Wilson has the charm of Bruno Mars, the lyrical exploration of Brandon Heath, and the humble confidence of Chris Tomlin.”- All Music Guide.com

“Josh writes catchy folk-pop style melodies and story-songs and if you
like Bebo Norman, Matthew West and Jason Gray, then you should really enjoy Josh Wilson.  I can’t get enough of this album, sure to be one of my top albums of 2011. Josh invites you into his life in such an authentic and relatable way, you’ll feel like you are a lifelong friend after you hear this album.”-ChristianMusicReview.org
