Brooklyn based guitarist and composer Douglas Bradford was born in New Orleans. He received his education from the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts, the University of New Orleans, and performing at music venues in the “Big Easy.” Since relocating to New York in 2006, he has collaborated with many artists endeavoring to create pan-idiomatic music. His debut CD as a leader, ‘:atlas obscura’ described as a “refreshing debut” (NYC Jazz Record) and “quite a tight and powerful quartet” (Downtown Music Gallery) was released on Fresh Sound New Talent Records. His most recent project, the Longest Day of the Year, is a new-music ensemble of clarinet, cello, baritone guitar, and drums, blending through-composition and improvisation. Noted for having “a beautiful touch, a unique harmonic sensibility and a musical maturity beyond his years,” (Peter Bernstein) Douglas has contributed to several recordings as a sideman and has performed at international festivals and venues in Europe, USA, and Central America.
