Hours alone. Low lights, late nights, and soft melodies.

This is how NH-born composer Brad Couture crafts his music from start to finish - writing, playing, recording, and mixing all his own material in the isolation of his studio. From the first hammer strike on piano string, to the last synthesizer wrapping up all in a warm blanket, his sonic structures are constructed with care - emotionally inspired and acoustically defined.

From the sparse, ambient piano arrangements stretching to full orchestral swells backed by chiming guitars, his melodically driven songs weave uplifting crescendos with melancholic introspection to paint cinematic soundscapes.

With the release of Brad’s new album, Lower Tones, Brad has drawn additional inspiration from neo-classical styles of composition, replacing some the roaring guitars and pounding drums of previous releases with the gentle swells of ambient noise and solo cello. Lower Tones provides the perfect atmosphere to plug in earphones, and unplug from the world.

This is Brad Couture's a first full length album - He wrote, played, recorded and mixed every song himself.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
