Daily Earwig: Brad – Diamond Blues


Brad with an uncut version of Diamond Blues from the upcoming record, ‘United We Stand‘.

I’ve got my tickets to Brad’s show in Seattle at The Showbox At The Market on April 27th, do you? The band will also do two other live dates in California in May. 20 years later, Brad continues to bring a brand of rock and groove that still sounds as good as it did in 1992. I highly recommend you listen to a few of the other stellar new tracks from United, that have been posted on Brad’s official site.

United We Stand comes out on April 24th.
