I've been slowly working on a semi-exhaustive Spotify playlist containing my favorite songs of all-time. Some classics, some deep cuts, some you're sure to love...and a few you probably won't - but in the end, these are the songs that have shaped ME over a lifetime. Enjoy!⚡️ Playlist Link: open.spotify.com/user/joshgarrels/playlist/2RVmGiNtkdPBzgTUijMPPz ... See MoreSee Less

Lindsay LinegarJosh Garrels! What a gift: thank you for this! And I know this is going to be good. I pressed shuffle play and the first song was from the Fantastic Mr. Fox soundtrack.👍🏻

Steph GoneburgersThis is an epic playlist - I'm only 3 deep and loving it. Have had a scroll down and there's a lot in here that I adore so I know I'm going to listen to this one a lot! Could do with more Josh Garrels though ;)

I've always been really hesitant to allow my feed to become a place of advertisement for sponsors or products. Yet, I often receive super thoughtful gifts & goods from supportive fans & fellow craftsman, & I believe in giving honor where it's due. Here are a few worth mentioning:
The Cortica Coffee Mug - great design, & totally me & my wife @ellegarrels favorite travel mug ⚡️
The North End Bag Co. waxed duffel - leather & canvas, you can't go wrong, & perfect light carry-on/weekend bag ⚡️
P.S. If you're out there, & you've ever sent me a thoughtful gift, letter, money, or your own music...THANK YOU! I don't take these kind gestures for granted. I believe I have some of the kindest, noblest, & most generous listeners around (other musicians tell me so as well 😉). Your kindness & encouragement have spurred me on many times, and for you I'm grateful 🙌🏻.

A big shout out to the Unsung Heroes of the road - These are the luthiers & guitar-techs who go out of their way to repair & set up our instruments, on location, when time is of the essence (i.e. just before we go on stage!). I'd like to name a few gifted luthiers who have come to my rescue in just the past year! If you need work done, I highly recommend these guys:
Hendrickson Guitars in Minneapolis, MN ⚡️
SDC Guitars in Indianapolis, IN ⚡️
Puleo Guitars in Charlotte, NC ⚡️

I have some bittersweet news to share with our Portland & PNW friends & family. Our home just went on the market yesterday! It will be showing by appointment through the weekend, with an open house on Saturday from 11 to 2 (we won't be there, but our realtor will greet you 😉). If you're in the market for an historic home, close in, with permitted ADU...this could be the one for you! - We've cherished our 8 years here in Portland, but now, we're headed back to the heartland for this next chapter of our life. God willing we'll be purchasing a 26 acre farm outside of Bloomington, Indiana, where I'll continue writing new songs and raising my family. ... See MoreSee Less

Jane SparksCONGRATS!! I live in Portland (and came to faith at DOH) but have family in Brown County/Lake Lemon we could easily move back there soon. Our 2 kids are about same age as your first 2. Bittersweet for sure, but VERY personally inspiring to hear this news on top of just hearing your interview on Makers & Mystics today. I'm constantly torn between family and career, we are not artists but your statements about growing your life sustainably totally apply to us. God bless and see you here (or there) soon, man!!!

Simon ArmourSorry to see you, Michelle and the kids go, Josh. A 26 acre farm sounds like reason enough. Best of luck with the move and settling back in. Hope we can swing a drink with the fellas before you do.

Emily ChristensenThat is so awesome! Although I no longer attend door of hope, I really cherished the time I spent there and getting to work with your kiddos in the childrens ministry. They are such amazing kids. It was back at the SE location when we did ALL NIGHT prayer that I first heard you sing. My husband and I will forever be fans. Your music and lyrics are a blessing to so many! I'll keep you and your family in my prayers! Many blessings in your next chapter. We'll look forward to future Roseland shows!

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Jeremy GilmourBack in February at your Asheville show I was super sad to initially hear that you would be moving away just a few weeks after I was to arrive in the Portland area. I truly hope you'll put on one more show here before you leave. I do wish you all the best though and pray God's blessings on your journey. Cannot wait for what music comes out of this.

Arian ArmstrongIt was so great to have an inside into the "why" behind some of the decisions we've all notice you make over the years...i.e. tour schedule, label, etc...and it made me appreciate even more the counter-cultural, true-to-self, 'family business" style way you've slowly but steadily built your career and fan base. We're all better for it! It inspired me to continue to do the same with art. Thanks and keep on keepin on!

Love you brother!
