Whether in an assisted living, country club, bar room, local, national festivals or private house concert; his music is a wonderful addition to any gathering. Alan started playing music while growing up in New Jersey. In college in the early 70's, Alan had the opportunity to play with many touring professionals, two of whom became great influences: Harry Chapin and James Taylor. Alan’s love of music led him to write and record his own songs. His CD of original music, "From the Heart", is having great success.“Johnson’s Farm” and “Cowboy Heaven”, which are getting worldwide airtime. BMI (the international music licensing agency which represents Alan) has just informed him that his original songs are now being used in films, and television shows. ********Review For his CD "From the Heart"*********** “With Alan Bradford’s “From the Heart”, he shows us that he is a songwriter who refuses to look the other way - and in refusing to do so, he opens our eyes and ears to the world around us; the good, the bad, and the ever-changing. With the prose and passion of Pete Seeger, and Jim Croce's smooth vocal sincerity, Alan's songs memorialize all of life's wonders and challenges. You’ll never forget Alan after listening to "From the Heart"!” Dr. Bob Your Big Picture Cafe
