If you are a fan of multi-platinum concert and recording artists Yanni and pop vocal star Sheena Easton there is a good chance you also admire the music of leading composer and multi-instrumental artist Bradley Joseph.
Review by John P. Olsen – Newagemusicworld.com – Publication date: February 20th, 2013
Bradley Joseph has enjoyed a successful solo music career of his own for years, with many impressive achievements including ranking in Sirius Top 40 Radio Charts, with over 1.5 million radio plays each month, plus attaining #1 on Amazon, #1 on iTunes, and 25 weeks on the Billboard Charts.
The career musician Bradley Joseph is the Robbins Island Music Label founder, and was voted Outstanding Minnesotan of the Year, yet these are just several highlights during his illustrious career.
These achievements as a solo artist are in all in addition to sharing the stage with music celebrities Yanni and Sheena Easton for over a decade, touring with pop vocal star Sheena Easton as her co-music director for 5 years.
Touring with Yanni for over 6 years, Bradley Joseph replaced John Tesh as the feature keyboard performer and soloist during Yanni’s Ethnicity 2003 World Tour, and keyboardist in the multi-platinum selling CD and DVD titled Yanni – Live At The Acropolis. This album alone sold over 7 million copies worldwide, plus the video sold over 1 million copies to be top seller of all time, second only to the Thriller Video by the late Michael Jackson.
Bradley Joseph has an exceptional new age, piano instrumental album titled “Paint The Sky”. It begins with an exciting song titled “Inside the Stars”, moving to a more reflective “Secret of the Sun”. Rather than a complex analysis of the 13 songs an accurate description is best expressed by the near even number of songs with upbeat melodies and lively rhythms, with the balance centered by a light, casual relaxed atmosphere.
All piano with instrumental pieces are brilliantly poised by the cinematic feel, with importance given to melodic rhythm and phrasing. Aside from describing the album in formal terms, “Paint The Sky” is simply a significant new album arrangement by one of today’s top instrumental artists guaranteed to be a real crowd pleaser.
One can’t talk about Bradley Joseph without mentioning Yanni and Sheena Easton, both of which are music celebrities recognized for their selection of the highest caliber artists for their popular studio albums and concert tours.
In this sense I may be stating the obvious by saying Bradley Joseph is clearly an outstanding instrumental artist. Pointing out the significance of his music career however does offer a better perspective of how special “Paint The Sky” really is.
Bradley Joseph also has audio CDs and DVDs specializing in relaxation and behavioral music for pets including canines and felines. The benefits of music therapy are in fact supported by the veterinary profession, so if you are interested in providing therapeutic music for your pet visit the store section at his website.
Along with the popular pet therapy music CD and DVD collection there is a section at his website dedicated to specialty albums including Holiday Music, Popular Cover Songs, four CD nature sounds collection, piano sheet music and more.
