You're right - it's RARE that I would place such a strong adjective in front of a guest's name. Here'w why: it's important for you to remember Patrick Bradley. It's that simple. But...maybe simple is not the word here :)
See, Patrick "daylights" as a regional President of Whole Foods! Already, he's different, right? In more ways than one! Check it out: he started at age 8 on a bargain basement organ. And self-taught! He played in Church for several years, all the while becoming immersed in the Beatles, Elton John, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Oh - and Rick Wakeman from the group, Yes. That particular influence stayed with Patrick - when you hear the Moog synthesizer on his new CD - you'll smile.
Classical music training in college and Jazz appreciation on the side - gravitating to Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. From school, he joined a five piece Rock band called "Joshua" - that group released an album in 1986, "Surrender." At age 24, Patrick decided to focus on a career that was more stable. With a wife and children, organic food retail seemed sensible.
While working for Whole Foods in Chicago, we came to know Patrick via his debut, "Come Rain or Shine." He was promoted to the Southern California division of the company and was able to record his second project, "Under the Sun." This was a partnership with Jeff Lorber, who was suggested by Patrick's mutual friend, Dave Koz.
He's REALLY good at being an executive at his exceptionally successful day job, but when you hear Patrick Bradley PLAY - and that means piano, organ and Moog - WHOA. We're kinda hoping that the music thingie takes over ;) Especially since the personnel on this album is so HOT! You'll have to wait to hear who when Patrick joins us on 9/16!
Carmel, IN – Emotional intelligence refers to our ability to perceive, control and evaluate our emotions. Few activities require emotional intelligence more than the performance of music. In performance, we become completely attuned to others. The more we understand our environment and the strengths of ourselves and others, the more likely we are to deliver an inspiring performance.
As a classically trained pianist, music has always been a passion for Jennifer Seaver Stokes. Though she still teaches music, she’s since incorporated coaching techniques to expand her services and inspire even more people. Today, Jennifer is the founder of Tuned In Coaching, dedicated to “connecting you with your inner genius.”
“I see myself as an inspiring performance specialist,” says Jennifer. “Most people are leading their life from a seat in the orchestra, but you are the composer and the conductor. Once you know your strengths and invest in your natural talents, you can access your inner resources for success.”
Jennifer works with her clients by focusing on “the music of their lives.” Where are they finding harmony? Dissonance? Rhythm? Melody? Where are they being their most creative? Finally, what energy are they projecting to those around them? If you can identify your strengths and master your energy, that emotional intelligence will allow you to connect with your inner genius and manifest greatness in your life.
“As a musician, I’ve had a private coach every week of my life,” says Jennifer. “My coaching comes from my experience in the music field and I’m using those skills and experiences to help even more people. I focus on their natural talents to help them understand what they bring to the table so they can get a new job or find a new relationship. It’s very fulfilling.”
