Here is how Bradley describes himself--
I am a poet -- My songs often begin as poems. I like to tell stories about my own life and my search for meaning, for love, for connection. I also have a playful, irreverent side that comes out at times. My songs capture both the serious and playful side.
I am self-taught -- I never learned to use a pick, and developed my own finger-picking style over a number of years. I loved listening to Leo Kotke and banjo players and tried to bring some elements of those sounds into my own.
I respect all paths -- I am open to and interested in other cultures and their spiritual traditions. I learned to meditate at age 20 and have explored many religious traditions - Christianity, Sufism, Shamanism, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism. There is wisdom and beauty to be found in all paths. They will all lead us home.
