On the heels of releasing his current single "Borrow (One Day At A Time)" to Christian radio earlier this year, Black River Christian artist Josh Wilson has just released the new music video, "Borrow (One Day At A Time)" - The Solo Experience." The unique video was shot in Nashville at Sound Stage Studios, filming around him in 360° and showcasing Wilson's musical talents on more than five different instruments.
When Wilson was just in elementary school, he learned to play piano, guitar, and drums. Through the years, he's developed more talents for multiple other instruments, with the guitar as his mainstay performing and songwriting instrument.
"I've always wanted to incorporate multiple instruments into my live set," Wilson shares. "Over the years, I've tinkered with playing various instruments on my records, and I wanted to find a way to bring them all to the stage. This particular looping setup has taken me over five years to get up and running, and it's had a lot of different iterations. I'm really excited about where it's landed."
Naming his new live show setup "The Solo Experience," Wilson is excited about the crowd response thus far. "The fans have really seemed to enjoy it," said Wilson. "I think most people expect to see a singer/songwriter primarily playing guitar and sharing stories, which is certainly something I do, but it's fun to surprise them with playing multiple instruments - that's something you don't often see a solo artist doing. My favorite moment is moving over to the drums because I think people assume the drums are there for someone else to come out and eventually play. It's fun to see the reaction!"
Having the stage to himself also allows Wilson to have spontaneity and respond to the audiences. "I like to incorporate the crowd into the evening, and sometimes even into the loops," he adds. "Being up there alone with all those instruments gives me a lot of flexibility to make each night unique."
Currently Top 30 at Christian radio, "Borrow (One Day At A Time)" received an astounding 25 adds its first week. Fans can continue to hear and request the single nationwide on stations including Family Life Radio, KLTY/Dallas, KSGN/Riverside, KXOJ/Tulsa, WLAB/Ft. Wayne, WONU/Chicago, and more. The single, which was produced by Jordan Sapp and is found on Wilson's EP that released in November, titled Don't Look Back, continues to be heard around the U.S., making an impact with every listen. Co-writing the song with James Tealy (Lauren Daigle, Kari Jobe), Wilson was inspired to write this song based on his own personal struggles with anxiety and panic attacks.
