Another returning artist to the podcast, this time with Southern California songwriter Brad Colerick. We last talked to Brad in episodes #69 and #67. He’d just finished his “Lines In the Dirt” record and was about release “When I’m Gone”. Brad’s now touring with “Tucscon”, his fourth solo release.
For this album, Brad traveled (twice) to Arkansas to work with producer Charlie White, recording most of the record in two, four-day sessions. (One track, “This Is What I Do,” was recorded back home in California.) Brad dropped by the house recently to discuss the record and the unique recording process to this project – recording it in pretty much two focussed sessions, versus piecing a record together over several months.
The day I talked to Brad was a few days after a recent show we hosted at the Corralitos Cultural Center Music Series. We were treated to a co-bill from Bev Barnett and Greg Newlon (who host the Woodshed concert series) and Michael McNevin (who hosts shows at his Mudpuddle shop in Niles CA). Brad is another songwriter who provides other artists with a place to play. Since 2009, he has been running the weekly (yes, every week) Wine and Song series in South Pasadena.
Coincidentally, Michael McNevin has played Brad’s series. And Brad recorded McNevin’s “Hob Thrasher” on the new Tuscon CD. It’s a very small world. Pretty cool, huh?
