Josh Gracin

“Cover Girl”

Average Joes Entertainment

“I want to sing. I want to write. I want to produce. I want to put myself on the chopping block,” admits Josh Gracin, newly signed to hot independent label Average Joes Entertainment. Signing with an indie has allowed the singer to grow and challenge himself while still providing an outlet for his product. Gracin’s first single for Average Joes is “Cover Girl,” and it’s going for adds August 2.

Gracin has been hard at work on his new album, which he co-produced with his drummer Kevin Murphy and recorded with his road band. “We aimed to paint that picture and give it a feel that everything is in the room with you,” he says. “I love those guys and I love having them on the record. The band was able to live with the songs and given the artistic freedom to bring in their interpretation to the music.”

The Michigan native won the hearts and ears of America after he auditioned for season two of American Idol while serving in the Marine Corps. Following his fourth place finish on Idol and the completion of his military service, Gracin signed with Lyric Street Records and released his self-titled debut album in June 2004. The album was RIAA-certified gold and spawned three top five singles—“I Want to Live,” “Stay With Me (Brass Bed),” and the No. 1 hit “Nothin’ to Lose.”
