Josh Heinrichs getting mad iTunes love

Josh Heinrichs Friends 250x250 Josh Heinrichs getting mad iTunes loveIt’s great news any time a local musician drops a new album, but it’s often hard to gauge that album’s impact in the greater (read: outside SGF) consciousness. One exception to the rule is local music’s reggae road warrior, onetime Jah Roots singer Josh Heinrichs, who just released Josh Heinrichs & Friends last week on iTunes and immediately watched the collabo-heavy album (Heinrichs plays on it with members of The Wailers, Katchafire and 77 Jefferson, as well as Cas Haley and more), climb the music download site’s reggae charts. The album got as high as #5, putting him in some rarified company, including two men named Marley (As of this writing the album is still at #33 on the iTunes chart, which is still an excellent showing) and landed his CD artwork on the iTunes Reggae front page as a featured album. National-level love for an SGF artist? We’ll take it anytime.
