(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Sept. 8, 2009--Sparrow Records singer/songwriter Josh Wilson releases his highly anticipated sophomore label release, Life Is Not A Snapshot, today. Wilson will debut music from his latest project on labelmate Matthew West’s “The Motions” tour beginning next month.

The follow up to his critically acclaimed Sparrow Records debut Trying to Fit the Ocean In A Cup, Life Is Not A Snapshot, co-produced by Wilson, is a seven-song collection of contemporary theological musings that reflect Josh’s remarkable penchant for framing cold and calculated questions of faith into wild, unbridled musical expressions of trust.

“I feel like I am called to challenge and encourage the Church,” Wilson explains. “I want to make people think, particularly about why they believe what they believe. As soon as your faith is challenged, that is when you’ll realize that Sunday school answers are not enough. Hopefully I can encourage people to dig deeper into their faith.”

Drawing on musical influences as diverse as pop, folk, and good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll, Life Is Not A Snapshot creates a rollicking atmosphere of electrically charged sonic satisfaction. From the jangling guitars on “Sing,” to the thought-provoking cadence of “Before The Morning” and the Beatle-esque strains of “Do You Want To Know,” Josh creates melodic flights of fancy that take you on a journey beyond what is to what should be.

Fans will be compelled to sing along with his little-bit-rock ‘n’ roll treatment of “Listen,” tap their toes to “How To Fall,” and ponder along with the intimate ballad, “Right in Front of Me.” On his richly textured, gently nuanced performance of the world’s most famous hymn, “Amazing Grace,” Wilson directs listeners beyond the performance and toward the Giver of all good gifts.

“We may live in snapshot moments,” he says, “but those moments are not Life. Life is not one point in time but all of the points in time between drawing our first and last breaths. Because we have experienced the faithfulness of God in the past we can be secure in the present and trust in the One who holds the future.”

The debut single from Life Is Not A Snapshot, “Sing,” is currently vying for adds at both the AC and CHR radio formats, debuting today at No. 30 on the Radio & Records Christian Adult Contemporary Monitored chart. Wilson will be performing “Sing” and other selections from his latest offering on tour with award-winning artist Matthew West this fall. The tour, additionally featuring speaker Lance McAfee, whose late brother was impacted by West’s song “The Motions,” kicks off Oct. 15 and will visit select cities through early November.
