Hi, I'm Bradley Fish. SONY released 3 CDs of my music & loops worldwide, my Youtube channel has over 1.5 MILLION hits and I've worked with tons of international acts...My 1 and 2-man shows feature awesome energy and a HUGE sound (think 8 piece band!) w/exotic musical instruments, acoustic singer/songwriter sets, bluesy vocals, groove-oriented rock w/ cutting edge live looping.
I also do elegant, mood setting background music -- Renaissance Dulcimer, Jazz Guitar, New Age and Ethnic Instrumentals, all styles of popular cover songs, Rock, Blues, Country, Reggae, Xmas music, Jewish Music -- whatever your event calls for.
You'll hear me recorded on tracks with 'Yvad' – Bob Marley's successor in the Wailers, and Jerry Johnson – the sax player behind Steel Pulse, Queen
Latifah, and Burning Spear's 2009 Grammy winning 'Jah Is Real' CD.
In my 20's, I recorded and performed often with Bjork/Sugarcubes drummer Siggi Baldursson, and opened shows for Woodstock-era legends including Richie Havens, Big Brother & the Holding Co. (Janis Joplin's Band), Hot Tuna (formerly Jefferson Airplane) and Merl Saunders (Jerry Garcia Band/ Grateful Dead) - who brought me up onstage to jam with him.
Fox News put me on twice, including backing up Pat Boone, who sold 45 million records in the 50's. Dan Reed, who sold 3 million records in the 90's, hired me to record Chinese Zither and co- write with him. I also got to play dulcimer for the Dalai Lama of Tibet at the Grant Park, Chicago Parliament of the World's Religions to a crowd of tens of thousands...
Amy Guthier, Director at Chazen Art Museum said "That was wonderful. We want you back!! Even your instruments themselves are like an art exhibit!!"
Madison resident Dr. Jon Tueting hired me to play a private party at his Green Lake, WI lakefront home "Awesome! Amazing Sound! Everyone loved it."
I have excellent transportation and gear. I'm reliable, fun and easy to work with. I can give a fresh, unique take on music that you already love.
With a degree in Jazz guitar/World Music, over 1,200 private students over 27 years, production credits for many artists and commercials, and tons of educational workshops from grade schools to colleges under my belt:
I can enhance your gig by creating a fun, spontaneous jingle for your business, recording a song to CD with you singing or playing, giving an extra educational workshop or private guitar/music lesson before or after the gig, and more! Please let me know how I can make your event experience even more AWESOME.
