Bio

Talking about how music sounds could be like writing about how letters look. Some people find that Brad's music is original yet at the same time familiar - like an old friend who you're comfortable being with and around but you haven't seen in a while and you almost didn't recognize him when you saw him because he let his hair grow long and lost his beard trimmer.

Whether your objetive is a relaxing, entertaining
evening out or a chill drive along a desolate stretch of country road, Brad's music and performances have a lot to offer.

The 25-year old singer-songwriter from
northwest Ohio writes from the gut with a catalog of songs that will speak to your heart, pick your brain and hug your ears.

In February of 2006, Brad earned honorable mention honors in the Song of the Year International Songwriting Competition for the ballad "Last Hello, Goodbye", which also earned honors for song of the week for the week of Feb. 11-17, 2006, at ArtistWeekly.com. But what really fuels this music hobbyist are not accolades or truimphs, but simply the opportunity to share his art with the world.

"Last Hello, Goodbye" is also currently being featured on the Three Chord Channel of NMM Online Radio.

Before the release of his first album in the fall of 2003, Brad was given the opportunity to perform in front of 10,000 people at the American Motorcycle Association Nationals held in Lima, Ohio. Although Brad sang just one song - an accapella version of "God Bless America" - he gained validation that night that there was no turning back.

As time passed, however, Brad began to put his career in music aside to focus on important events in his life such as getting married, graduating from Ohio State and begining his graduate school studies. But the passion never left.

As days of restless practicing turned into months of evenings without crowds, Brad began to realize he needed to take a chance and return to the stage.

Drawing comparisons to Jason Mraz, John Mayer and Edwin McCain, Brad's evolving style of genre-blending songs invite audiences to become part of the show, instead of simply watching and listening.

Brad is currently writing new material for a Spring '08 release and working as a guitarist with the national touring Christian rock band New Method.
