A VERSATILE SINGER/SONGWRITER, MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST, AND VISUAL ARTIST, BOSTON-BORN, PENNSYLVANIA-BASED D.S. BRADFORD DRAWS FROM AN ECLECTIC ROSTER OF INFLUENCES INCLUDING SCI-FI-MINDED NEO-PROG STALWARTS COHEED AND CAMBRIA, EMO-PUNK ROCKERS BAYSIDE, AND ALT-ROCK HEROES FOO FIGHTERS.

RAISED IN A MUSICAL HOUSEHOLD, BRADFORD DISCOVERED THE VISUAL ARTS FIRST, BUT SOON ADDED GUITAR TO HIS UNOFFICIAL CURRICULUM, AND WITH THAT CAME THE DESIRE TO COMPOSE MUSIC FOR FILM AND TELEVISION. HE BEGAN WRITING SONGS WITH HIS BAND IN 2007, AND HONED HIS SONGWRITING AND PRODUCTION CHOPS WITH HELP FROM MULTIPLE AWARD-WINNING ARTIST DEVELOPMENT COACH, PRODUCER, AND COMPOSER JEFF BLUE, WHOSE INFLUENCE HELPED SHAPE THE BUDDING ARTIST'S UNIQUE POP/PUNK/PROG SOUND.

IN 2014, AFTER A TWO-YEAR HIATUS THAT SAW BRADFORD TAKE A MUCH NEEDED BREAK FROM THE BUSINESS TO RECALIBRATE HIS PERSONAL LIFE, HE ISSUED HIS FIRST OFFICIAL SINGLE, "OCEANS,"  WHICH LED TO AN AMBITIOUS CONCEPT ALBUM CALLED ELEMENTAL EVOLUTION, RELEASED IN 2016.
