About Brad Lindsey View Full Biography
Brad Lindsey started his musical career in grade school during the early 60's. His first instrument of choice was the trumpet. He learned to read sheet music and other basic music principals early on which helped greatly in the future.
One night when Brad was still young he had a dream where someone handed him a beautiful electric guitar and instructed him to "play something." In the dream he took the guitar and began playing and the most wonderful music came out. At the time Brad thought this dream was strange as he didn't know how to play the guitar or even own one. He didn't even have any friends who played! This would prove to be the start of a very fruitful career as a professional guitarist.
In 1965 Brad and his family moved to beautiful Loveland Colorado. At this time his band teacher move him to playing the French horn, and he continued with that for a few years. Even though it wasn't the guitar, it kept him on his musical journey.
In 1968 Brad finally began getting involved with the guitar crowd and met friends who were already into the instrument. This was so exciting to Brad that he went to Woolworth's and bought his first guitar. He chose one that looked just like the one in his dream.
Brad found some old guitar books and began learning chords and other basics, and after only one year began getting quite proficient on his instrument. He kept practicing the guitar, but one instrument simply wasn't enough for him.
Brad's Dad owned a theater which had an old piano by the stage. Brad's new after school hobby became visiting the theater and using his knowledge of guitar chords and music theory to learn the piano. Before long Brad was playing some of his favorite Beetles songs.
From there Brad moved to Denver in 1971 and kept practicing. By 1980 Brad was playing in bands around Denver. Sometimes rock and roll and sometimes country.
Brad went on the road touring for two and a half years around 1990, and while never hitting the big time he made many friends and had a great time along the way. Brad currently resides in Loveland Colorado and tours the area playing the guitar, piano and more.
