Brady LewisEast Saint Louis, IL
I am a trumpet player from E.St.Louis, Illinois. I have been playing and performing since I was 12 years old. I have performed at all the major venues in the Saint Louis Area performing a multitude of styles including :Jazz, Indie Rock, Folk, Soul, R&B,Hip Hop, Gospel, Bluegrass and Blues.
I also spent some time in Chicago,Illinois where i started a Hip Hop group known as Free Lunch and joined a Gospel group named New Sound that just signed onto Cinder Entertainment.
I take joy in making sure I take time to enjoy listening and playing all genres of music in order to better myself and apply rules and ideas from other genres into Jazz/Improvisational Music.
Green Finch (Johanna)
This song is my short exposition on a character from the music “Sweeney Todd”. The main character’s daughter, Johanna, is a character not dived into enough in my opinion in the musical but she is a very complex character. She has a abundance of situations around her that effect her but that she has no control over so she does not allow it to phase her. In this song I explore the idea of being surrounded by obstacles and tests while maintaining a sort of “Still” presence.
Into Your Arms
This song, Into Your Arms, is at it’s most basic form a song about the joy of finding someone you once knew. Even if that person is yourself this song aims to show the joy of being reunited
This song is based on a short poem by a friend of mine where we explored the story of two couples. The first being a couple forced to separate due to their parents issues with each other but always maintaining that love just waiting for their opportunity to finally be together. The second forced to constantly circle each other due to issues in their own life(Past Hurts, trust issues,etc) knowing they were meant to be but never being a able to be together
