Before he could even walk, Josh Radin developed an interest in music, having grown up in a house where his parents played “really good music all the time.”
“But I never thought I would be able to make my own music,” he says. It all seemed so intimidating. One day, I picked up a guitar, learned a few chords and just started writing, and I haven’t looked back.”
Radin has since put out five albums, including his newest, titled Wax Wings. The inspiration behind his latest project was a lost love. “I felt that even though it ended years ago, I still had a few things I needed to say, and here I’ve said them. Hopefully now I’ll be able to move on.”
Currently on the road, touring with fellow singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson, Radin loves how amazing and inspiring it is to perform night after night. “I once walked off stage at the roundhouse in London and I said to myself, ‘that’s the best show I’ve ever played,’” he says. “I think I’m still chasing that one in my mind.”
Since Radin is originally from Ohio, he’s excited to arrive in Maine and do what everyone else from away does first. “I’ll probably be a cliché and eat a huge lobster!”
