On Saturday October 23, 2010 at 2 p.m. eastern time. I will have the pleasure of interview an artist who is from The United States but lives on the road. Bradley Fish is a freelance musician who spent the past 6 years based in Israel is taking his new live laptop looping-based music international, blending his mastery of many real instruments with DJ-like effects, while touring and rehearsing in a large purple van. Fish seems to care very little that by doing so he may actually confuse his old hippie and stoner-rock era fans used to his raw, earthy styling. Fish recently finished his 3rd CD of loops for SONY and co-wrote and played Chinese Zither on a track for multi-million record selling Dan Reed. Fish appears on new Bigga Haitian reggae tracks with ‘Yvad’ Bob Marley’s successor in the Wailers, and Jerry Johnson, the sax player behind Steel Pulse, Queen Latifah, and Burning Spear’s 2009 Grammy winning ‘Jah Is Real’ CD. The nearly 1 million internet hits on Fish’s immodest “Jewish Girl Blues” video angered religious leaders in Jerusalem, who smashed Fish’s rare collection of priceless electric guitars, but Fish still managed to play acoustic guitar on recordings with several secular Israeli platinum selling artists including Arkady Duchin and Rami Kleinstein. Bradley holds a B.A. degree in jazz guitar from Northern Illinois University, where he studied with master guitar virtuoso Fareed Haque, who completely kicked Bradley’s ass. During this ivory tower period, Fish gained exposure to a plethora of instructors and styles of music from around the world and across time, grew his hair incredibly long, and wrote several songs about weed. Through all the mayhem, somehow, Bradley Fish has managed to hang on to endorsement deals with the following great and lovely companies, whom he thanks profusely for all the cool, free sh*t: Martin Guitars, Pintech Drums, Echo Audio, Minarik Guitars, Presonus Audio, Ableton, and Bome’s.
