Press:"Brad is a strong player in the Richard Thompson tradition, with a beautifully hypnotic approach." Vernon Reid (Living Colour) PhotobucketPhotobucketBrad Hammonds is an acoustic guitarist/ singer/songwriter from New York City. His new album, Through It All, is the sound of an artist discovering another enormous facet of his talent. The guitarist has earned a reputation as a great and inventive player, and now he has created a body of work that will add another distinction to his portfolio – that of “songwriter.”On Through It All, Hammonds has simplified his music in the best sense of the word, letting the distinctive power of his songs and voice shine through, and what has emerged is the utter soulfulness of his artistry. Through It All with a style that em-braces ‘90s US grunge rock and thumping twelve- string Spanish guitar folk, takes you from beer swilling anger in Seattle to sangria sipping in the Spanish sun before a quick hoedown in the deep south after a brief siesta in Mexico. Though this is the first solo offering from New York based singer/songwriter Brad Hammonds the vast array of musical influences and fine production could lead you to believe he has been around for years. The sometimes dark and often brooding lyrics combine brilliantly with an upbeat production, full to the brim of international flavor, which results in a superb bitter sweet theme that runs through the album’s twelve tracks.
