Vancouver based singer-songwriter Joshua Hyslop returns with his sophomore album In Deepest Blue on October 23 via Nettwerk Records.
While playing over 50 intimate ‘House Shows’ across the country since 2013, Joshua would break bread with these families and often end up staying awake late into the night talking about life, loss, love and everything in between. “I’d show up, we’d have dinner, I’d perform the concert, and sometimes we’d end up talking almost all night,” says Joshua. “Some of the conversations I got to have had an impact on me, and it would bleed into the songs. Through these tours, I’ve realized that, ‘Yes, times can be hard,’ but everybody has felt that way, everybody’s got their stuff. I’m not alone in that.”
Premiering on Earmilk, Joshua shares the first track from In Deepest Blue “Let It Go,” which was penned with Michael Logen during a writing trip in Nashville.
LISTEN & SHARE “LET IT GO”:
Written in Nashville and finished back home in Canada, In Deepest Blue reflects every facet of Joshua Hyslop. “I want people to listen to ‘In Deepest Blue’ from beginning to end,” he leaves off. “If they do engage with it, I think optimism will be the one thing they’ll feel. Whatever that looks like. I think they’ll find their own personal meaning though. Beyond all the chaos, you find the deepest blue. It’s the calmness we all have. It’s the hope inside.”
This fall, Joshua Hyslop will hit the road in Western Canada with several tour dates supporting Ron Sexmith. A full list of tour dates are below.
