Columbia Records Set to Release 'We Were Here,' the Debut Album From Acclaimed Singer-Songwriter Joshua Radin
In Stores Tuesday, June 13
Columbia Records is set to release We Were Here -- the much-anticipated full-length debut album from heralded singer-songwriter Joshua Radin -- on Tuesday, June 13.
Previously available exclusively on iTunes (where it became the #1 bestselling folk album and reached Top 30 overall after its initial release in February 2006), We Were Here includes the iTunes Top 10 singles "Closer" and "Only You" as well as "Winter," "Star Mile," and "Everything'll Be Alright (Will's Lullaby)." "Closer," "Star Mile," and "Winter" may be heard on Joshua's myspace webpage (http://www.myspace.com/joshuaradin) where the three tunes have racked up more than 127,000 plays.
The plaintive and emotive songs of Joshua Radin have been heard on the NBC television sitcom "Scrubs," the FOX television drama "North Shore," and the ABC medical drama "Grey's Anatomy." His song, "Star Mile," is slated for inclusion in the film and soundtrack for the upcoming film "Last Kiss," starring Zach Braff and Rachel Bilson while "What If You," another track from We Were Here, will be featured in "Catch & Release," starring Jennifer Garner.
An old-school tunesmith and lyrical craftsman who forgoes technical gimmickry in favor of deeply felt poetics, emotional resonance, finely spun melodies and unforgettable performances, Joshua Radin released his first indie EP (now out-of-print and highly collectible), First Between 3rd and 4th, in July 2004.
Radin's live performances have made him a favorite emerging artist among discerning music fans in his native Los Angeles. His legendary Monday night residency at the Los Angeles Hotel Cafe led to a tour of than 15 cities across America in the autumn of 2005 with Rachel Yamagata, Tom McRae, Butch Walker and the Cary Brothers. Last year, he sold-out two concerts at New York's fabled Joe's Pub. Most recently, he performed an acoustic version of "Winter" on "Last Call with Carson Daly."
