orchestration of classical depth and breadth".[1] Active since 1983, he played various instruments in rock bands throughout the Midwest until 1989 when Greek composer Yanni hired him for his next tour after hearing a tape of Joseph’s compositions. He was a featured concert keyboardist with Yanni through six major tours, and appears in the 1994 multi-platinum album and video Yanni Live at the Acropolis.[2] He reunited with Yanni in 2003 for the 60-city Ethnicity tour. He also spent four years as musical director and lead keyboardist for Sheena Easton, including a 1995 performance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In 1994, his solo career began when he independently released Hear the Masses, featuring many of his Yanni bandmates. This debut was followed by Rapture, an instrumental album recorded with a 50-piece orchestra, in which Joseph wrote and conducted all of the scores. It was released on the Narada label and reached New Age Voice (NAV)’s "Airwaves Top 30". He has produced 19 CDs/ DVDs and numerous piano books under his own record label, Robbins Island Music. Two of these recordings, Christmas Around the World and One Deep Breath, also held positions on NAV’s Top 100 radio chart. His music is included in multiple various-artist compilation albums, most recently the 2008 release of The Weather Channel Presents: Smooth Jazz II.

Biography
Bradley Joseph was born in 1965 and raised in Willmar, Minnesota, graduating from Willmar Senior High School in 1983.[3] He learned how to play piano from a how-to piano book he found in the piano bench.[4] One morning his father taught him how to play a boogie-woogie blues tune and by nightfall he could play the entire piece.[5] He started playing classical piano at age eight,[5] taking lessons for a year and a half but was selftaught thereafter.[4] While in junior high, he took a concert field trip where he saw Buddy Rich perform. He recalls, "I sat in the first

Bradley Joseph (born 1965) is an American composer, arranger, and producer of contemporary instrumental music. His compositions include works for orchestra, quartet, and solo piano, while his musical style ranges from "quietly pensive mood music to a rich

row and when Buddy’s sax player stood up to take his first solo something just clicked — the world closed in around me. I felt the power of music and knew that it was something special, a gift to be shared."[5] Joseph played piano for the jazz band and choir in high school,[6] and trombone through high school and college.[7] When he picked up the horn, he got a whole new perspective on music, gaining insight into all the different timbres available, which was invaluable to him when he started working with orchestras.[8] The first band he was in was a wedding dance band which allowed him to gain experience in every different style of music from polkas to rock and roll to jazz classics.[4] After attending Moorhead State University as a music major, he led some of his own bands around the area that toured Midwest nightclubs, such as in the group Ian Faith.[9] He played sax and guitar in some of these earlier bands but left them to concentrate on just the piano/keyboards.[7] Later, he started performing with guitarist Dugan McNeill, whose U2-like group was signed to Polygram.[5] McNeill and Yanni had once played together in the technopop band Chameleon in the late 70s and early 80s.

notable symphony orchestras, touring throughout the U.S. and abroad as Yanni gained worldwide fame.[13] His first show was at the Starplex in Dallas with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra filming a video project. "It was a real trial by fire for me", said Joseph.[5] "First show + 10,000 people + TV cameras equals NERVOUS."[11] Some of these early tours included the Reflections of Passion, Revolution in Sound, Dare to Dream,[14] Yanni Live, The Symphony Concerts 1993 and 1994 concert tours, as well as a performance in Germany that was broadcast throughout Europe and seen by 30 to 40 million viewers.[3] Joseph appears on the 1993 multi-platinum album and video, Yanni Live at the Acropolis.[10] He recounts, "When I reflect back over the years, one of the high points that stand out include performing at the Acropolis with Yanni. Imagine all these different cultures coming together with the challenges of language, equipment, travel, and weather problems. I still picture the police running their dogs through the dressing rooms to sniff out any bomb possibilities right before the show. People still come up to me and comment how that show has affected their lives."[11] In the band, Joseph covered a lot of the keyboard parts that Yanni could not for lack of hands in the shows.[7] He assisted with the task of managing the 30 or more synthesizers onstage,[15] and helped layer with the orchestra to create a "full-bodied, live-effect sound".[16] He did have to adjust some parts that did not work well in a live situation and worked extensively on programming sounds for all keyboardists.[7] Joseph said that "[Yanni] gave us musicians a great deal of freedom to expand the music as well. If you listen to the original recordings he did and what we ended up with in our live recordings, you can really hear the musician’s input."[7] He readily credits Yanni’s role in his professional development, and for five years of irreplaceable experiences and memories.[17] Between tours, Joseph worked extensively in recording studios on music ranging from rock and pop to rhythm and blues and orchestration with numerous artists from RCA, Epic, Warner Brothers, and Polygram Records,[18] in addition to performing in an elaborate national keyboard show tour with various musicians.[19] In 2003, he returned for the 60-city Ethnicity tour.[20]

