Patrick Bradley - Exhale

Recording artists aspire toward a time in their career when their music and the process by which it is realized become as natural as the ordained rushing of a sparkling mountain spring. Keyboardist/Composer Patrick Bradley has arrived at that rarefied space with his 5th album…Exhale (releasing January 15, 2021 via the Patricks Song Factory label). That he has reached this peak even while working with a new collaborator, producer/saxophonist/composer/multi-instrumentalist Darren Rahn (with Jeff Lorber returning to co-produce 2 of the 11 songs), is even more serendipitous. Exhale sounds and feels as breezy as it was to create – as rewarding for the listener as it is a testament to the growth of the artist.

“This fifth record is coming right on track with my every three-year trajectory,” Bradley quietly marvels. “My goal was to continue my musical journey with some accessible radio music but also stick to my Jazz Fusion and Progressive Rock roots. The project was originally going to be titled ‘Providence,’ the theme about being grateful to God and a title track that I almost slotted onto my last record… until I connected with Darren Rahn. After three successful albums with Jeff Lorber, I felt it was time to explore a different approach, while still retaining Jeff for two numbers. Dave Koz introduced me to Darren and we instantly connected on many levels. We started in late Fall collaborating and preparing songs. I wanted my new music to provide a release from recent tensions in the world with a Christ- centered foundation. All of these songs are imbued with senses of hope and relaxing – even the more rockin’ ones!”

JANUARY 16, 2021 Patrick Bradley - Exhale

When, in 2017, jazz-fusion keyboard player Patrick Bradley released ‘Intangible’ on his own Song Factory label I described it as an album that was sure to find favour with fusion aficionados everywhere. At its heart was Bradley’s collaboration with Jeff Lorber who, as well as producing throughout, combined with Bradley to co-write all ten numbers. Now Bradley is back for 2021 with the excellent ‘Exhale’ and although he again teams with Lorber for two choice tunes the main thrust of his artistic interplay is with songwriter, producer and sax-man supreme Darren Rahn
