Feeling a bit camera shy


Brad Kenstler, a self-taught bassist, guitarist, and pianist started song writing and performing in Las Vegas in 1985, and thru numerous all original bands, winning the Battle of the Bands, gigs and touring, press coverage and radio play, self produced CD sales, and a diverse following, his experience as a songwriter and band leader became well known.

After 11 years of college at UNLV, including coursework covering classical piano, classical guitar, jazz guitar, history, poetry, and finally music theory and composition, with an emphasis on advanced orchestration, his training resulted in following a career as a professional composer, arranger, and orchestrator, and it culminated in numerous compositions under his belt, as well as a premiere composer's concert for orchestra, Kenstler's Solitude, conducted by Hanlon, and performed by the UNLV orchestra, and recorded by the resident engineer, Kurt Miller, and various diverse cds of original unsigned music ranging from pop punk to hard-core punk to psychedelic to alternative to pre-emo gothic to indie rock to progressive to classical composition.

Kenstler's background, including early exposure to Cat Stevens, Marty Robbins, Eddie Arnold, and Neil Diamond, from classic rock to punk rock to new wave to classical composition, yielded an eclectic, original, intelligent, spiritual, articulate, melodic, harmonious, and almost tribal rhythmic texture, cultish, pure and lyrically sincere.

The body of music Kenstler created is a remarkable precious arrangement of haunting ballads and sweet lasting melody, an allegorical masterpiece; it truly is the Fine Art of Transcribing Demons, a universal philosophy chiselled into song, through one man's will to hold on.
