Josh Gilbert Band Releases New Album At The Camp House Aug. 24

Sunday, August 4, 2013

The Josh Gilbert Band will release a new album at a concert at The Camp House on Saturday, Aug  24.  They will be performing songs from their new CD entitled Adoration Anthems, a collection of songs that share an expression of faith, love, and inspiration to the human spirit.

Review for Josh Gilbert:

Josh Gilbert is both a solo artist and band that has elements founded on pop/rock, while incorporating indie/alternative, southern rock, blues, soul, and even a bit of gospel into their own brand of positive 'Indie Inspirational-Rock.'

All his life, Josh has been performing both in and outside of the church, in Chattanooga and beyond -- to touring nationally and internationally, both solo and with a band. Josh's band primarily consists of long-time multi-musician bandmate and brother Matt Gilbert; as well as drummer Ben Phillips (cousin), and guitarist Casey Bryant (brother-in-law), to round out the Josh Gilbert Band. 

Josh Gilbert feels led to share his passionate and original music with a wide array of audiences, not only for churches but for all stages, venues & settings that will allow him to share his messages about life, love, spirituality and a relationship with God. 

Josh and the brothers have performed nearly 1,000+ shows, and 44 states, five national/west-coast tours, etc.

Today Josh regularly travels around the U.S. and internationally, connecting with many different churches as well as venues, including the likes of River's Edge Community Church in Montreal, Canada; Mosaic Churches across the U.S.A. and Toronto, Ontario, Canada; as well as the featured performer for VOXTROPOLIS International Festival & IMN Conference in Detroit, MI for the past six ears; also notable appearances at Riverbend Festival, J-Fest (TN), & Forecastle Festival (KY).
