Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Joshua Radin mixes acoustic eloquence with dyed-in-the-wool Americana storytelling.
Born and raised in Ohio, Joshua turned to music when he moved to New York City, bought a guitar, and taught himself to play and write songs. Since then he has affected countless listeners, selling over one million records, generating more than a billion streams, and garnering a gold plaque for his single I’d Rather Be With You. His delicate and heartbreaking music has garnered comparisons to classic singer-songwriters such as Nick Drake and Simon & Garfunkel, and to modern-day luminaries such as Elliott Smith.
Among many highlights, US first ladies Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden personally handpicked his song Brand New Day for a commercial in support of US troops. In addition to memorable performances on Ellen, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Conan, and the Today Show, he famously serenaded avowed super fan Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi during their wedding. Beyond sold out headline shows on four continents, he’s performed alongside Ed Sheeran, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Sheryl Crow, Tori Amos, Imogen Heap, and more.
