Josh Blakesley has acknowledged a simple calling: To make music that moves people into prayer and action.
As a songwriter, specifically for liturgy in 2017, the question that provokes Josh is: How do I create a song that will honor traditions and music yet speak to the modern Church and lead them to worship. Not only has he recently released a new mass setting (Mass of Restoration: Acoustic Sessions) that pays homage to hymns of the past and the culture of modern worship, but he write songs, traveling the country, sharing them with the Church. Josh continues to tour heavily with his band, playing at churches, festivals, youth and adult conferences, camps, etc. He currently lives in Alexandria, LA with his wife Heather and their two children and serves as the Associate Music Director at Our Lady Prompt Succor.
