Patrick Bradley Releases New Single “Reinvention”

During a period of serious self-critique while anticipating a personal milestone, chart-topping jazz fusion keyboardist/composer Patrick Bradley was moved to write a piece of music that projected the more vibrant space of mind in which he wanted to be. He titled the song “Reinvention” which he is releasing worldwide on all digital platforms July 17th via his own Patricks Song Factory Records label.

Gently rhythmic with a bubbling bass line, a minimalist Zen-like melody, and rise and fall dynamics, “Reinvention” is a warm, soft-rockin’ spirit-lifter. The song features Patrick on piano, organ and synthesizer with additional keyboards and synthesizer bass played by his longtime producer du jour, jazz fusion legend Jeff Lorber, plus Gary Novak on drums and soaring guitar by Michael Thompson.

“I began writing ‘Reinvention’ in a mental space of deep introspection,” Patrick reflects. “I needed to feel I was loving better, doing better and being true to my purpose. My goal was to write a song with a hopeful vibe that can draw people into a more kind, compassionate state of mind. May it draw you to reflect on the positive side of life,” he concludes.

“DEAR FRIEND”
FROM THE ALBUM “INTANGIBLE”

Patrick Bradley accomplishes His inspirational mission with instrumental firestorms that send spirits soaring. Intangible’s lead single is “Dear Friend” – a punchy, funky horns-fortified homage to artists that influenced Patrick’s bold, eclectic approaches to playing and composing music.

Co-composed with Lorber (who also plays synth bass and second keys on the track), “Dear Friend” is a spirited tip of the hat to departed musical greats such as Keith Emerson, Chris Squire and Richard Wright on the Rock side, George Duke and Joe Sample on the Jazz side, and incomparable originals Allan Holdsworth and Jaco Pastorius who soared in genius realms all their own.

The song celebrates friendship on multiple levels – spousal, communal and spiritual – while basking in the sun of musicians that paved the way for Patrick’s singular expression. “Their influence is woven throughout my musical experience, abilities and style,” Patrick shares. “Although I didn’t know them personally, I consider each a ‘Dear Friend’ for his musical impact in the world and on me personally. It was not my intent to emulate their styles but share gratitude towards them through where I am at musically today.”

Patrick Bradley - Intangible
2017 |  iTunes | Amazon

Celebrating his tenth anniversary of independently recording and releasing his own divinely inspired albums – four powerful CDs in ten years time – multi-dimensional keyboard wizard Patrick Bradley proudly presents Intangible (on Bradley’s own Patrick’s Song Factory Records). Intangible consists of 10 all original Bradley compositions co-penned and produced by Jeff Lorber, a contemporary keyboard legend since `77 who has worked with scores of music’s finest players yet has minted a kindred relationship with Bradley across his last three projects. Each outing has proven more daring, thrilling and challenging.

Enjoy a groove-a-thon of trilingual takeoff via Southern California-native Bradley’s Hammond B3 organ, Moog synthesizer and electric piano stylings that coolly cross rock, jazz and R&B with fiery, funky mastery…and purpose.

The music of Intangible is anchored by the core rhythm section of Jeff Lorber, Herculean bassist Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets, Steely Dan, Tommy Bolin), ubiquitous guitarist Michael Thompson (Hans Zimmer, Bob James, Stewart Copeland) and rock bottom drummer Gary Novak (Chick Corea, Allan Holdsworth, Lee Ritenour), horns by David Mann, plus two special guests.

“Music, creativity and whatever talents we each have are all gifts from God,”. “Love, faith, hope – even music – are all intangible… Hence, the title of my latest album. We spend so much of our time seeking physical and temporal things. I encourage us all to look beyond the physical universe and turn our hearts towards God.”

Patrick Bradley

Patrick Bradley started his musical life at age 8 on a bargain basement organ, faithfully played in church for seven years, explored the Beatles and Elton John, then progressed into the headier thinking man’s rock of Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Yes (Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman being major influences). He finally took classical music in college but caught the jazz-rock fusion A-train, latching fast to genre pioneers Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Out of college, Patrick joined a 5-piece rock band called Joshua that released one album on Polydor Records entitled Surrender in 1986. Then at age 24, Patrick opted to focus on his wife and children. Today, in addition to his ever growing music career, Bradley is president of the Southern Pacific Region at Whole Foods Market.