Yanni
In 1989, Joseph recorded his first demo tape and sent it off to Greek composer Yanni, who was looking for someone to replace keyboardist John Tesh, as Tesh was launching his own solo career.[10] When Yanni heard Joseph’s compositions and arrangements, he was hired over the phone to join his core band, without ever meeting.[7] “ When I re- ” flect back over the years, one of the high points that stand out include performing at the Acropolis with Yanni.[11] After moving to Los Angeles at age 23,[12] he composed, arranged, and performed alongside Yanni for more than six years, performing in-concert with a number of

Fierabracci (fretless bass); Jeanette Clinger (vocals); and Grammy-winning violinist Charlie Bisharat. Other guest artists include Larry Preston (guitar); and Terry Brau — featured on numerous Bradley Joseph recordings — playing trumpet, saxophone, and fluegelhorn. “ Joseph’s mu- ” sic is backed by 15 talented musicians, some playing three or more different instruments, that make up a symphony of sounds ranging from quietly pensive mood music to a rich orchestration of classical depth and breadth. —Ken Moore, Naples Daily News[1] Joseph’s style attracted the attention of Narada Productions,[25] a Virgin Records subsidiary, via the World Wide Web. A representative for Narada came across his website and downloaded some music. This sparked their interest and resulted in signing Joseph to a multi-record deal, according to Peter Spellman of the Berklee College of Music.[26] The outcome was Rapture, containing intimate piano pieces, quartets, and full orchestral works.[5] It reached NAV’s "Airwaves Top 30" at #15 in July 1997.[27] This album was recorded at a number of different studios including Captain and Tennille’s studio in Los Angeles,[7] and Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, Minnesota.[28] In addition to a core band including Charlie Adams on percussion, Charlie Bisharat on violin, and Steven Trochlil on clarinet, Joseph brought in a 50-piece orchestra, and conducted and wrote all the scores.[7] Ken Moore of the Naples Daily News cites, "Joseph’s music is backed by 15 talented musicians, some playing three or more different instruments,

Sheena Easton
Joseph also performed with Sheena Easton for four years as her co-musical director and lead keyboardist.[21] He went from Yanni to Easton and back to Yanni in a few years. "It was a great transition from Yanni because it made me musically aware again", he said in reference to Easton’s R&B style. "I went back to where I started but it felt like a new invention."[22] “ Working ” with Easton was "...a shock in musical styles but a welcome change."[7] Wheeler questioned how he got hooked up with Easton; Joseph answered that he was recommended by a former road manager. He was included in a try-out with four others, rehearsed with the band, they then cut it down to two, and rehearsed with Sheena for the final cut.[7] Joseph anticipated they would ask him to do a solo on at least one of the songs he was asked to play during the audition, so he wrote a solo for all three songs, which was ultimately the reason he was hired for the job.[23] In a 1995 interview, he said that after five years of touring with Yanni and working on his own debut album, he needed a break. Yanni was still building his career and maintained a hectic concert schedule. Working with Easton, on the other hand, was "the best of both worlds". "She just adopted a baby and is pretty settled in", said Joseph.[3] Tour venues with her included Japan, Indonesia, Puerto Rico, and the United States,[5] as well as routine appearances in Las Vegas and Atlantic City.[3] In March 1995, he appeared with her on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno when she performed her new single at the time, "My Cheri".[24]

