About:

Joshua Radin

Love and the complications surrounding it have long proven to be Joshua Radin's songwriting forte. Though he never intended to be a live performer, there was little choice when the first song he ever wrote, "Winter," was featured on an episode of "Scrubs." The resulting fervor around the song soon led to a record deal, and over the last decade, Radin has toured the world countless times, sold hundreds of thousands of records and topped the iTunes charts, earned raves from Rolling Stone to The Guardian, performed on "The Tonight Show," "Conan," and more, played Ellen DeGeneres' wedding at her personal request, and had his songs featured in more than 150 different films, commercials, and TV shows.Radin, born in Cleveland and now living in Los Angeles, recently released a double live CD featuring all of his most popular songs in April 2016. His new album, The Fall, will be released in January 2017.

 

Jillette Johnson

 

 

For Jillette Johnson the journey has been as integral to her musical experience as the destination. Jillette, who began taking music lessons and penning songs as a child, has been performing live since she was 12, captivating audiences with her sultry, thoughtful piano-driven tunes. The musician, now 24, has spent the last decade cultivating her sound and defining her unique perspective. When she moved to New York City from her small town of Pound Ridge, NY at 18, Jillette was already familiar with the city and its clubs, from Sidewalk Cafe to The Bitter End to Rockwood Music Hall.

In early 2012, Jillette inked a deal with Wind-up Records, who were drawn in by her track “Cameron,” an inspirational number that explores the struggle of a transgendered person whom Jillette knows. The song appeared on the singer’s five-track EP, Whiskey & Frosting, which came out in August 2012, a prelude to her June 25, 2013 Wind-up Records’ debut album release, Water In A Whale. Culled from six months worth of recording sessions at Wind-up’s New York studio, the album traces Jillette’s experiences and ideas about living in the city and being young in today’s society. She finished the album fall 2012, just before going out on tour, and as it turned out those weeks on the road shifted the musician’s sensibilities.

The album, which features the five tracks found on Whiskey & Frosting, centers on Jillette’s soaring vocals and the sparse, haunting piano lines she wrote to accompany them. Produced by Peter Zizzo (Vanessa Carlton, Avril Lavigne) and Michael Mangini (Joss Stone, David Byrne), the album reveals Jillette’s pensive reflections on the world around her, all of which lead to a deeper understanding of self-identity. The real power comes from those songs about the musician herself, however and the rest of the album follows in tone.

Jillette brings her impassioned live aesthetic onto the album, infusing each number with a sense of intimacy and fervor. The songs shift from light-hearted buoyancy of “Bassett Hound” to the heavy urgency of “Cameron,” showcasing a viable array of musical – and lyrical – inspiration. For Jillette, whose years of experience and practice have set her up for what’s to come, the goal is to bring these songs to life for as many people as possible.
