I'm not his only super fan: Ellen DeGeneres loves Josh so much that she asked him to perform at her wedding!
True Story: I first met Josh when he made his TV debut on Last Call. We met again one night a few years later at a dinner arranged by mutual friends that were dating. I asked him for some tips on new artists I should consider booking on the show. He suggested I book a then unknown female singer named Ingrid Michaelson. Lucky for me I took his advice. Our friends have long been broken up, but since then he's become like a brother.
Whisper Rock: He recently released his third record The Rock and the Tide. It's different from his past two records. He added more energy, more rock, more fun -- but still kept the melodies and lyrics that give me goosebumps. Even though it doesn't include a cover of Dirty Diana per my suggestion/constant pleading, I absolutely love it.
He was in LA recently performing for his other BFF Ellen, and while we were hanging backstage he let Ask Him Anything...

5. What is a question you wish someone would ask you? We wish more people would ask us the questions you are asking! What kind of music we listen to.. We get tired of just talking about ourselves. We love talking about other bands and musicians.
... so what are you listening to? Electronic music - like Clark, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Blonde Redhead, Shoegaze like My Bloody Valentine, Asobi Seksu
5. What is a question you wish someone would ask you? I can think of a lot of questions I wish people wouldn't ask! Hmm. Katie: It would be fun if someone asked me if bird ever shit in my eye. Cause it did! And it hurt! The same thing happened to our guitar tech. Hurt her too. How strange is that?! Jules: I'd like someone to ask me if I would you like to clear up the misconception that I wrote songs for George Micheal and Andrew Whyment. Everyone asks me about that - it's not true!
***I ASK EVERYONE is a new post category. Inspired by James Lipton's famous 10 Questions, I'll ask the same 5 questions to all of my favorite bands. Hope you enjoy it!!***
