Autodidact, Inventor, Songwriter, Singer, Producer, and Artist, Brad Peterson, exemplifies the ethos of the independent-intrepid musician. At age six, he was experimenting with recording his original songs -as soon as he figured out how to work a tape recorder. Through the decades he evolved through a series of stylistic shifts with his powerful and emotive voice ever-present. As the songs became refined, he played in expanding spheres of influence. Stages and audiences grew and Peterson eventually rubbed elbows with some of the greats: Thom Yorke, Brian Wilson, Bono, Sufjan Stevens, Edie Brickell, David Lowery, Elton John, Jeff Buckley, and others.
