I'm a musician and songwriter named Josh Haden. I founded a band called Spain over twenty years ago and also write and record music for lots of different projects. I'm probably best known for a country/gospel song called "Spiritual" that was recorded by Johnny Cash on his 1996 Unchained album, and also for the debut 1995 Spain album called "The Blue Moods Of Spain".
I want to thank everyone for supporting my music and for specifically helping to make the new Spain album "Carolina" a reality: it was funded in large part through this Bandcamp subscription page!
"Carolina" was a huge success. Lots of amazing press and great reviews. We toured for a month in Europe, and started a weekly residency here in Los Angeles which is still going strong. More European touring is on the horizon.
Moving forward, I'm splitting up future subscriptions between this page and the Spain bandcamp subscription page (spaintheband.bandcamp.com). The Spain page will be focussed on producing the new 2017 Spain album. This page will be focussed on two projects:
1. Solo country music album
My family has a long history in country music. One of my upcoming projects is to record a solo acoustic album recounting some of the favorite tunes my father used to play as a child with the Haden Family in the 1940s and 1950s. Listen to "Charlie Haden Family & Friends - Rambling Boy" (youtu.be/W0fSV6snzVs) or my sisters' The Haden Triplets album (youtu.be/7NBTwmjqUrY) for more.
2. Solo bass album
I've been working on solo bass material for years (see deadseascrollsmusic.bandcamp.com) and I'm going to continue that trend here as well.
If you'd like to help support these projects and more I've set up a subscription service here. Levels of support start at $25.00/year and include subscriber-only demos, videos, completed songs and subscriber-only posts.
Once again, the Spain bandcamp page has a subscription service as well centered on the Spain album and you can find it at: spaintheband.bandcamp.com.
$25/year subscribers also get a copy of one album produced here. Higher levels of support include a signed copy of the album, tickets to future shows, and more.
Here are a couple of great reviews of "Carolina": www.popmatters.com/review/spain-carolina/; nodepression.com/album-review/step-darkness-spain
Here's a great recent interview with me about the making of "Carolina" and more: www.songwritingmagazine.co.uk/interviews/interview-spains-josh-haden/32560
The video here by the way was directed and filmed by my seven-year old son, Chase.
Many thanks! Best from Josh
