Josh Groban Releasing "All That Echoes" in February 2013
Josh Groban literally came out of obscurity and straight into the spotlight a little more than ten years ago and he’s been incredibly successful ever since. He got his first big break when David Foster, after hearing a recording of the then high school student singing “All I Ask of You” (from Phantom of the Opera, asked him to fill in for Andrea Bocelli during a rehearsal of “The Prayer” with Celine Dion.
It all went pretty quickly from that point forward with Groban releasing his debut self-titled album in 2001. It was in 2003, however, when his album, Closer, produced the hit “You Raise Me Up” that people really took notice of this young male opera singer. Soon, it was a standard choice for contestants trying out on American Idol which only increased his popularity.
One incredible feat does really stand out, however. In mid-October 2007, Groban released his holiday album, Noel, and, although there were still months until Christmas, it went on to sell 5.5 million copies and became the best-selling album of the year!
Now, he’s preparing to release his sixth effort, All That Echoes, on February 5, 2013 which will be his follow-up to 2010’s Illuminations and seems pretty happy about it all. In a press statement, he said: "From beginning to end, this project has blossomed with absolute joy and inspiration. Together with Rob Cavallo and all the incredible collaborators, we set out to create songs that could bridge the old and the new, the light and the dark of life and love ... all that echoes in our souls. This album makes me feel good, and I hope others feel the same way."
With that sort of enthusiasm, I’m sure his fans can’t wait to hear what he’s been working on.
