Biography

Since childhood, doctors warned Joshua Radin—who, as a toddler suffered a punctured eardrum, that he ran a grave risk of piercing pain if he ever immersed himself in water. “I said, ‘Alright, I’m just going to live my life on land,’” he explained. That changed last year. He was penning Underwater in Los Angeles in near seclusion—an antidote to the last ... Read more in Amazon's Joshua Radin Store

Heartfelt Story-Telling 1 Sep 2004
By J. D. Fry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Most people, like myself, were drawn to this artist through the song "winter" featured in a Season 3 episode of 'Scrubs' on NBC. Once I heard the song and felt the emotional punch to the gut it delivered, I knew that the rest of the music this artist had to offer had to be as moving and powerful as this song. On "First Between 3rd and 4th" Joshua Radin makes good on this assumption.

Since the 'Scrubs' episode aired the song "Winter" was renovated slightly (from it's "demo" stage) to a more polished and produced ballad. But don't let that fool you, the song is as amazing now as the first time I heard it.

The rest of the songs on this album read like a peek into the mind of the artist: the songs are minimalist in arrangement, the lyrics spare no emotion or feeling. Radin opens up his heart through these songs and invites the listener to take a ride on the journey.

At times, he invokes the spirits of Elliot Smith and Nick Drake through his acoustic playing and breathy vocals. The result is one of those cd's that you want to pop in on a cool, rainy night with a glass of wine, a comfy chair and a blanket to listen to.

My only compliant on this album was that at six songs...it's too short. You just start settling in on the cd when it fades out, leaving you wanting more.

Of course, maybe that's a good thing.

best EP i've heard in years... 7 Sep 2004
By m. lowery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I work in the music biz - a label - i won't mention which one here though. i heard of him through zach braff's blog on the garden state site. anyway, i just listened to joshua radin's EP entitled 'First between 3rd and 4th" and i have to say, i am in love with this guy. his voice is reminicent of nick drake, elliot smith and paul simon - and his songwriting is incredible. perfect. i don't know what else i can say except go out and buy this guy's record and catch his live shows while he's still somewhat unknown because it won't be long before his shows are in huge venues, sold out for days. if you need a record to throw on while sitting by a fire, drinking a glass of good red wine with some close friends, i can't think of one better to do that with. maybe nick drake's 'pink moon." but it's a close call...

No One-Hit Wonder 1 Oct 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After watching the powerful Scrubs episode last year that ended with Winter, I frantically searched the internet to figure out who the singer was. I quickly found I was not the only person that was moved by the song. When I finally located Josh's website, I was amazed to find that he had no recordings for sale. Finally, months after the show aired, he came out with First Between 3rd & 4th. I bought it on the first day it was available.

I fully expected the CD, like those of so many other artists you hear for the very first time, to have the one hit packed onto a CD with a bunch of mediocre tracks. While I was surprised by how little material is on the CD (it's like 20 - 25 minutes), what is there, is quality. A great album overall. Winter isn't even my favorite song on it, and I love Winter.

Now, if we can only get Josh to come to Minneapolis, I am sure he could sell a lot more CDs.

By Mary Joy H. Laserna - Published on Amazon.com

his songs are captivating. you can't help but fall in love with his voice. winter is my all time favorite. he reminds me a lot of elliot smith who i thought... god bless his soul, was amazingly talented, and josh has that similar talent. i'm looking forward to hearing more from josh! his voice is truly unforgettable.

Amazing artist 7 Sep 2004
By Caren Zeefe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Heard one of Joshua's songs featured on an episode of Scrubbs and was blown away. Did some research to find out who the artist/singer was. I ordered the CD from his website. He's amazing! One of the best voices/songwriting I've heard in a very long time.
