|The Songs and Lyrics|
Josh Clayton's music permeates Lightsong as it echoes and enlarges the fictional adaptation of his life journey. In addition to nearly forty previously released songs Lightsong contains five songs previously unreleased. You can listen to each of these in its entirety using the link at the left.
Josh's early career was an aspiring musician's dream - dropping out of Brown University to focus on music, he moved to Los Angeles and with Michael Ward formed School of Fish. The band's debut album, with the hit "Three Strange Days", sold nearly half a million copies. After a second album, Josh began his journey as a solo artist. A friend once called Josh "a man who walked with one foot here on earth and one in the spirit world." And that connection underlies his last, posthumously released, solo album
