He got a college degree from the University of Utah in Humanities – Strategic Communication in 2009.

Rosenthal’s following consists of Protestants, Mormons and most any other sect of the general Salt Lake City public. His albums: Cordillera, Renaissance and Narratives have sold thousands of copies in Utah. Rosenthal has headlined such venues as Sandy Amphitheater and the Rose Wagner Theater.

Utah’s Deseret News reviewed Rosenthal’s Christmas album:

“ Utah-based singer/songwriter Josh Rosenthal’s five-song holiday CD is not your typical Christmas release. This is evident once the dynamic acoustic-laden, roadtrip jam of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” begins. Rosenthal’s production can be heard throughout on original works “This Changes Everything” and “Before I Go,” and Steve Weisbergs’ “Christmas for Cowboys” and Lyle Lovett’s “Christmas Morning.” “Narratives” is a fresh collection of holiday music available on iTunes.

Early Years

Born in Brownwood, Texas, Rosenthal is the youngest of three brothers. Six months after he was born, Rosenthal moved to Benbrook, Texas where he attended Benbrook Elementary from kindergarten through fifth grade. After that he attended Monnig Middle School for a year. It was at that time is father, David Rosenthal, got a job in Lubbock, Texas to work at a maximum facility prison as an associate clinical psychologist.

Rosenthal’s first band – the Eddie Munsters – came about through AOL. Zak White and Michael Scott posted a need for a guitar player in a music chat room. Rosenthal, eager to start playing, contacted them and set up a time to meet. From there the Eddie Munsters broke up and Mikey Likes It was formed. The summer after his ninth grade year, Rosenthal became a Christian. Out of that experience he began playing in a band named Crash Test Pete with Zak White and Jordan Polk.

Rosenthal moved to Salt Lake City to work with Lee Mashburn at Hidden Valley Presbyterian.
