Amoeba San Francisco - June 20th @ 6:00pm
Sonically, The Happiness Waltz (out now on Yep Roc) could easily find a home on the AM radio of the late 1970's, nestled between some of the biggest songs of the day. Lyrically, the album is very much of the present, featuring some of Rouse's most personal songs to date.
After nine acclaimed studio albums, residing all over the U.S., and touring the world, Rouse found his muse for The Happiness Waltz in what is most near and dear to him, his new family. In 2005, the Nebraska native moved to Spain, where he now spends the majority of his time with his wife and two young children. The thoughts and perspective gained from his experience as a husband and father pervades the 12 songs that make up The Happiness Waltz.
Also catch Josh Rouse at the Great American Music Hall on June 21st.
