Born in Nebraska, Josh Rouse released his first album in Nashville in 1998, at age 26. Now, 17 years later, Rouse has a new album called The Embers Of Time. This one, too, was recorded mostly in Nashville, but also in Spain, where he moved in 2005. He still lives there with his wife, Spanish artist Paz Suay.

The album is open about the middle-aged, mid-career angst Rouse says he's currently experiencing — and he's open in this conversation, as well. Hear the interview and performance at the audio link above.
