Brad Peterson | Singer Songwriter

My name is Brad Peterson and I spend a lot of time in my garden shed where I make stuff, and think about things. If you want to know more about my music, just imagine this: It’s a late hazy and faded pale morning. The air is perfumed with coffee, lemon zest, and pipe tobacco as long beams of sunlight through warped glass windows, dances hypnotizes you into daydreams. A sense of calm pours over you while the buzz of a thousand distant conversations hush. Just then, a needle drops on spinning dusty vinyl and comes a welcomed warm voice that reveals long-kept secrets. Memories like smiles from your childhood -that’s kind of what I’m going for lately; of course there are my simpler songs too.

There are a bunch of other miscellaneous links to videos and such. There are some records you may access through this platform too; I’m working on a new one right now.
