Josh Holiday makes a way where there seems to be no way. Born in Celeste, TX -- a town of only 800 people -- he found himself in a public school system that did not include music in the curriculum. Following the passion God had placed in his heart since birth, Josh cultivated his musical talents on his own under the mentorship of his father, who was a self-taught pianist, guitarist and vocalist. Influenced by a broad spectrum of artists including Brian McKnight, Justin Timberlake, Elvis, U2, CeCe Winans, and Amy Grant, Josh found his own unique vocal style and eventually began to use his gifts for God's glory by leading worship and participating in several international mission trips at Highland Terrace Baptist Church.
The next step in Josh's journey led him to Belmont University in Nashville, TN, where he would spend the next few years growing as a songwriter, vocalist, and performer. As a result of his tenacious and dedicated work ethic, he managed to separate himself from the incredibly competitive pack and was featured in seven showcases while at Belmont -- one writer's showcase, three Christian Showcases, one Commercial Showcase, and two Best of the Best Showcases. After graduation, Josh took a step of faith and auditioned for American Idol, which proved to be one of the greatest experiences of his career so far. After a long and wild ride, Josh finished in the Top 40 and returned to Nashville wiser, more determined, and with countless new mentors and friends in his corner.
While others sit back and ride the wave of such success, Josh continued to make his own way by writing, recording, and even directing his own music videos. Ultimately, he caught the eyes and ears of former schoolmate Brooks Parker and Jennifer Cooke of JKC Artist Group, who are now managing Josh's budding career. Having just released his first single "Rewind" to iTunes, Josh is excited to start reaching for his loftiest goals -- acting in a Tyler Perry movie, performing at the Super Bowl, and having a song featured at the Olympics, just to name a few. Although these may seem overly ambitious to most, with his unmatched vocal ability, unforgettable songwriting, and unashamed love for the Lord, Josh Holiday will make a way where there seems to be no way.
