About the Event

Joshua Radin is an empathetic, engaging, and often enthralling troubadour. Uncompromising and relentless, Ron Pope has evolved into one of the top grossing independent acts in the business. On November 19, they appear together live in Scottsdale Arts’ Virginia G. Piper Theater at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. 

Joshua Radin

Over the years, Joshua Radin tallied north of 1 billion streams, moved 1 million-plus albums worldwide, and scored a gold certification for the single “I’d Rather Be With You.” His music has appeared in more than 200 films, television series, and commercials. In addition to multiple showstopping appearances on Ellen (the eponymous host also enlisted him to perform at her wedding) and the Today show and performances on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Conan, he contributed “Brand New Day” to a commercial in support of the troops at the request of First Ladies Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. He’s played to sold-out crowds around the globe and shared the stage with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Sheryl Crow, Tori Amos, and more. He’s also a staunch philanthropist who supports Little Kids Rock and North Shore Animal League America (NSALA), among others. Thus far, his catalog consists of nine full-length offerings, highlighted by fan favorites such as We Were Here, Simple Times, Underwater, Wax Wings, and Here, Right Now. 

Following the release of his 2021 acclaimed album The Ghost and The Wall, Radin left his material existence in the rearview, grabbed a backpack, packed his guitar, picked up a pen and a pad, and hit the road in search of new stories to tell. Those stories compose though the world will tell me so, a 2023 two-volume release. 

Ron Pope 

Fiercely independent, Nashville-based recording artist Ron Pope carved his niche in the digital era’s early days with his breakout hit, “A Drop in the Ocean,” which has amassed more than 1 billion streams, earning platinum status in the United States, alongside double-platinum status in Sweden. His prolific songwriting is a natural fit for Music City’s Americana, roots, and country communities, garnering praise from media such as Rolling Stone, Billboard, CMT, Relix, and The Tennessean. With each release, including his most recent album, Inside Voices, released in June 2023, Pope continues to captivate audiences with his raw authenticity, profound storytelling, soul-stirring melodies, and introspective lyricism. 

Beyond his own musical endeavors, Pope writes and produces for other artists and serves as a guiding light for aspiring musicians navigating the ever-changing landscape of today’s music industry. Pope recently completed his 20-date A Drop in the Ocean Tour, commemorating the 15th anniversary of his debut LP, Daylight.
