IT'S BEEN A WHIRLWIND YEAR FOR JOSH GROBAN


Josh Groban "you Raise Me Up"




(Los Angeles, CA) - After a whirlwind year and a half following the release of his 2015 album Stages, multi-platinum recording artist, songwriter, and actor Josh Groban closes out 2016 with a lot to celebrate, including a No. 1 single on the Adult Contemporary radio chart with "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." He also scored a 2017 Grammy Award for "Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album" for his album Josh Groban: Stages Live and earned rave reviews for his Broadway debut in the hit show Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.


Groban ends 2016 having scored his sixth No. 1 single on Billboard's Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart with his new version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." In 2007, he topped the same chart for three weeks with his rendition of "I'll Be Home For Christmas." Groban is also starring in the hit Broadway musical, Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 - his Broadway debut, which has earned him glowing notices. The New York Times raved that "Josh Groban is absolutely wonderful...he invests his singing with the pain and frustration that define Pierre. And his acting is superb, as he all but trembles with the existential despair that courses through Pierre's veins." Time Out NY said: "Josh Groban plays the melancholy Pierre with intensity and a simply ravishing voice."


In April 2015, Groban released his seventh studio album Stages - a collection of some of the greatest musical theater songs of all time. It was certified gold and earned Groban his second Grammy Award nomination for "Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album." (His first was for 2007's best-selling Christmas album Noel - the second best-selling holiday album of the Nielsen Music era.) In February 2016, Groban released the CD/DVD Stages Live, which featured his performances of the songs from Stages recorded at the Los Angeles Theater in downtown L.A. for a PBS special entitled Josh Groban: Stages Live.The album has earned Groban a 2017 Grammy nomination for "Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album."


Groban toured extensively in support of Stages and Stages Live between September 2015 and August 2016, including hitting the road for the extensive North American tour "Josh Groban: On Stage."


Grobangraced the cover of the New York Times Arts & Leisure section this past Sunday with a feature about how he underwent "boot camp" to prepare for his role as Pierre in The Great Comet. Read the story HERE.

Josh Groban




Los Angeles, CA - Multiplatinum recording artist Josh Groban releases the holiday song "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" on Warner Bros. Records. The track is currently available via all digital retailers and streaming services (Apple Music and Spotify). This is the first holiday music Groban has released since his 2007 Grammy-nominated 6x platinum album Noel.


Groban will make several TV appearances after Thanksgiving, including The Today Show on Monday, November 28th, and will also perform on NBC's annual holiday special Christmas at Rockefeller Center.


THE GREAT COMET opened on Broadway to glowing reviews on Monday, November 14th at the Imperial Theatre (249 West 45th Street, NY). The New York Times raved that "Josh Groban is absolutely wonderful...he invests his singing with the pain and frustration that define Pierre. And his acting is superb, as he all but trembles with the existential despair that courses through Pierre's veins."

THE GREAT COMET is a theatrical experience like no other. Dave Malloy's inspired adaptation of a 70-page slice of War and Peace puts audiences just inches away from Tolstoy's brash young lovers, as they light up Moscow in an epic tale of romance and passion.
