I first discovered Joshua Radin through the 2006 Zach Braff chick flick The Last Kiss — don't ask why or how I ended up watching it — but after one listen, I was hooked on "Star Mile" and the whole We Were Here album. To be fair, he probably owes his success equally to his talent and his friendships with Braff and Ellen DeGeneres. But that doesn't mean he isn't one of the most talented folk singer/songwriters out there. Closing your eyes and feeling the pure voice cascading over flowing guitar, dramatic orchestra strings, and lighthearted bells is a wonderful experience.
