Profile: American musician from Texas. Last Of The Country Gentlemen (Album).
goes like this: Josh T. Pearson pulls the plug on the promising Lift To Experience band after one double album and a year of such enormous tragedy that it gets the band members to consider Maybe this is a sign from a higher being that we should wrap it before things really get bad. For a man like Pearson - someone raised in a family with religious convictions a sign from above is not something to ignore or take lightly. During a nearly decadelong sabbatical, Pearson released only one song - an appropriate cover of a Hank Williams tune. Sweetheart I Aint Your Christ starts with broken guitar scales before Pearson weaves a heart-wrenching tale of a love thats parting. You dont need a lover or a friend, he whispers. You need a savior, he continues, hitting each word with purpose, And I am not him.
The last of the country gentlemen. Pearson's intense voice dominates the tracks as he sings the existential confessions of a man who has lost his faith in God and in love. It's amusing to return with such a sad album after all this time! But it's totally honest. Sit and listen to it, it'll move you.

Classic and cutting-edge music, with Josh T. Pearson live in session. Texan singer and songwriter Josh T. Pearson joins Marc live in session. Although he's been writing songs now for over thirty years Josh has only released 3 albums. Mind you 2001's The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads (with his band Lift To Experience) and his solo debut, 2011's Last Of The Country Gentlemen are both stone cold classics. Now he's released The Straight Hits!, which started as a creative exercise following set songwriting rules and turned into a full bodied album with accompanying tour. Josh did a memorable session for Marc in 2011 and we're expecting more of the same in 2018.
