Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

JOSHUA RADIN

We Were Here

2006-07-05

Though he had always enjoyed singing during his childhood in Cleveland, OH, Joshua Radin had never intended to be a musician. He studied drawing and painting in college, and only after stints working in a gallery, as an art teacher, and as a screenwriter did he decide to give songwriting a try. He played a piece he wrote, "Winter," for friend Zach Braff, who liked it so much he got the song onto Scrubs, the television show he was on. After fans began to request more of his music, Rabin decided to seriously pursue it as a career, and soon he signed to Columbia Records, which released his debut album, We Were Here, in 2006. –Marisa Brown, AMG
