My name is Brad. I've been a Worship Leader for various churches and groups for a long time. I can do acoustic worship settings, and if you need, I can also put together a band (either acoustic or electric) for bigger events. I can provide standard contemporary songs (Hillson, Tomlin, etc) or traditional hymns.
In addition to leading worship, I also perform my own originals and cover songs as well, on both guitar and ukulele. It's an eclectic set that groups of all ages enjoy.
I'd love to to help you out!
Price Range: $150 and up
Gig Length: 30 - 180 minutes
Additional Booking Notes
For a solo set, my needs are pretty minimal. If you're providing a PA system, I need a vocal microphone, an input for my guitar and ukulele, and a stage monitor. If you don't have a PA system that I can use, I can provide one for a small fee.
For longer shows, some bottled water is always appreciated. And when possible, it's nice to have somewhere I can set up promotional materials like stickers, business cards, and CDs, but that depends on the venue and the situation.
In short, as long as people can hear me and I can hear myself, everything should be fine. :)
A typical set list includes my original songs plus covers from the 80s ("Walking on Sunshine", "Just Like Heaven", "Never Tear Us Apart") and 90s ("Glycerine", "One Headlight", "Shimmer").
If you need a worship leader, I can provide standard contemporary songs ("Oceans", "This Is Amazing Grace", "10,000 Reasons", etc) or traditional hymns ("How Great Thou Art", "It Is Well With My Soul", "Great Is Thy Faithfulness").
Influences & Inspiration
My songwriting influences include Paul Simon, Ray Davies, Michael Penn, Rivers Cuomo, and James Mercer.
As a worship leader, I've learned a great deal from people like Paul Baloche and Chris Tomlin.
