One of the "new generation" of young hot bluegrass pickers and smooth singers, Josh Williams, from Kentucky, formed his first band in 1990 at the age of ten. He then received national recognition as a young bluegrass prodigy when he appeared in the 1993 IBMA Awards Show as part of a "youth in bluegrass" band. He recorded his first album in 1991, played with The Young Acoustic All-Stars (1994-98), Hyperdrive (1998), and The Special Consensus (since 2000). His latest musical achievement, this solo debut album called "Now That You're Gone," should clearly establish Josh's name as a shining star that will carry bluegrass music's flame into the future. Besides having a singing voice ideally suited for contemporary bluegrass, multi-instrumentalist Josh also plays mandolin (as well as some guitar and banjo) on this stellar product. He also demonstrates his songwriting skills with the title cut, a sad tale of finally coming to the realization that a loved one has gone. This first-rate production includes some excellent accompaniment from session musicians Aubrey Haynie, Don Rigsby, Sammy Shelor, Chris Thile, J.D. Crowe, Jim Hurst, Missy Raines, David Parmley, Greg Cahill, Ron Stewart, Ray Craft, Chris Thile, Randy Kohrs, Carl Jackson, and Jim Hurst. This album also shines in its choice of material. Besides the one from Josh, some of the other songs were penned by outstanding songwriters Kim Fox, Pete Goble and Leroy Drumm, Tom T. and Dixie Hall, and Carl Jackson. Simply, the album offers fantastic bluegrass music, with a few surprises thrown in such as the western swingy "All of You," country-flavored ballad "Tennessee Blues," and Gospel number "There's Always a Light in the Church." The Goble/Drumm composition, "You Can Keep Your Nine Pound Hammer," is receiving excellent airplay around the country. The young, innovative, and talented Josh Williams has shown that he's a tremendous force to be reckoned with. Expect him to make a big impact on the bluegrass genre as he continues to surround himself with some of the best musicians around, choose excellent material to present, and create a personalized sound that has a broad appeal. Josh Williams is poised to become one of bluegrass music's young torchbearers. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)
