About D. S. Bradford
D. S. Bradford is a singer-songwriter, performer, recording artist, vocalist, and guitarist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In addition to being a musical performer, Bradford is a visual artist whose works are mostly considered to be surrealism. An example of which is his cover art for "Oceans" - his debut single - which released in the summer of 2014.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, his life started with a natural love of music and art that took ahold of him at an early age. Spurred by his parents, who were classical singers, as well as theatrical performers, Bradford developed first within the realm of visual art and illustration, then to vocal performance and guitar. Learning these skills lead to songwriting, with the ultimate goal of composing music for film and television and beginning a catalog of releases.
After nearly a half decade of writing poetry, David started to shift into songwriting in 2007 while with his previous band. In 2010, David had the great fortune of consulting with award-winning artist development coach, multi- platinum music producer, songwriter, and A&R representative Jeff Blue (Linkin Park, etc.), whose critique and guidance shed light on better songwriting techniques, arrangement, and studio engineering. Bradford then signed with BMI as a songwriter and started his career.
Bradford continued his round of live performances in notable venues throughout the Atlantic northeast, both with his previous band and as a solo artist. Cities and states included are: Philadelphia and suburbs, New Jersey, New York City, some performances being sponsored by Philadelphia rock stations: Radio 104.5 and 93.3 WMMR.
