Bradford Loomis, Songwriter, Singer, MusicianBradford and Kimberly Loomis are of the dynamic duo, married couple variety. Kimberly is highly involved in Bradford’s career. Among her contributions are tech support, photography, co-writing, and community management.
 
Our conversation opens with how Bradford was thrust back into music following economic change and a job loss. It sounds like it’s turned out to be the best career choice that’s ever been forced upon him. 🙂 
 
He has a weekly Facebook live broadcast on which he performs, conducts guest interviews, and interacts with his growing community. Bradford sees these broadcasts as a channel for supporting others, as much as he sees it as a place to share his music. Cutting out the middleman is a primary focus for the Loomis’. My favorite example is that they host their own subscription platform for patrons. This is in lieu of Patreon, a wildly popular platform for subscription based communities. They also created their own recording label.
 
Kimberly Loomis, Lineage Artistry, PhotographerWe discuss all of this plus their entrepreneurial take on the business of music, Bradford’s music mastermind group, house shows (aka house concerts), how his partnership with Kimberly is making a difference in his career, and much more.
