"This acoustic EP is so special to me," shares Josh. "Playing songs like this, broken down in these acoustic forms, is when I feel like my most authentic self and I think they have become the truest form of me as an artist. Getting to share them in this way is special because for most of these songs, this is how they were written. They started just me and an acoustic guitar, so to keep them in that vein and play them in the original way that they came out, feels authentic to me and to the songs. That's why I'm really excited for people to hear these broken down, raw versions of these songs
"Recording these songs out in the middle of nowhere Millville, CA was one of the highlights of my year. I hope you enjoy watching and listening to these simple versions of some of my favorite songs from Where The Glory Is."
Baldwin is a songwriter and worship leader who joined the Bethel Music Collective in 2014. Josh is known for his songs "Praises", featured on Bethel Music's Have it All, "You Deserve It All", from his solo project Rivers, and "Stand in Your Love", a song featured on Bethel Music's album VICTORY (2019) which reached #2 on the Christian Billboard charts.
His latest album, Where the Glory Is (2022), is a reflection of his journey with the Lord and a return to the roots of pure worship. This album's lead single, "There Is Freedom", reached No. 21 on the Billboard Hot Christian Adult Contemporary chart and No. 30 on the Hot Christian Songs chart and the album has recieved over 9 million streams across digital platforms in the US.
