I couldn't just define Joshua Radin's music. They say its american folk, a far cry from Filipino folk. Its new to me, I am not certain if there is american folk. I know country song, but its predominantly, and with instant association to cowboys. But Radin is not a cowboy, and certainly do not sound one. His' more subtle and smooth, almost sleepy but really sounds angelic. The modulated voice, simple melody and guitar accompaniment made me like this singer. This got to be my 'pampatulog' song. A sort of lullabye to have me asleep in my waking nights.
I provided a condense musical bio below from wikipedia.