Solo career
In 1994, between world tours, Joseph released his debut album, Hear the Masses, a self-produced, self-published release under the More Core Records label consisting of 10 original compositions. He invited most of the Yanni band to contribute.[7] They include Charlie Adams (drums, percussion); Ric

that make up a symphony of sounds ranging from quietly pensive mood music to a rich orchestration of classical depth and breadth."[1] Wind and Wire Magazine contributor, Michael Debbage, recalls, "It was the year 1997 and New Age music had already peaked commercially as the interest and exposure seemed to lag. The genres main labels – Narada, Windham Music, and Higher Octave – were beginning to explore worldly themes versus the warm, earthly, acoustic themes that prior artists had established. It appeared that the abundance of new artists was becoming a dying breed. An exception to the rule was Bradley Joseph, who released his first mainstream album Rapture to glorious reviews, and to this day it remains his tour de force."[29] One of Joseph’s compositions, "The Glen", was written solely for the album Stories, a Narada Artist Collection, and is now also featured on 20 Years of Narada Piano. His works are included in other Narada compilation projects as well. Although he said that working with Narada was a great experience music-wise, Joseph did not like the lack of control over the end product, and asked to be released from his contract.[7] He started Robbins Island Music in 1998, composing, producing, and distributing his own recordings. Solo Journey was released and consists of eleven soft piano compositions that are based on mood and not on melody.[23] It is characterized by Debbage as being a "scaled down introspective, ... and while simplistic was still breath-taking".[30] Later releases include Christmas Around the World reaching NAV’s top 100 radio playlist;[31] and One Deep Breath also holding a position on NAV’s top 100 radio chart for over six months.[32] Bill Binkelman writes, "One Deep Breath is an album with two distinct ’feels’ to it: the more serene new age/ ambient soundscapes that bookend the inner tracks and the more radio-friendly and mainstream music in-between. While I doubt fans of Liquid Mind or other mainly electronic new age music artists would wholly embrace the overt romanticism of piano-led tracks like ’Dancers Waltz’ or ’Dreamer’s Lullaby’, there is definite appeal on the album for fans of adult contemporary piano pieces as well as for lovers of the more minimal approach to new age music."[33] Reviewing for Allmusic, Jim Brenholts describes One Deep Breath as

Bradley Joseph
a set of smooth adult contemporary pieces in which Joseph adds "world music flair and inspirational touches". "The vocal expressions by Clystie Whang and Joseph have devotional qualities that weave through the atmospheres and soundscapes smoothly."[34] “ The spe” cial audiences and beautiful cities inspired me to compose after sound checks... What an inspiration it was for me to sit alone on stage in these grand arenas and compose music.[35] Joseph returned as a featured instrumentalist during Yanni’s 2003 Ethnicity world tour,[36] and wrote his sixth album on stage after sound checks.[35] The Journey Continues, a sequel to Solo Journey, features Joseph on solo piano. Debbage writes, "The magical world of movies has a knack for exploring sequels. There is the beauty and beast effect when taking this pathway. The creative beauty allows the viewers to see the continued growth of its characters. The beastly aspect of this exploration is the Hollywood exploitation of an almost guaranteed return on its investment with no regard for its creative progression that usually sees diminishing returns. Bradley Joseph has decided to walk this tightrope by following up with Solo Journey that was released back in 2000. I am glad to report that The Journey Continues is entrenched in beauty, holding up well to its predecessor."[29] Joseph was named one of the "Ten Outstanding Young Minnesotans" (TOYM) of 2004 by the Minnesota Jaycees.[37] [38] During the same year, Orange Music released two compilation CDs; The Road Ahead and In the Heart of Everyone, in addition to re-

