One of Those Days - Joshua Radin

Here is an artist I absolutely ADORE. I have so many favs by this fella. Joshua Radin speaks to my soul people! I love his guitar and I love his voice and I LOVE the stuff his songs are made of!

"Radin began his artistic pursuits at an early age with art, acting and music, growing up in Cleveland, Ohio. Radin graduated from Northwestern University in drawing and painting. Radin's first recording was a demo of the song Winter produced by songwriter Cary Brothers. When a close friend, actor/filmmaker Zach Braff, heard the demo of "Winter"[1], he was immediately interested and featured the song on his show Scrubs in the episode "My Screw Up" early 2004. The song received an overwhelmingly positive response and gave Radin substantial exposure with the show's demographic. The songs "Today," "Closer," "Don't Look Away," and "These Photographs" were also used on the show. Braff also played the triangle in Radin's song "Today."

Since then, Radin's songs have been featured on Scrubs, Brothers and Sisters, Grey's Anatomy, American Idol, One Tree Hill, Lead Balloon, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Leverage (TV Series). His song "Brand New Day" was featured at the end of the Feb 2,2009 episode of House (TV Series). His song "Star Mile" was on The Last Kiss movie soundtrack, as well as Paperweight, which he sings in a duet with Schuyler Fisk, as well as "What If You", which was featured on soundtrack of the movie Catch and Release."

Another favorite, as I have many.....This one may be my VERY favorite. I'm just sayin....

I can appreciate this. While it's slow and soft (which I'm not normally into...), it's contemplative.

I would not have this on regular rotation daily, I can clearly see the value and the talent.

Yep. I'm pretty much in love too. Cleo, try his remake of Yaz's "Only You." You might find it a bit more chipper.
