In the liner notes of Tyler Childers’ break-out release Purgatory in August, 2017 he has simple instructions “Listen To:” and lists Josh Nolan. And you should, in fact, listen. Stanton, Kentucky native-son Josh Nolan self-released his debut album, Fair City Lights in 2014, blowing away audiences and critics alike. Often compared to a young Bruce Springsteen, Josh has an expressive voice, ambitious guitar prowess, and infectious song lyrics that capture the intricate details of people’s lives in small town, America. Since his debut, Josh Nolan has played hundreds of gigs throughout the Mid-West and South-East United States. He has performed at festivals like Master Musician Fest, Well Crafted, and Kickin’ It On The Creek. He has shared stages or opened for artists like Tyler Childers, Langhorne Slim, Margo Price, Darrel Scott, Lera Lynn, John Moreland, and Shooter Jennings. Josh is a multi-instrumentalist in-demand band member and studio session player recently supporting Senora May, his sister and current rising star Chelsea Nolan, William Matheny, Doc Feldman, Short & Company, and more. Josh Nolan worked meticulously in his home studio recording and producing his second album Kind Heart to Follow (scheduled for release May, 2019 via Shaker Steps Records). The album was recorded with engineering help from Kenny Miles (of Wayne Gram) and finally mixed and mastered by Jason Groves at Sneak Attack Recording Company. Josh played most of the instruments on the album himself except for the drum tracks enlisting help from Josh Anglin and Hayden Miles with backup vocal appearances by Chelsea Nolan and Montana Hobbs (of The Local Honeys).
