Serenade Your Soul
A laid-back dinner party with your closest friends. Scented candles, soft lights and a hot bath. A long hike meditating and soaking in nature. A quiet house with a good book. How do you unwind and rejuvenate your soul? We all have our go-to methods for renewal… and now we all have the perfect musical accompaniment.

Joshua's new album, At Home With Friends, will be in stores September 29 and it’s AMAZING! Joshua is well known for holding ‘musical soirées’ at his Manhattan residence – parties with musicians, actors, comics and authors who get together just for the sheer joy of sharing their art. So with this new album, Joshua fulfilled a life-long career dream of recording a CD of instrumental and vocal duets with an amazing roster of musicians and friends.

We’re talking Regina Spektor, Josh Groban, Sting, Kristin Chenoweth, Chris Botti, and more

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
