ďHis newest album, Right Now, is an 11-track tour-de-force of body-moving pop music. Walsh produces catchy, upbeat dance music reminiscent of some of popís greats, but he compounds his beats with honest points-of-view, bold political affirmations, and matter-of-fact statements of social life in New York City.Ē -Vogue Italia

ďBrad Walsh has it all: a flourishing music and photography career (heís sold over 9 million digital downloads of his tracks!) [Interview]ď -US Magazine

ďBrad Walsh sets aside his passion for collaborations and takes the wheel on his new full-length album, resulting in a dark yet club-friendly disc that delves into uncharacteristically personal territory.Ē -The Advocate

ďOne of the biggest-sounding club records of the year: Right Now. Like its title, and everything Brad does, this LP is all about the here and now, an urgent, zeitgeisty adrenaline rush of hi-NRG dance monsters packed full of hits.Ē -NAAG

ďBy applying pop sensibilities and candid storytelling to reinvent club music, Walsh would seem poised to break out in a big way as a solo artist.Ē -Examiner

ďGood things come to those who demand itÖ Brad takes us to darker, more intimate places, drawing on autobiographical materialÖ the album is pure club.Ē -OUT Magazine

ďMore creatively experimental and topically explorativeÖ This album is a conceptual art formÖ an album of intelligence that inspires new thoughts upon every listen.Ē -Electroqueer

ďBrad Walsh isÖ on the cusp of conquering the pop world with his infectious songs.Ē -The Culture of Me

ďTrue poetic justice on the dance floor. I donít think Iíve ever felt this sort of emotion from a dance record, ever. Brad Walsh has taken on many of the issues out there in the world and given them a voiceÖ and a beat. This is his best release to date.Ē -Twisted Peppermint

Other recent press includes JustJared.com, Paper Magazine, A Heart is A Spade,Send the Trend, Towleroad, and Frozen Field Media.

Lyrics: ďRight Now (Intro)Ē
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

Right now
I just wanna give it up and go away
Right now
I donít feel like I am loved like I was yesterday
To say Iím underwhelmed is understating that
Today I hate the way I feel, oh
Right now

My mind is on a plan of action to find
Retribution from you, rewind
Everything Iíve done for you
What does it mean to you?
We tore apart this old cachet
The broken seal that sealed your fate
At the end of the day
It grates the way you say ďnoĒ

Right now
I just wanna give it up and go away
Right now
I donít feel like I am loved like I was yesterday
To say Iím underwhelmed is understating that
Today I hate the way I feel, oh
Right now

Lyrics: ďWhen the Glitter Washes AwayĒ
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

Take every little thing that you can take (take)
Everybody is a claim that you can stake (stake stake)
What a sorry (sorry) sad state (state)
Only thing thatís real is that youíre fake (fake fake fake)

Whatís left of your face
When the glitter washes away?

I, I, I spent a lifetime dealing with the
Like, like, likes of you
And I, I, Iíve wasted energy thinking every
Thing that youíve said is true

Itís not about the way that you take it
Itís all about the way that you fake it

I donít need you to be there
I donít need you to compare
I canít keep giving this hard

Itís not about the way that you take it
Itís all about the way that you fake it
Itís not about the way that you take it

Take every little thing that you can take
Everybody is a claim that you can stake
What a sorry (sorry) sad state (state state)
Only thing thatís real is that youíre fake (fake fake fake)

I, I, I spent a lifetime dealing with the
Like, like, likes of you
And I, I, Iíve wasted energy thinking every
Thing that youíve said is true

Whatís left of your face
When the glitter washes away?

Lyrics: ďSecret EaterĒ
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

Iím your secret eater
Catch me underneath the table every Friday night
Said Iím your secret eater, eat your secrets
You can tell me itíll be all right, baby
ĎCause Iím a fatty but thereís always room for one more bit of
Information, tell me all your trepidations
Your secret eater, swallow secrets, keep my mouth locked tight

How, how, how, how

Tell me what youíre thinking
I will keep it to myself
Youíll never ever ever have to worry íbout a thing
You can kill me if I ever tell

How, how, how, how

Lyrics: ďFatherĒ
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

I never cared to know about you
I never knew enough to think about it
You said there was no way I came from you
That was until you needed something from

You need some from me
You need some of my blood

Now I got the blood that you need but
Youíre not gonna get it, you denied me
Gave it all up when you kept me away
Even if you made a little effort to hate me outright
Say it to my face
Then today I would give it away
Then today I would give it away
Then today I would give it away
Iím fantastic without you anyway

(Countdown from 48)
Time is up

Lyrics: ďAddicted to the BeatĒ
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

When I was 17 years old
I heard a beat that made me lose all control
It turned me out, it turned me upside down
It turned my whole entire life around
And ever since the day I let the music in
I been addicted to this feeling living deep within
Do anything for just another heavy hit
I got a problem maybe you can help me deal with it

