Praised for his “spare and easy sounding guitar songs” by NPR, Rouse first emerged in 1998 with his debut album, Dressed Up Like Nebraska, which Billboard called a “dark horse gem.” Over the next two decades, he released a steady stream of critically lauded records that solidified his status as one of his generation’s most acclaimed songwriters. Rouse traded in his trusty acoustic guitar for a synthesizer, a move that quickly pulled him in a slew of exciting, unexpected directions. The end result, Love In the Modern Age, is an album that still bears Rouse’s distinct fingerprints, even as it pushes his limits and forges a bold new chapter more than 20 years into his celebrated career.
This show will be an intimate solo performance by Josh Rouse.

- Josh Rouse recorded his debut Dressed Like Nebraska in 1998. The album’s acclaim led to tours with Aimee Mann, Mark Etzel, and the late Vic Chestnut. The followup – Home (2000) – yielded the song “Directions” which Cameron Crowe used in his film Vanilla Sky.
- 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.
