    From the woods near Lake Michigan, the ever-acroamatic Brad Peterson writes and records in a hand-constructed garden shed studio. In a few Google-minutes, one may learn Brad’s curious history of shared stages with Jeff Buckley and Radiohead, his injury that left him partially paralyzed, and the rousing comeback from a forced retirement. Just a few months after the release of “The Ellipsis Album“, which has garnered millions of views and streams, spins on hundreds of radio stations, and favorable international reviews, comes a new record: “the unknown album” which will be released 8/24/2018 on 4 continents. “the unknown album”, featuring “a friend like you” and “offer it up“, introduces new emotive works with an abundance of reverie and keen songcraft. Listen if you like: Ray LaMontagne, The Shins, U2, or David Gray. Reviews & Accolades: “Cinematic.” – The Revue “a pop gem.” – The Chicago Tribune “well-crafted pop” –The Chicago Reader “interesting and thoughtful with a gracious perspective on life.” – Huffington Post “There isn’t a single moment when his DIY approach to album-making doesn’t pay dividends.” – Vents Magazine “Highly Recommended.” – Powerpopaholic “Memorable vocal melodies and universally relatable storytelling.” – New Noise Magazine “Beautiful…Peterson attempts to bring the cinematic nature of the song to life.” – Surviving the Golden Age “perhaps the purest definition of “indie record” imaginable…to create a compelling world all the singer-songwriter’s own.” – Pop Matters “a marvel” – Austin Town Hall “Peterson’s sound really grabs you with a lusciously produced mixture of banjo plucking and electronic whirring, all coming together to form a truly wonderful pop song.” – Magnet Magazine “Peterson sings it with unvarnished passion” – Skope Magazine “An esoteric and curious amalgam of indie-rock and mid century pop.” – Vents Magazine
