Brad has been actively working on the craft of songwriting from the age of 14. A well thought out lyricist and chronic observer of life, Brads music tries to convey simple messages about the world and it’s relationships to the people in it. He effectively dabbles in many different styles and tries to continually peel back the layers of life he watches every day.
As a songwriter conveying his acoustic music live Brad has the rare ability to connect with his audience on many different emotional levels. Be it a solemn whisper or an unbridled scream, an introspective ballad or an all out rocker, Brad’s goal live is to have his audience ‘experience’ his performance, not just ‘listen’. To Brad, playing his music live is an ‘emotional togetherness thing’.
Brad’s single ‘Come On Christmas’ is a guitar driven retro rock Christmas tune about a perfect sleigh ride on a perfect Christmas night. We’ll never know if he actually got the girl. He won’t tell.
A trained and experienced Voice Over actor and music producer, Brad has performed on and created on air advertising for a multitude of business clients. From his 24 track digital recording studio he writes copy and records custom client specific works to spec in a timely fashion. His multi platform skills in entertainment, product marketing and music performance give him the ability to create, perform and produce single handedly thus making the process more efficient and cost effective. Brad makes sure every project is done creatively and professionally while working directly with the client to create a final piece that is both effective and ear catching.
Many businesses believe “If we build it, they will come.”
Unfortunately this is not true.It’s essential to make people aware your business exists and what it offers to your potential sales demographic. Believe it or not the marketing of a business is a very creative process and, although you may be an expert in your field you may stumble as to how to creatively get the marketing ball rolling into the vast choices of media offered today. You KNOW what you want to say to the world you just don’t know how to say it. Brad’s many years of creative marketing, concepts and strategies may be helpful by offering creative insights about how to potentially grow the awareness of your business.
A business makes a commitment for the creation of a promotional platform. One integral step of the success of any promotional program is the choice of media to carry the message. It can be a scary world full of demographics, choices, budgets and sales reps. This can be intimidating and time consuming for someone unfamiliar with this process. Brad has developed very good relationships with many TV, radio and print suppliers in the Vancouver area over the years and has a very good understanding of creating the right strategy to suit any given promotional campaign. He would be more than happy to help you assemble and source media to make your next marketing effort a successful one.
Brad takes the time to understand, amplify and streamline the on air creative for a number of car dealerships I own across Western Canada. His input is a unique asset and all I have to do is make ONE CALL. He gets it … and that makes things far easier for me to do what I do … which is run my businesses.
