Joshua Radin joined by Sheryl Crow on upcoming CD; new tour dates

Joshua Radin's new album Onward and Sideways is set for release on Feb. 10 via Glass Bead Music.

Written over the course of a year, mainly from a hotel bedroom in his girlfriend's hometown of Stockholm, Radin returns to his roots, penning intimate, expressive songs that chronicle a real-time journey from adoration to true love.

Known for his precise, gentle vocals and penchant for vivid songwriting, the 13-track album's dynamic production is evident on blues-tinged opener "We'll Keep Running Forever," leading into the countryish "Belong" and "Angels."

Radin's passionate vocals, and guitar strumming create a vibe intimate and robust, with strings and pianos tastefully layered from track to track, and his songwriting reaching its poetic apex on the closing track "My Baby."

Harmonic lead single "Beautiful Day" features piano accents, subtle jazz brushes, and a guest vocal by Radin's former touring mate, Sheryl Crow. 

A tour starts in February in conjunction with charity Little Kids Rock, a national non-profit committed to revitalizing music education in under-served public schools across the country. Radin will invite kids onstage with him to join in playing "Beautiful Day" in select cities, as well as sell handmade bracelets with his most inspiring lyrics, with a portion of the proceeds going directly to the charity.