Iím addicted to the beat
Canít somebody help me

I feel the need again
Gimme another hit, baby
Lay it down on the line
Play that track one more time
Desire is fire, itís spreading wild and higher
If you replay it Iíll take it and make it
Well worth your while
Iím addicted to this beat
Iím addicted to this beat
Lay it down on the line
Play that track one more time
Iím addicted to this beat
Iím addicted to this beat, oh

Iím addicted to the beat
Canít somebody help me

Lyrics: ďD.F.W.M.Ē
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

I see you having a laugh
Yeah I was noticing that
I see you making a crack
I got a question to ask

How much time have you spent
Being an asshole to everybody else

Maybe if you spent a little energy
Checking yourself instead of feeding all the misery
You wouldnít feel so bad about yourself and need
The validation of your friends and feel the need to put your hate on me
I know Iím not the kind of person that you see
Everyday on the train in the street or on your TV
But come on, man, do you really gotta do this,
Get out of your truck and and make a fist and put your hands on me?

Really? ÖK

Well Iím gonna tell you what weíre gonna do about this
Iím gonna take your life apart piece by piece
Your job, your wife, your days, your nights
Your freedom to think like a snake in peace
I donít need the whole world to agree with me
Or even like me or vote for what I need
But if you value the life that youíre leading:
Then donít fuck with me!

How much time have you spent
Being an asshole to everybody else

Lyrics: ďCheetahĒ
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

I got a feeling inside, I wanna do something crazy
I gotta do something wrong
When I awaken tomorrow everything will be hazy
Singing a sad sad song, I know
I done you wrong in the past but none of that was this ugly
Donít even wanna say what
I walk around in a daze, I know Iím deep into trouble
Can anybody hear me

Where were you last night

Cheetah
Caught you out fucking with the body of another
Cheetah
Now Iím red-handed with your lover
Cheetah
Caught you out fucking with the body of another
Cheetah
Now Iím red-handed with the blood of your lover

Lyrics: ďSlow A Body DownĒ
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

Mamaís in some trouble, I feel it in my chest
Mamaís working double, I feel it on my breast
Every now and then I need to take a rest
Every now and then I need to take a rest

Papaís bursting bubbles, I feel it in my chest
Papaís kicking rubble, I feel it on my breast
Every now and then we need to take a rest
Every now and then we need to take a rest and

Slow a body down
Slow a body down
Slow a body down
Slow a body down

Brotherís in depression, I feel it in my chest
Brotherís thick aggression, I feel it on my breast
Every now and then he needs to take a rest
Every now and then he needs to take a rest and

Slow a body down
Slow a body down
Slow a body down
Slow a body down
Down, down, down, down

Happy everybody is feeding on the mess
Happy everybody makes money off the rest
How to make me happy is anybodyís guess
How to make me happy is anybodyís guess

Mamaís in some trouble, I feel it in my chest
Mamaís working double, I feel it on my breast
Every now and then I need to take a rest
Every now and then I need to take a rest and

Slow a body down
Slow a body down
Slow a body down
Slow a body down
Down, down, down, down

Lyrics: ďDrive Into YouĒ
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

If you wanna come around and see me, baby
You know I wonít object, have I done so lately? No
But youíre driving me around, driving me around in the backseat
Staring bored out the window, though you know
I need control, gotta work the stick and roll into town, yeah

Whoa, move over
I wanna drive, I wanna drive into you
Whoa, pull over
I wanna drive, I wanna drive into you

Everybody wants to take out their rage on someone
But I donít got a qualm, I just want to get it done and then run
But the game is not allowed, Iím not looking for a crowd in the backseat
So throw your phone out the window ícause you know
I need control, punch your ticket, pay the toll and get down, yeah

Whoa, move over
I wanna drive, I wanna drive into you
Whoa, pull over
I wanna drive, I wanna drive into you

Just tell me what you want now, baby please
Just tell me what you want now, baby please

Lyrics: ďHands OnĒ
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

Now put your hands on anyone you ever loved

What we need in this new century is a little r-e-s-p-e-c-t
A little less you and me and a little more we
And whenever you and I disagree
Doesnít mean that we have to h-a-t-e
Utilize m-u-c-h l-o-v-e

If we can offer what we have and forgive a little debt
We can save our people from a global train wreck
If you treat Ďem with love, give Ďem some respect
We can get along and live together yet
offer what we have and forgive a little debt
We can save our people from a global train wreck
If you treat em with a love, give Ďem some respect
We wonít come to an end

Now I think that Iíve got the remedy
A little less war, a little more Britney
Have trouble fighting and be okay with sexy
Thatís all we need
Why donít we make sure that no one is hungry
And music lessons for everybody
Letís spend less money and get us a hobby, yeah

If you wanna be a stand-up guy
All you gotta do is give it a try
Take a chance, be a beacon in the sky
And you can lure love in with the bright of your light
