    Default Josh Groban

    I did not like him at first, not really my style. But I have come around, and respect his actions (charity), and his songs more so.

    About Josh

    Groban's 'hands on' approach in the creative process of "Awake" is reflected in several Groban penned and produced songs along with musical contributions from Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Dave Matthews, Glen Ballard, Eric Mouquet, John Ondrasik (Five for Fighting) Marius DeVries, David Foster, Imogen Heap and Herbie Hancock.

    "Awake's" 13 new songs including the just released first single, "You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)" show the Grammy nominated Groban's tremendous growth as a vocalist, producer and songwriter since he first appeared on the musical landscape.

    "I learned from touring that my fans are really open-minded, musical, intelligent people and I feel like they want to come on this new journey with me. The music still sounds like it's coming from my heart and my soul and my voice. That is always the most important thing to me. My goal on "Awake" was to create the music and find the best people to help me create it," commented Groban.

    With a lineup of stellar producers including Marius DeVries, Guy Sigsworth, Glen Ballard and David Foster, the album contains songs in Italian, Spanish and of course English. An early stand-out, "February Song" with Josh on keyboards came to the 25-year-old Los Angeles native on a sleepless night. “I wanted to write a song that melodically and lyrically represented the craziness I felt in that moment in the dark dark space. I walked over to the piano and it just came to me in a half hour in the most magical way."

    Additionally, Groban recorded a suite of two stunningly haunting songs where he harmonizes with longtime idols Ladysmith Black Mambazo. The first song, the Groban/Dave Mattthews penned "Lullaby" is sung a cappella and the follow up, the South African song, "Weeping" which Josh first heard on a trip to South Africa. "The musical tapestry of the country and their heated history, the honor of meeting Nelson Mandela and visiting schools in Soweto was totally inspiring. And, it was a dream of a lifetime for me to sing with Ladysmith in the studio. I've loved them from the moment I heard Paul Simon's Graceland."

    Josh Groban burst on to the international music scene in 2001 with the release of his self-titled debut album featuring the hit single, "To Where You Are." His follow up CD "Closer" with the smash hit "You Raise Me Up" brought enormous success to the young singing sensation. He has made scores of television appearances beginning with Ally McBeal and continuing with countless performances on Oprah Winfrey, Good Morning America, The Today Show, two PBS specials, the Superbowl, the Oscars and the closing ceremonies of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics with an audience of over 2 billion people. His first PBS Special went on to become the No. 1 selling DVD of 2002. On the touring front, Groban started out his now legendary 40-city concert tour (which sold out in a record breaking 20 minutes) and then went straight forward to a two year arena tour across the US. A Josh Groban tour for 2007 is expected to be announced shortly.

    He's gay and I don't like his attitude toward music. He reminds me of another one of those posers like James Blunt whose success can only lead to the slowing down of all mankind.

    I'm not a fan of his music, but I find him talented. I don't find him creepy, just that he's someone I won't be interested to read more about. I prefer James Blunt and I quite like his song "You Are Beautiful". I used to put it on repeat mode for quite some time.

    Young guys think if they don't shave, it makes them look older, but really it just makes them look like young guys who haven't shaved. He should shave.

    Rocky: What difference does it make if he's gay?

    IMO he has a nice voice but his music is really really boring. In that interview he sounds REALLY pretentious.

    I'll say ISFp, even though I generally <3 ISFps. He's a young, arrogant, pretentious ISFp.

    Fe-ISFp is my best guess. If not that, some INFj.

    Well he certainly VIs alpha as all get out. Look at that baby face, lol.

    I can't say I've given a lot of thought to his typing, but I don't see any problems with Fe-ISFp.

    Additionally, I love Josh Groban.

    Default Josh Groban

    So what do you all think that Josh Groban is? I couldn't help but notice his strikingly similar mannerisms here to an SEI that I know. . .

    He certainly seems to have a knack for nuances in his singing, creating a resonnating vibe that is difficult to ignore...In other words, he seems to know how to play to the senses-- particularly the sense of hearing, but also to sensual feelings in the body. idk, though, I've never seen him perform live, this is just what I get from listening to him through the stereo.

    Hmm, ISFp seems like a possibility. Can't really think of what else he'd be, but I'll look into it.

    In the interviews I've seen he comes across rather differently than his music style, my guess has been SEI for awhile

    Hmmm I suppose it is possible that he is an INFj. But, he appears more ISFp to me. . . he has an SF feel to him rather then an NF feel.

    NF's have a tendency of being all into the future and not very grounded in the present. They also tend to not be the slightest bit sensual and keep those sensual feelings deep deep down inside. . . however, I agree with the IxFx.

    Looking at him a bit more, ENFp is jumping out at me now.

    He's an IEE/SEI morph to me. What do you guys think?
