Josh's Christian music journey began in 1992 while he was involved with a high school peer ministry team. During that time, he saw the power of God at work in the lives of teens. He vowed to be sold out for Christ and to use his gift of writing music to glorify God. In a world where well-produced secular music is dominant, he has dedicated himself to making quality contemporary Catholic music.
In 2003, Josh released his first solo album, Immersed, which included the popular anthem “Our God Is Good” and “The Lord Is My Shepherd.” Immersed was followed by his sophomore album, Waiting, and his third album, Free. His fourth album, You Are the Light was released to iTunes in March of 2012 debuting at #16 on the Christian and Gospel charts. Even in This, Josh and his band’s latest album, features songs co-written by Farren, Mia Fieldes, Marc Byrd and Sarah Hart.
Josh travels widely giving concerts and workshops at parishes, speaking at youth rallies and leading praise and worship. He is a veteran of many major events, including World Youth Day, NCYC, NCCYM, the Steubenville Youth Conference and more. The Josh Blakesley Band is currently touring the United States and abroad.
Currently Josh and his family live in Alexandria, Louisiana.
