    I'm really happy with the track! Bradford understood what I wanted right away and really brought the concept to life. He was really prompt and responsive as well. Would totally work with him again!

    Bradford did a stellar job on my song and was able to turn it around incredibly quickly and to a very high level. Main vocals, double and some extras also!!

    Top work indeed.

    Bradford was very easy to work with, has that great gritty vocal, and the vocal he delivered is the same quality as his demo vocals you hear. I will use him again.

    I have had Bradford make several demos for me over the last few years. I have given him the lead sheet of a complete song. I have never made any suggestions on their production because I trust his judgement. He has never disappointed. Not only have the completed projects been excellent they all seem to stand the test of time and have become treasures I return to often. I am most impressed with how much of his considerable talent he puts into every project. Not only are they excellent demos, but with a little added production could be released as singles.

    After my father passed away I wanted to write a song to honor him. Bradford sat down with me for just a few hours and in that time he was able to help me put into music what I wanted to say. He polished my lyrics and helped me find the right tune to accompany it and also worked with my skill level to make sure it was suitable for me to perform. I am deeply grateful for his help.

    Bradford patiently worked with me (a very amateur first-time song writer) and brought my songs to life. I provided him with two versions of each song: one with my vocals/melodies and one without vocals/melodies that he could use to record his vocals. My songs are from the power-pop genre and he nailed them. In some cases he provided me with alternative approaches and every time he did that, those songs popped! I originally thought that we would do 2 or 3 songs, but we ended up co-writing nearly 20 songs! I highly recommend Bradford. He is professional, patient and has boundless talent!

Interview with Bradford Loomis

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  6. A: Mary Bragg, Brad Lindsay, Hannah Miller are awesome!

  10. A: I will keep you appraised of the progress of the project and will do everything I can to exceed your expectations!

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: What they are looking to have done, what do they want to convey through the project, what are their goals for the project, what is their timeline like and what is their budget?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Ask a lot of questions. Ask for example of their work. Does it sound like what you are going for?

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: Assuming in this scenario that there is electricity on the island, I would want my computer, Apollo interface, Shure Sm7b my midi controller and my guitar.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I knew I wanted to me a musician ever since I was a kid. There was a stretch where I gave up music outside the church when I met my wife and had kids. But I came back to music full time about 13 years ago and haven't looked back.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: My style of music lives where passionate soul and the homespun eloquence of Americana storytelling intersect, that I call Rhythm and Roots.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Never sit in one space too long. A good song will keep moving. Either adding or subtracting something through layering or introducing a new utilizing dynamic contrast, a song should keep moving.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: First and foremost I like to discuss the project with the client. It's so important to ask a lot of questions to get a firm understanding of what the goals for the project are, what expectations we have and what the timeline will look like. Knowing the scope and workload of the project informs everything else.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a great little studio here in Nashville for in the box recordings and for larger budget projects I work out of the Retrolab with Nick Bearden in East Nashville.
