Hello! My name is Bradford Loomis. I’m a husband, father to three beautiful children, a songwriter and performer.


My Story

I always knew that I wanted to write and perform music. It was pretty much all that I could think of in high school. Not knowing how to pursue such an aberrant career path and lacking the maturity and discipline to figure it out, I succumbed the need to get a real job. After trying on many careers, unsuccessfully I might add, I found a gig as a customer service and sales rep for a telecom company. I thought that I had finally found that “good” job and so we bought a house. Well, when the Great Recession hit I lost my employment and subsequently we lost the house.

Finding solace in music again I discovered I had a new motivation to pursue my dreams of being a musician. Desperation has a knack of melting away the procrastinating and fearful impurities to not do something, till you’re left with a steely resolve to action.

In 2012 with much deliberation, my wife Kimberly and I decided that we would pursue these musical aspirations for two years while she continued to work. Two years turned into three as my career expanded and we knew we were on the right path. Last year, as rents continued to soar, we moved away from Seattle to central Washington in an effort to keep our overhead as low as possible. We had built a career in music that was able to support the whole family for the first time. Kimberly was able to stay home, working on building her photography and my music career while we home schooled our kids. This summer we decided to go “all in” and move to Nashville. This decision, will make touring easier, but also allow me to diversify and pursue more writing and publishing.

My musical career has always revolved around community. From the musicians I’ve met and worked with to the audiences I’ve played for and my friends and family, I’ve been very fortunate to have a vibrant supportive community around me. In playing House Concerts all over the country and meeting incredible people in every place I’ve been, the power of music becomes stark. It’s the most fulfilling thing I’ve ever pursued. I feel honored that music is also rewarding in that I have been able to provide for my family and grow my “business” every year.

Behind the Curtain

Up until now most of the income I’ve made from music has come from touring and playing shows. But, you can only play so many shows in a year. By the end of November I will have played over 200 shows for 2017. I love performing but I believe there is a better strategy. Playing that much I lose the ability to write, to be creative, to seek new and unique opportunities, to help others and to invest in my community at home.

Even with my show calendar at its most robust, I’ve tried to diversify my approach to music. This year I’ve had the opportunity to place some songs in film, television shows and commercials and sporting events, narrate the Sony PlayStation game Dino Frontier, and be a published author contributing to a friends first book.  My goal is to spend more focused time on writing music and getting these songs in front of as many people as possible.
