Joshua Michael Garrels (born September 25, 1980) is an American singer-songwriter.
Josh Garrels is a singer-songwriter, hip-hop, pop producer, and orchestral folk composer from South Bend, Indiana. His music combines traditional folk music with other musical elements and the nontraditional exploration of Christian themes. He currently lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife and three children. Since 2005 he has co-founded the record label, Small Voice Records and released the albums: Over Oceans, Jacaranda, and Lost Animals and Home.
Garrels released his sixth album in June 2011 titled Love & War & The Sea In Between. Christianity Today called the album “prophetic, incisive, achingly human, and longingly spiritual,” and rated it as their 2011 Album of The Year. In 2012, Garrels collaborated with the music collective Mason Jar Music to film the music-documentary movie The Sea In Between in which Mason Jar and Josh traveled to the remote Mayne Island, BC to perform music on several of Mayne’s most beautiful locations.