releasing his Christmas Around the World album.[39] These are distributed throughout Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, and Indonesia.[40] In a review of In the Heart of Everyone, Yeoh Wee Teck remarked, "Instead of attempting to fuse elements of different cultures like everyone else, he chose to rely on what he knows best simple arrangements with assured piano playing."[41] Subsequent releases include For the Love of It, Piano Love Songs, and Hymns and Spiritual Songs. On these albums, Joseph arranges piano, orchestra, and soft rhythms to cover melodies such as "I’ll Never Fall in Love Again" (Burt Bacharach), "Fields of Gold" (Sting), and "Ave Maria" (Schubert). He has produced numerous CD and DVD projects designed for pets in a While You Are Gone series.[42][43] His music is used throughout the DVD, Isle Royale Impressions Volume II, containing video footage by Carl TerHaar of scenery and wildlife from the Isle Royale National Park in Michigan.[44] Joseph has published many of his compositions in sheet music form. His music has been heard in regular rotation in the United States and Canada by more than 160 major radio networks including XM and Sirius satellite radio; in the United Kingdom including RTÉ lyric fm; as well as airwaves in Japan, Spain, China, South-East Asia, Thailand, Germany, Switzerland, and Russia.[45][46] [47] Airlines such as Aeroméxico, AirTran, Frontier, JetBlue, and ExpressJet feature Joseph’s music in their in-flight music programs. The Weather Channel also utilizes his compositions during the "Local on the 8s" segments, and his song "Friday’s Child" is included in their 2008 compilation release, The Weather Channel Presents: Smooth Jazz II.[48] In April 2008 Joseph was presented the "WPS Foundation Arts and Academics Hallmarks of Pride" award for outstanding achievements by an alumnus.[23]

arrangements, making recordings, and publishing and distributing his works. "I’m my own boss. I can do what I want. I can change directions", he told West Central Tribune’s Anne Polta.[21] As an independent, business is a prime concern and can take over if not controlled, Joseph said.[7] "A lot of musicians don’t learn the business. You just have to be well-rounded in both areas. You have to understand publishing. You have to understand how you make money, what’s in demand, what helps you make the most out of your talent." "I couldn’t license my music if it wasn’t mine", he said. "It has allowed me to create CDs. It separates you from the million other great players."[21] But some artists just want to be involved in the music and do not like the added problems or have the personality to work with both. Joseph suggests newer artists read and study both courses and pick one that best suits their needs and wants. He advises, "...to keep your eyes and ears open all the time. All the information you need is available to you to have a successful career in music, if you’re paying attention, and not closed off to anything." "Perseverance is King."[7] When asked by Wheeler what brought him back to Minnesota after living in Los Angeles and traveling around the world, Joseph replied, "The first thing business people say is ’First and foremost, if you want to be successful, live where you want to live’." He grew up there and family were important to him. When he decided to become a solo artist he wanted to be comfortable in his environment and moved back.[7]

Musical style and composition
Joseph believes that "music allows a person to express their deepest thoughts, thoughts that cannot be expressed with just words." [49] Debbage comments, "One strength of Bradley Joseph as an artist has been his keen ability to write inspiring music with appropriately titled songs that express that thought non-verbally".[29] In an interview with Indie Journal, he has said that when writing music he prefers to concentrate on the melody first, stating, "Basically, I write from a two-person standpoint. First, I let the song take hold and I put down the idea as a raw emotional statement. Then I let it breathe and come back,

Thoughts on success as an independent artist
Having experienced both avenues of recording on a major label and later choosing to be an independent artist, a combination of musicianship with business know-how has helped give Joseph staying power in the notoriously competitive world of music. He spends most of his time writing songs, composing

approaching from more of an objective point of view. This allows me to rediscover the true meaning I intended in the beginning, shedding new light on how I can best represent that to the listener."[7] The range of ways in which he utilizes synthesizers is equally as characteristic, inspired early in life by keyboard-oriented pop/rock bands like Styx and Journey.[5] Joseph’s musical style and direction have varied over time, having released more than a hundred original compositions and arrangements since 1994. "When I write it, it just kind of moves, because where I am in life is different", Joseph said. "So as I get older, it kind of changes."[38] His recordings can offer full orchestrations such as in Hear the Masses, or Rapture that combines smooth jazz with contemporary instrumental themes.[29] A review of Rapture from New Age Voice states Joseph "paints romantic pictures in sound with voices and instruments that escalate from quiet, intimate passages to big, energetic movements". "The arrangements are structured so that the trumpet can lead a line out on ’Be Still’ signaling an introspective sort of mood; yet the strings swell on ’The Passage’ engulfing the listener in an ocean of sound." "Even cuts that start quiet, such as ’Healing the Hollow Man’ or ’Blue Rock Road’ ebb and flow between quiet moments and crescendos."[50] In contrast, later albums such as Solo Journey and The Journey Continues are considered to be "stripped back and basic" by Debbage, with the latter featuring "Joseph and his piano with no additional clutter". "There is color in the songs via their understated melodies."[29] As examples, Debbage describes Joseph as using a chord progression that translates into a strolling rhythm in the song "The Road Ahead".[29] Solo Piano Publications contributor, Kathy Parsons, writes, "...’The Long, Last Mile’ starts out with a bittersweet melody, and then builds in intensity and complexity with cello, winds, and ethereal sounds intertwining around the piano. Then it breaks off, and the opening melody returns."[51] For the 2002 album One Deep Breath, Joseph combines "structured melodic pieces and free-form ambient compositions",[54] which "departs dramatically from the previous more explosive and dynamic music on his first two recordings, Hear the Masses and Rapture".[33] Binkelman writes, "It is an album

