On Sale Now
Seattle, WA – Live Nation welcomes Joshua Radin and special guest Schuyler Fisk to the Triple Door on Tuesday, February 13, 2007 at 8 p.m.
Two years ago Joshua Radin was living in New York and trying to make his way as a painter and screenwriter when the opportunity for the open mic night came up. The delicate and heartbreaking "Winter" was a hit with the audience that night. With some friends' encouragement, it led to Radin following a career as a musician, releasing two independent albums, and garnering comparisons to classic singer-songwriters such as Nick Drake and Simon & Garfunkel, to modern-day luminaries such as Elliott Smith. His success eventually landed Radin deal with Columbia Records, which is re-releasing his second album, We Were Here.
While spotlighting Radin's distinctive style, We Were Here shows his range and appreciation for lyrics that cut deep and make a lasting impact. From the fragile and gut-wrenching "Sundrenched World," to the brighter and breezier "These Photographs," to the more expansive "Everything'll Be Alright (Will's Lullaby)" Radin is able to look into himself, tap into universal themes and deliver them with a fresh, unforgettable take.
Radin's popularity also continued to grow in an organic way. With the help of his management team, his indie release We Were Here eventually became a hit on iTunes, holding a top spot for over eight weeks and becoming one of the top 30 records in the country. The singer-songwriter from Cleveland found himself in a major label bidding war, getting five label offers in one week.
Radin chose Columbia Records since the label viewed his signing as a partnership more than anything. Columbia is re-releasing We Were Here, but the label isn't touching the album in any way. From the gentle production to the artwork, the disc remains exactly how Radin envisioned it. It simply allows Radin to do what he does best: create inspired music from the heart.
