowe used in his film Vanilla Sky.

For his breakthrough album, 1972 (2003), which happens to be the year he was born, Rouse decided to cheer up a bit. Noting that he’d earned a reputation for melancholy, he says, with a laugh, “I figured this is my career, I might as well try to enjoy it.” While the Seventies are often identified with singer-songwriters, Rouse was primarily attracted to the warmer sound of albums back then, as well as the more communal feel of the soul music of that time. The follow-up, Nashville (2005) continued the hot streak and expanded his audience further.

After relocating to Valencia, Spain, with his wife Paz, Rouse has released a steady stream of high quality songs and albums. Subtitulo (2006) contained the international indie folk hit “Quiet Town”. On El Turista (2010) he even experimented with writing and singing some songs in Spanish. In 2014, he won a Goya Award (the Spanish equivalent of an Oscar) for best song for “Do You Really Want To Be In Love,” from the film ‘La Gran Familia Española'.

ABOUT

PAPER SESSIONS by OCB


The Paper Sessions is a OCB new project that aims to promote contemporary music in all its range and diversity. Originality, quality and eclecticism are the guidelines of this project orientated towards an open and free dissemination of music.

Every month for the period of one year (starting March 2018), Paper Sessions will launch a new video of a short performance by a solo musician, band or ensemble. Shot in black and white and carefully edited, each video will feature a different genre of music: pop-rock, soul, electronica, hip-hop, jazz, folk, avantgarde... The project will accommodate all kinds of styles and will feature artists from all around the globe.

The Paper Sessions should thus be regarded as a virtual, worldwide and 24/7 music venue where visitors can listen to their favorite music and also discover new sounds and sonic ideas. Through its own on-line platforms (webpage, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube) this project has been created with a wide, multicultural and transgenerational audience in mind.
