|An “all-around Renaissance man” (Vogue Italia), singer/songwriter, producer, and visual artist Brad Walsh is “a chameleon extraordinaire” (ArjanWrites.com) and an influential “modern-day St. Patrick” (Village Voice) whose music is "required listening" (Idolator.com).|
Brad's newest release, Antiglot (October 6, 2017), is an album composed only using vocals layers and body sounds. It was produced by taking input sounds and producing them as though they were instruments, with lead vocals set atop. There are no actual instruments used in the composition, and no lyrics. It is an equally energetic and cathartic collection of songs -- sometimes meditative, sometimes invigorating -- inspired by the current American political climate.
You've never heard anything quite like Brad Walsh's new album Antiglot before. Composed entirely of "body sounds" — layered lyric-less vocals and the noise he could make without instruments — the ambitious work is a resonant soundscape, in turns arresting and meditative... Antiglot just might be the cathartic listening experience we all need.
Phenomenal... a complete departure from what [Brad's] done in the past.
Antiglot is modern, melodic, haunting, and sophisticated — with the organic human sounds giving it a strange timeless vulnerability.
From the opening track forward, Brad Walsh's new album Antiglot pulls the mind and spirit to a state of active meditation. For all its mystical elements—and the moments of rhythmic hypnotism—this is not background music... lush and uncommon soundscapes manifest.
Brad Walsh’s new album Antiglot is unlike anything you’ve ever heard before! It’ll both energize and mellow you out, which might sound confusing, but trust us.
Brad Walsh has many voices... he’s known for his outspoken political views/activism on social media... Antiglot has a different sort of voice, though — the set is composed entirely of vocal layers and body sounds. No instruments, no lyrics. ["Boadicea"] beautifully shows off this unusual approach.
In November 2015 Brad released Primary -- a six-song EP -- including guest appearances from Juliana Hatfield, Luscious Jackson, and Emm Gryner. Paper Magazine called it "indie-electro gold... a smorgasbord of brooding indie dance music, with beatific synths and pummeling bass." PopCrush.com called it "vibrant, pulsating" and "a collection of thumping, shape-shifting, left-of-center electronic productions that seeks to shake up the staleness of pop." On November 6, the Primary EP peaked at #1 on the iTunes New Releases Pop chart. Brad's five-track Secondary EP was released in March 2016 with guest appearances from Maria McKee, Emmy-nominated rap artist T.O.N.E-z, and indie darlings Bossy Love. His next full-length album, Six Infinite, was released October 28, 2016.
A deeply personal guerrilla pop album... [Six Infinite] tells a series of dark-edged stories about love and friendship over layered, haunting electronica beats.
How often does one press play on a new album and feel as if they're hearing something that defies the genres they've known thus far? As a considered, uncommon and cohesive piece of electronic music, Six Infinite makes us excited for all the [music] Walsh will continue to imagine, produce and share.
The album's smooth tones and infectious beats serve as the base for emotional lyrics spurred by a sudden separation... However, Walsh is not just making music; he's using his platform to take a stand for what he believes in.
Brad's remixes of songs by Adam Lambert (a #1 Billboard Hot Dance single), Sarah McLachlan, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Kanye West, Rihanna, and others have achieved over 15 million digital downloads to date. His music has appeared in shows and commercials on television networks including Bravo, E!, Showtime, MTV, Logo, and CBS; and he composes original runway music as well as DJ sets for fashion shows at New York Fashion Week.
Also an accomplished photographer, Brad’s portrait and fashion images have appeared most notably in The New York Times, Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, Elle, InStyle, Marie Claire, Nylon, Blackbook, Teen Vogue, and Spin; in promotion or advertisement for Christian Siriano, Victoria’s Secret, TreSemme, Gibson Guitars, Payless, Kleinfeld Bridal, Lane Bryant, and J Shoes; and on the covers of books from major trade publishers. He photographed every image in Christian Siriano's 2017 book "Dresses to Dream About" (Rizzoli). Several of his portraits were purchased by GenArt to travel the country as a gallery tour called “Capture the Night,” and he was a featured artist with portrait sessions on Gilt.com. Brad has served as a judge for fashion events around the country, and he designed a jewelry capsule collection available at retailers in the USA, UK, and Japan.
