Love this album

I bought this a LONG time ago and still love it today. It's a beautiful story - the album. He takes you on this beautiful trek of heartache and love and beauty in all things and you get to just sit back, relax, listen and understand. It touches the heart, interrupts the soul and allows you to stop hiding in your own world and enter his. Beautiful accompaniment to every song. Invisible Man is the most wonderful song, in my mind. Jessie is perfect. Painted Desert Serenade couldn't hold more wonderment - it's just a great album. Not a single song is a misfire. I adore Joshua Kadison - and this record in particular.

About Joshua Kadison

Best known for his 1993 ballad "Jessie," Joshua Kadison began playing piano and writing songs when he was 12 years old. Influences on his songwriting included Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, and Gershwin, although Kadison's melancholic brand of adult contemporary pop was just as indebted to Elton John. After his mother's death, he left his Hollywood Hills home and resettled in Nashville, where he signed a contract with SBK Records. His debut album, Painted Desert Serenade, was released in 1993 and went platinum within two years, largely driven by the Top Ten single "Jessie." The song was also a hit in Europe, where Kadison's subsequent albums found a more welcome audience than they did at home. ~ John Bush