with two distinct ’feels’ to it: the more serene new age/ambient soundscapes that bookend the inner tracks and the more radio-friendly and mainstream music in-between."[33] For instance, the song "Dance of Life" was inspired by Antonin Dvorak’s opera, [52] It is a bit more straightforward "Rusalka". in its piano presentation, and will probably appeal the most to hardcore fans of solo instrumental music, says Instrumental [53] Then the album closes with its Weekly. title track, "One Deep Breath", that "floats and meanders for more than ten minutes, bringing in ocean sounds".[54] It is "far and away the most ambient of everything else to be found here",[53] and is "stunning, both in its execution and how radical a change it is from what has come before".[33] While discussing Joseph’s 2008 release, Classic Christmas, Gerry Grzyb, chairman of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh sociology department, states that Joseph’s usual approach is to play the carol straight, and then add his own twists. "... he’s very effective at that—he doesn’t stray as far as a jazz or classical organ improviser might, but he does keep the interest up." Grzyb says that the same applies to Joseph’s earlier Christmas Around the World CD, which he found even more interesting because of the use of other instrumental sounds.[55] Debbage depicts "A Minnesota Snowfall" from the same album as taking "a more naked, bare-boned ballad approach".[30] Parsons goes on to say, "The influence of years of touring with Yanni is apparent in the richness of Joseph’s sound, but his musical voice is his own."[54] Yanni once said, "Bradley, your extreme sensitivity is your greatest gift".[23] Joseph later realized what Yanni meant was that he needed that as a composer, that it was a crucial component "to be sensitive to what you see and to be able to apply that to music".[23] He believes that the spiritual aspect of creating is to "find something deep within yourself that can only be created by you". ..."Your spiritual self cannot be copied and that’s why it’s so significant in life and music", he says.[49] Musically, he tries to connect a common bridge between such exhilarating feelings as performing at the Acropolis, to the emotions each and everyone feels everyday. "In the end, a good melody will always stand the test of time", says Joseph.[7]

“ The piano ” is always true to me. In times of despair, happiness, and joy, its mood is always my own. —Bradley Joseph, [56] Polta reports that he often references the past when he names his songs and his music is frequently reminiscent of his rural Minnesota roots.[21] "Wind Farmer" was inspired by childhood visits to a relative’s farm near Olivia, and his company, Robbins Island Music, is named after a city park in Willmar.[21] Generally, Joseph’s music gets airplay in the adult contemporary, smooth jazz, easy listening, and beautiful music radio formats, and while some is classified in the new age genre, he considers contemporary instrumental to fit his style of playing the best.[7] In discussing Rapture, John Blake of The Atlanta Journal notes that often new age music sounds as if it should be played in a supermarket. The songs can sound like musical cotton candy — soft, airy and ultimately uninteresting. "For the most part, Bradley’s music doesn’t make that mistake."[57] "The music is cinematic, filled with introspective piano solos, swelling violins, and a hypnotic song pacing that allows the listener to daydream."[57] Joseph employs a variety of instruments to compose including the Korg Triton music workstation, Korg SG-1 piano, and occasionally Korg M1.[58] Rack units have included Roland JD-800, and Roland JV-1080 which he says is "great for string layers".[7] The Alesis D4, Yamaha SY22, and Yamaha TG77 which has "some nice ethereal textures" have been utilized; working also with E-mu Systems Proteus 1, Proteus 2, and the E-5000 sampler because it is "easy to use and has a great library".[7] Acoustic pianos vary, Yamaha and Bösendorfer were used for the 1997 album, Rapture.
