I started this journey back in Yorkton circa 1984. I watched the guitar player from my brother’s band play “Ain’t Talkin Bout Love” by Van Halen and it blew me away that someone could do that. I realized it could be done and I had to do it! Since learn to play guitar like Eddie Van Halen wasn’t yet available on YouTube I had to look elsewhere. Big brother Dave showed me all he could but driven to do more I began studying classical guitar, at the age of 14, under the tutelage of Mr. Ronald Ayre (ARCT). Four years later I completed a Grade 10 in the Royal Conservatory program.

From Yorkton to Los Angeles. At age 17 I pursued this passion all the way to Hollywood California where I attended the Musician’s Institute (G.I.T.).

Player Profile

I have toured with a number of diverse local bands ranging from contemporary and classic rock acts to tribute acts (Hollywood Vampires Tribute to Alice Cooper & Rory Allen’s Tribute to Elvis Presley) to contemporary country acts.

Lately the studio takes up much of my focus but I have been known to pop up in clubs, casinos, charity events and most recently CTVs Morning Live with some of the best talent Saskatchewan has to offer (Chris Henderson, Blake Berglund, Jess Moskaluke, Amanda Jane Duncan, Darlene Tuletta, Melissa Mannett).

Production/Engineering/Mixing

Started out providing freelance engineering work for various studios around Saskatchewan (Freedom Sound Studio, Touchwood Studio, and Sound Edge Studio) and then spent 4 years at Talking Dog Post and Sound Studio where my responsibilities included: Bg’s, SFX, Dialog Editing and Mixing for film, television, and commercials.

In the fall of 2002 I started my own studio venture, B-Rad Studio.

Some of the highlights over years include:

  • 2016 “Producer of the Year” Nomination for Western Canadian Music Awards/Break Out West
  • 2009 Winner of SCMA “Studio of the Year”
  • Co-creator of the Canadian Nashville Express Program with my friend Billy Block, offering Showcasing/Radio Interview/Gigging/Songwriting and much more to Canadian artists in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • Won the VH-1 International Song writing contest Pop Song Category for the month of February 2007 with the song “Falling” c0-written by Melissa Mannett and myself.
  • Producer/Engineer/Mixer for SCMA “Album of the Year” Faster Gun’s “Back Again”
  • Recorded/Mixed and Mastered Donny Parenteau’s “The Great Unknown” album that garnered a nomination for “Engineer of the Year” award at the Canadian Aboriginal Awards in 2005.
  • Engineer for John Corbett (Aiden’s Sex and City) for the track “Ain’t No Trouble to Me” ( a tune written by Jon Randall/Guy Clark) which was released on the Nashville compilation cd “For Kates Sake”. This was Produced by Garry W. Tallent (from Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band) and Billy Block.
  • Featured Artist for World Renown Software Plugin Company “Roger Nichols Digital”.
  • Recorded and Engineered tracks on Frank Black’s 93-03 Album. Frank is from the legendary band Pixies.
