Never miss another 'Josh T Pearson' show
Josh T Pearson
This show was moved from O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire.
This event takes place at Islington Assembly Hall, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Originally from Texas, Josh T. Pearson formed the short-lived phenomenon that was Lift to Experience, who released one sprawling masterpiece, 2001's 'The Texas Jerusalem Crossroads', before splitting up soon after. So beloved by John Peel were they that he had them record three sessions in five months and were included in the Best 125 Peel Sessions of all time. Since then, Josh T. Pearson spent many years in the wilderness, only releasing one studio recording, 'I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry', a split 7" single with the Dirty Three and appearing on the Mercury Prize nominated Bat for Lashes album 'Fur and Gold'.
2018 finally sees him releasing a second album; 'The Straight Hits!' “The album is a departure from years of long form songwriting with tunes meant to hit straight and to the point. They all had to be direct hits although I don't know if I got the 'hits' part right, but I did think it was funny calling it a 'hits' record after releasing only one solo album after a lifetime of playing music,” says Pearson.
