CD Review: Josiah Siska – World Gone Mad – by Preshias Harris for Country Music News International Magazine & Radio Show
In a world that’s gone mad, it’s the little
things in life that help to keep us sane. That’s the spirit behind “World Gone
Mad” (Black River Entertainment), the new single from Josiah Siska.
It’s a warm, gentle ballad that starts out
saying that it would be nice to have more money to buy a house and not worry
about unpaid bills, but then Josiah tells the woman he loves:
For now it can wait, I’m content just to
make it home to you
It’s enough that you know I’ve done all
that I can do
I’ve got everything just knowing that
you have a safe place to fall
In a world gone mad.
It’s a heartfelt sentiment that is
timeless, but somehow seems particularly timely now in these troubled and
uncertain days everywhere in the world. Josiah’s sure but gentle voice is
perfectly suited to the lyrics that will touch the heart of the listener. The song is a warm weave of hope and optimism
that might remind you of John Denver’s vocal stylings.
“World Gone Mad” was written by
award-winning hit-songwriter Doug Johnson, GRAMMY-Nominated songwriter Dave
Gibson, Walker Montgomery and Nick Sturms, and produced by Doug Johnson and
Sawyer Brown’s Mark Miller. It will be digitally available to stream and
download September 11, 2020.
Josiah was a popular contestant on the
Farewell Season of American Idol, with his audition clip receiving over
6 million views on Facebook and YouTube, in addition to the millions of viewers
who watched his performance live on TV. He recently
signed a record and publishing deal with Black River Entertainment, and “World
Gone Mad” is his debut single from the label.
Hailing from Gwinnette, Georgia, Josiah is
a self-proclaimed “Rhinestone Redneck” whose voice blends the feel of classic
country with the sound of today. He does full justice to the warm and
comforting lyrics of “World Gone Mad”.
