The bios the gentlemen provided:
"Braidwood clearly wears his influences well, such as The Beatles, Nick Lowe, Matthew Sweet, Squeeze, Nilsson, Emitt Rhodes, The Odds, cheezy 60’s pop, Klaatu, Ian Gomm, innumerable one-hit wonders, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Marshall Crenshaw, Queen, and many, many more.
Braidwood brings 40 years of musical experience to the table. Like a perfectly aged wine, his songs have mellowed into fine & fun, highly melodic pieces of classic-style pop-rock ready to pour. It’s clear Braidwood understands melody and pop song construction, with strong melodies and lyrics that are clever and catchy. Well crafted melodic rock tailored to a more discerning, mature audience. As a singer-songwriter, Braidwood’s songs fall within the classic pop-rock genre, but stylistically, they’re pretty varied — a little bit of something for everyone."
What led me to write "Rest Of The Day"? It was basically a reply to an old girlfriend for her to "take me as I am". Money, or the lack of it at the time, was one of the central issues. But whatever the problems may have been, I swiped a remedy from the song "Sexual Healing" ... hence, the "we'll be rolling around, no more lonely and down for the day" in the last line in my song.
What are my future plans? Well, the standard response — at least from the honest ones — is to become rich and famous. However, if I had to be satisfied with only one or the other of those two options, I'd go for rich. And either rich or famous might not be as important as just plain old recognition of the merits of my craft. And I use the word "craft" intentionally. "Art" seems a little too pretentious for my taste, n'est-ce pas? But if one can truly be considered an artist, then it is perhaps such a one who is more truly deserving of both riches and fame.

"Truly pop confections, the melodies and lyrics are so catchy, they remind me of the clever bits of The Beatles when Radio and 45rpm singles ruled the roost when it came to the explosion known as the British Invasion. This is a perfect album for a Saturday or Sunday play; it's full of quirks and hooks that will engage your brain and body. There's magic in this music! It's a well-produced, not overproduced wall of sound."
