Birth name: Joshua Radin Place of birth: Shaker Heights, Ohio Career highlights: His very first composition 'Winter' was used for hit series 'Scrubs'. He then later went on to have his songs included in shows like Grey's Anatomy, Brothers and Sisters, One Tree Hill and American Idol. You can also hear his music in movies like The Nanny diaries and the Last Kiss. Highest Charting Singles Include: 'You got grown' up to do'
Radin’s latest album, Simple Times, the follow-up to the charmingly lo-fi 2006 debut We Were Here, is released on April 12th by 14th Floor Records/Warner Brothers and sees him collaborate with producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith)
The album has already sold over 100,000 copies in the US and 500,000 downloads worldwide, including 5,000 through iTunes in the UK, and this is with no publicity or physical release.
The mood of his songs reflects the mood he’s in when he writes. “It just depends,” he says, “on how I’m feeling at the time.”
He even performed at the wedding of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi after a personal invitation from the sitcom/chatshow queen, who allegedly turned down offers from George Michael and Justin Timberlake.
