I was born with a knot in my mouth, tongue tied. And as I grew older, I learned to speak with music, writing down words, playing them through a guitar. I always felt alone, but was always followed by love, until one day it vanished and flew up to the clouds. So now it looks down upon me, watching my every move, my every sound, guiding me through this mystery called life. That comes and goes in a blink of an eye. But even as life, love, vanishes before our very eyes, we can always find light, in the darkness of the sky.
Brad was born in the small town of Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Made up of endless forests, dark mountain terrain and a rugged North Atlantic coastline, it was these intense landscapes that engrained themselves into the fabric of Brad’s creative consciousness.
In 2005 Brad packed up and headed for Toronto to focus his energy on a potential musical career. With a collection of songs already written, Brad formed The Evelyn Room, recording an independently released self-titled EP released in the spring of 2008; 2009 brought the band several nominations at the XM Radio Verge Awards, which resulted in radio play for both live and recorded performances. That same year, Brad had begun to amass songs that didn’t fit the mold of The Evelyn Room’s rock sound. Unsure about what to do next and trying to make sense of this new musical path, Brad finally decided it was time to try something new.
In 2011 Brad hit the studio, recording an album of acoustic folk songs inspired by his east coast upbringings. This first fully solo effort, For Your Weakness, was finally released in October 2012 on Sparks Music and has quickly built a buzz. For even more info - check out his website here.

If you had to do a double take at the name, you’re not the only one. She’s 5’2”, with a petite frame and a simple sound; she’s R. Shelley, a local musician hitting the scene hard. The only thing big about her is the impression she’s making on the Toronto music scene and music fans across the board. To get an idea of her sound, think of City and Colour circa 2005 fronted by Colbie Caillat. Check her out online, right at this link.
