Thirty-six-year-old Joshua Radin, in case you're bewildered by modern music's deluge of Joshes, is the singer-songwriter from Ohio who had a medium-sized hit last year with "I'd Rather Be With You".

The Rock And The Tide, his third album's worth of airbrushed faux-scruffy rock-pop, is the breathy, husky, stubbly work of a handsome man with his shirt collar unbuttoned, and therefore tailor-made to be TV-advertised during the breaks in Loose Women.
