When the soft-singing Joshua Radin brought his folk music to the Birchmere this past Tuesday, he brought with him the up-and-coming voice of Alexa Wilkinson. Wilkinson is the type of songstress that sits well with those that enjoy the “Grey’s Anatomy” soundtrack, spinning songs of her own life that resonate as though she was writing of you.
Her second album, Lions, was just released this year and may serve to springboard her into the mainstream. This small-setting tour with Radin offers a great chance to see her up-close before she blows up. And that Radin character, a “Press Pass” favorite, isn’t so bad either.
