Release date: February 2011
See You is the third studio album from Christian musician, Josh Wilson, released on February 8, 2011.
Wilson stretched himself musically throughout the entire recording process, mastering over 20 instruments outside of the typical grand piano, keyboard, classical, acoustic and electric guitar.
For this project, Wilson teamed up with sought-after producer Matt Bronleewe (Natalie Imbruglia, Jars of Clay, Selena Gomez) and after months in the studio, the end result is what many are calling a 12-track masterpiece. In its entirety, See You is a vivid collection of songs that focus on the evidence of God at work in people's lives.
"Something I've been learning over the past decade is that when we want to see God, we have to depend less on our physical eyes and more on the Holy Spirit," says Wilson. "It's the subtle, still small voice of God."
"I Refuse," the first single from the project impacting radio now, evolved as Wilson was reading David Platt's perspective-shattering book, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream. Simultaneously, the 1000-year flood hit Nashville, devastating entire communities on May 1, 2010, giving Wilson a very personal and real situation from which to draw from as he completed the track.
"Once the flood hit, the temptation was to simply pray and ask God to rally the community and bring other people to help," Wilson explains. "I was using prayer as an excuse to not do anything myself. But as a Christian that's not enough. We're the hands and feet of Jesus; we're supposed to do something. So that phrase came back to me... I refuse to do nothing."
