D. S. Bradford
A versatile singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and visual artist, Boston-born, Pennsylvania-based D.S. Bradford draws from an eclectic roster of influences including sci-fi-minded neo-prog stalwarts Coheed and Cambria, emo-punk rockers Bayside, and alt-rock heroes Foo Fighters. Raised in a musical household, Bradford discovered the visual arts first, but soon added guitar to his unofficial curriculum, and with that came the desire to compose music for film and television. He began writing songs with his band in 2007, and honed his songwriting and production chops with help from multiple award-winning artist development coach, producer, and composer Jeff Blue, whose influence helped shape the budding artist's unique pop/punk/prog sound. In 2014, after a two-year hiatus that saw Bradford take a much needed break from the business to recalibrate his personal life, he issued his first official single, "Oceans," with plans to release his debut studio long-player, an ambitious concept album called Elemental Evolution, in the near future.

About the Album: Philadelphia rocker/singer-songwriter D. S. BRADFORD is excited to make his debut with Elemental Evolution (out 8/5 on Equinox By Fireside Music/Sugo Music Group), kicking off a series of performances with a record release show at Dockside Bar at Dave & Buster’s in Philadelphia, PA on Friday, August 5th at 8PM, presented by Gravity Given Productions.
The title track was premiered on PopMatters earlier this year and was given praise by several media outlets upon its release, creating a great deal of anticipation in advance of the upcoming release. Bradford gave an interview with Gerard Longo of Lehigh Valley Underground that shed light upon the stories that sparked him to write the songs. In short, Elemental Evolution is a collective look at being human, coming together in harmony, and weaving our experience in this life with the threads of love and tolerance for one another, a timely notion in these difficult times with which we are faced of late.
Bradford sums it up, “Humans. Our world and everything in it, through direct and indirect actions, evolves to survive and adapt. We are peaceful, but we are also destructive. This album is about evolving into a form of ourselves that is conscious of peace and embraces love.”
