Editors’ Notes

If you're partial to what some folks call "whisper rock" — delicate and sometimes precious singer/songwriter based music characterized by acoustic guitars, string sections and of course wispy, hushed vocals like those of Nick Drake, Neil Halstead, Jack Johnson, Elliott Smith, etc. — then you're almost sure to fall for the songs of Joshua Radin if you haven't already. Radin's music was discovered by his friend actor/filmmaker Zach Braff who was so impressed with the aptly titled "Winter" (it sounds wintry) that he featured it on the soundtrack to his hit television show Scrubs. A deal with Columbia Records immediately followed and Radin's recordings were subsequently groomed for other young adult based television shows like Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, and Brothers And Sisters to name a few. Throughout We Were Here, Radin's slightly textured voice sounds like he was just awoken from a nap (especially on the opening song "Sundrenched World") as his lyrics confess the complexities of living the life of a hopeless romantic. Fellow tunesmith Priscilla Ahn peppers Radin's debut with similarly fragile harmonies, helping to give the album the feel of an indie-targeted film soundtrack that sounds more Garden State than Juno.

buy!!!

Buy this album.... Simply amazing

finally available

if you like folk/acoustic/indie buy this and it wont leave your stereo this year subtle beautiful gorgeous album! thankyou itunes for stocking it to the people

Finally here

Wow, the main review is scathing!! to say the least hey? While some of the points made up there bare some weight, this album isn't as bad as they'd make out by a long shot. Sure the singing is kind of sameish but i like his singing, and it's only for 12 tracks! Winter. Closer and Starmile are obvious stand outs, if you like them you'll like the rest. Not so much a review as another opinion really. the main review seems a little unbalanced to be honest, considering what they have to say about James freakin Blunt and other artists on here, who frankly pale in comparison. Maybe Joshua does only have a handful of good songs in him and is fortunate enough to know the right people, you still have to concede that there are songs of merit here.

Biography

Born: 14 June 1974 in Shaker Heights, OH

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Though Joshua Radin enjoyed singing during his childhood, the Cleveland native never intended to be a professional musician. Instead, he studied drawing and painting at Northwestern University, following his college years with stints as an art teacher, screenwriter, and art gallery employee. Eventually, Radin took a stab at songwriting and played one of his earliest compositions, "Winter," for his friend Zach Braff. The burgeoning actor/director took an immediate liking to the song, and "Winter"...
