About Josh Groban
11/24/13: Josh Groban's otherworldly popularity remains a mystery to some, but it's no conundrum to the people – some 25 million – who have purchased his albums. The latest project from the renowned tenor is "All That Echoes," and he's been crisscrossing the country to promote it. Simply put, you'll have to search far and wide for a place you won't be able to see Groban this fall. Along with opener Judith Hill, Groban kicked off his "In the Round" tour of North American on October 2 in Boise, Idaho and will wrap November 13 in Dallas, Texas. Of course a little more than a month doesn't seem like a ton of time to promote an album, but Grobin is packing in all that he can, with 23 shows on the books.
This tour isn't just Groban on stage. Instead, this "In the Round" experience gives fans a 360-degree concert experience thanks to a stage placed in the middle of the venue. The concept itself piggybacked on the concept of his "Straight to You" world tour, where fans were able to experience a concert that felt like it was being played in a small, intimate theater.
Groban wrapped up three sold-out nights at The Hollywood Bowl over the summer, playing to more than 50,000 people during the July 4th holiday and a show with the Colorado Symphony at Red Rocks. He followed that by selling out symphony shows, including appearances at Ravinia, Wolftrap and Franze Pavilion.
The LA native was also recently featured in the college humor film "Coffee Town," alongside Glenn Howerton, Ben Schwartz and Steve Little.
Groban set to show the world 'All That Echoes' (Updated January 23, 2013)
Come February 5, 2013 fans will know "All That Echoes" from Josh Groban. The sixth album to be released by the world-class vocalist will also be the fourth since 2003's "Closer," which produced the smash hit "You Raise Me Up" and went to the top spot on the Billboard album chart.
If you reminisce, it's still easy to feel like Groban has come a long way in a very short time. In 2006, his third studio album, "Awake," featured guest appearances by vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo and jazz pianist Herbie Hancock. A whirlwind 71-city tour followed, and he performed with the likes of Barbra Streisand and Mireille Mathieu. In short, his career was wide open and full of endless possibilities. Even as he recorded the holiday-themed "Noel," which released in 2007, he expressed a desire to fully explore film and TV opportunities, as well as tackle a role on Broadway.
Groban opened 2010 by performing the Star Spangled Banner at the BCS National Championship Game on January 7. Later in the year he paired with famed producer Rick Rubin for his fifth studio album, "Illuminations," then traversed 81 cities to promote the project, with appearances in North America, Europe and South America.
From Presidential Inaugurations in Washington to the Royal Albert Hall in London, the all-worldly Groban has performed on some of the world's biggest stages. It's no wonder that he's sold more than 25 million records worldwide, with that number sure to rise with the release of "All That Echoes."
Groban will play himself in a special Valentine's Day episode of "CSI: NY." He'll perform "Happy in My Heartache" in a restaurant during the show.
Josh Groban Tickets - The Voice in the Wilderness
The 'wilderness' of Los Angeles, California, to be exact: that's where Josh Groban was born, born to a Norwegian American mother and fathered by a Jewish American. He found he had a true voice for music in seventh grade but then had to put it on hold for the sake of his grades. It was when he attended Bridges Academy that he re-discovered his love for lyrical music, even playing the penny whistle to lead him along the way. 1997 and 1998 was his inner discovery, attending the Interlochen Arts Camp, majoring in musical theater and taking voice lessons. Doors started to open majorly after that....
Josh Groban Tickets - The Industry Heard Him Loud and Clear
A simple-minded 17-year-old Groban found his way to the reality of a real deal in the music business in the years of 1997 and 1998 when Grammy-winning producer and arranger David Foster got wind of him and signed him for several high-profile events -- such as the 1999 Grammy Awards as a stand-in for Andrea Bocelli, 'The Prayer' rehearsal with famous music artist Celine Dion, and even the January 1999 inauguration of Gray Davis as governor of California. And that was only the beginning.... It took only one year at Carnegie Mellon University before he was given a record contract with Warner Bros. Records, skyrocketing him into stardom on several levels. His first album 'Josh Groban' was indeed a blast into the stratosphere and a personal awakening for Groban, stating the real fact that his music is always a direct reflection of who he is and what's about. He's had the opportunity to perform with the likes of Sarah Brightman for her 2000-2001 La Luna Tour, record 'For Always' with Lara Fabian for the 'A.I.: Artificial Intelligence' soundtrack, and participate in the Andre Agassi Grand Slam Event for Children with Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Don Henley and Robin Williams. After one album, a second album was dying to come out -- entitled Closer and also produced by Foster. Featuring such powerful singles as 'You Raise Me Up' and 'Oceano,' the album achieved double-platinum status in mere heartbeats. You could also hear Groban in the soundtrack for 'The Polar Express' with the track 'Believe.
