Josh Rouse taps into something deep inside himself to craft his music, and those songs in turn tap into listeners in a deep, unflinching way. Only the best songwriters have that skill, but it’s something that Rouse appears to be able to pull off each and every time he steps into a studio or onto a stage. That’s not to say that Rouse is a dour performer; onstage, he’s often affable and funny, a consummate entertainer as well as an artist. It’s hard not to get on his wavelength, and we’re sure that the crowd at the Crescent Ballroom will appreciate Rouse’s skills when they see him.
