JOSH LOVELACE

Josh Lovelace, Knoxville, Tennessee native and member of the Grammy Nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE, has been making music his entire life. His grandparents loved folk songs, especially Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie, both of whom wrote songs for children. Lovelace shared that love of folk music and as a young kid, would sing songs and put on shows for his family and friends. That love for music helped inspire him to become a professional musician. Now, a parent with two kids of his own, he is reliving the spirit of those early years creating and performing original music the whole family can enjoy.

His debut family album Young Folk was honored with a 2018 Parents’ Choice GOLD Award and a 2018 NAPPA Award. Lovelace has been featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition, Southern Living, & SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live and praised by HuffPost, School Library Journal, Zooglobble, The Rock Father and more.
