Bradley Skaught is a true blue singer-songwriter and rock and roller, something that is pretty hard to sustain long-term in this day and age. I first became aware of him because my old bandmate Aaron plays bass in his band the Bye Bye Blackbirds. He writes subtle, flawlessly constructed pop songs suffused in rock history; and the band always manages to punch well above its weight. If you've ever been in a band, you probably know how hard it can be to sound "real" like that. It's a gift, really.

(If you want to buy a book and take a picture of yourself pretending to read it -- and who wouldn't? -- you can get it Sounds Radical or Amazon. Sounds Rad sends it out with extra stuff, plus the accompanying album can be downloaded instantly from the site.)
