Here is The Secret You Don’t Know About Multi-Talented Artist Joshua Sade. It’s a love song gone wrong for singer/songwriter and multi-talented artist Joshua Sade James and his new single, “All Fall Down” — available now!

Fresh from his forthcoming sophomore album release, JSJ — slated for June of this year — “All Fall Down” was written about mistrust, dishonesty, and miscommunication in a relationship.

“Without these core attributes enforced by love, we… ‘All Fall Down,” he explains.

First written about three years ago, the song’s bittersweet inspiration was related to a relationship and breakup he’d had while in college. “It allowed me to do a lot of self-reflection,” he shares.  “I wrote the song after the second time we broke up, and just got to think about how truly toxic we were towards each other.

“There was cheating, there was manipulation, there was just a lot of baggage neither of us knew how to get rid of. We just sort of gave it to each other because it was easier than being alone.

“It was interesting to shoot this video with a current love interest when it’s actually about a previous one,” he continues, laughing. “When writing or hearing the song in my head, I wanted this song to be like if a sad, old clown got drunk, broke into the old carnival where he used to work, and started up the merry-go-round, only for it to not fully work.

“I think I achieved that in both the song and the video.”

“It was a blessing to shoot this with Sagi and my good friend Esther,” James adds of director Sagi Kahane-Rapport and actor Esther Vlessing. “Also, shoutout to Dylan Spilberg and Leo Vargas for making this happen!”

“All Fall Down” serves as a preview for what’s to come from the artist’s upcoming EP, JSJ (Joshua Sade James).

A Sheridan College alum for Musical Theatre Performance — and winning the Sheridan: Pop Award for Outstanding Performance — James also co-choreographed, co-directed and starred in the College’s PREP Production original, Revue Diva Dynasty. Hailing from the tri-city Kitchener/Waterloo area — with country artist Jamie Warren for a dad — he’s been featured coast to coast, including Newfoundland to play ‘Pepper’ in Mamma Mia!, The Calgary Stampede’s Talent Search, Ontario’s Western Fair’s Rise2Fame, PEI’s Charlottetown Festival, and more.

In addition to his extensive performing and recording work, Joshua Sade James is an active advocate for mental health rights and proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community.

About Shea Diamond

Shea Diamond is a singer and songwriter who makes soul-rooted music of resistance and liberation. Based in New York City, she was born in Little Rock, Arkansas and spent portions of her upbringing in Memphis, Tennessee and Flint, Michigan. Repressed and marginalized throughout her childhood for not accepting her gender role, she ran away at the age of 14 and entered foster care. Upon her emancipation, she lacked the means to pay for gender reassignment surgery, committed armed robbery, and spent roughly a decade in prison. While incarcerated, she developed her powerful singing style and forthright approach to songwriting. 
Shea was released from prison in 2009 and relocated to New York. She continued to work on music and became deeply involved in the transgender rights movement. A clip of her performing an original song titled “I Am Her,” a gutbucket blues-soul anthem for outsiders, impressed hit songwriter Justin Tranter (Imagine Dragons’ “Believer,” Selena Gomez’s “Lose You To Love Me”, Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”) which led to a deal with the Warner-distributed Asylum label. She has performed at pride events and HRC galas all over the country and has fans in everyone from Sam Smith and Demi Lovato to Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden.

LGBTQ ICONS

For years, Norwegian has emblazoned prominent LGBTQ icons beloved by the community on the tail fins of its fleet. Below are just a few recent tail fin heroes who paved the way for equality, expression and education:

Harvey Milk – Milk was one of the world’s first openly gay politicians and civil rights leader that fought boldly for equality for LGBTQ individuals and other minorities in the United States. Tail fin debuted March 2019.

Oscar Wilde – Wilde was an Irish poet and literary genius, world famous for “The Importance for Being Earnest” and “Picture of Dorian Gray.” He set a path for future artists to express themselves ‘earnestly’. Tail fin debuted October 2018.

Freddie Mercury – Mercury was world-famous as the outrageously talented lead singer of the legendary British rock band, Queen. His flamboyant stage presence and mega-hit songs were recently immortalized in the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Tail fin debuted July 2017.

Greta Garbo – Garbo was a Swedish-American Hollywood icon, best known for her Oscar-nominated roles in Anna Christie and Romance. Tail fin debuted in January 2016 (first-ever tail fin hero on a 787 Dreamliner)“Norwegian Air’s continued support of the Harvey Milk Foundation’s global programing is represented more than Harvey Milk as a tail fin hero on their aircraft – he is a symbol of courage and inclusion for which the airline strives. We are proud to be marching alongside Norwegian crew and staff at NYC’s WorldPride March in honor of a milestone year for the LGBTQ community. Although we have come a long way since Stonewall, we continue what Harvey Milk started four decades ago, pushing equality and acceptance evermore forward,” said Stuart Milk, nephew and co-founder, Harvey Milk Foundation.
