Josh Wilson’s latest album, That Was Then, This Is Now (Sparrow Records), earned the singer/songwriter the best street week of his nine-year career. While fans may recognize him for his radio hits like “I Refuse,” “Fall Apart,” “Before The Morning” and his current single (the title track from That Was Then, This Is Now), they may not know Wilson is actually quite the musical virtuoso.
