1975-1985: Bradley first sees his father's Gibson J-45 laying around the house. His dad teaches him House of the Rising Sun. Bradley spends the next several years goofing off with Iron Maiden and Judas Priest riffs. An overabundance of energy prevents him from sitting still long enough do anything resembling "practice."
1989-1994: Graduates from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Theatre. Learns a few Zeppelin and Floyd songs. Decides to dedicate himself to rock climbing instead of rock music. The family is not pleased.
1995-2000: Works as climbing guide and spends as much free time as possible climbing all over the USA. Especially Yosemite and the South. Injuries force a 2 year break from hard climbing. Discovers Bluegrass and Old time music. Starts taking Clawhammer banjo and Flatpicking lessons.
2002-2004: Spends a winter in the Caribbean practicing and writing songs. Decides this is what he needs to be doing with his time. Puts to rest a few last remaining climbing objectives in Tennessee and Yosemite. Moves to Seattle.
2004-2011: Practice, practice, practice. Finally completes his first recording. The Real Job. A collection of guitar instrumentals that draw influences from Bluegrass, Rock, and Folk guitar styles. This year Bradley also scored Patagonia documentary "Power in the Pristine" which won first place for Best Documentary Short at the Sedona Film Festival. Look for Bradley on the cliffs in his spare time.
Joel and Tom joined together to play music while attending North Park University. Their first show had an attendance of 70 people in the small commons place on campus called Java Haus. Over the next three years they would collaborate and refine the sound they were developing and continue to grow in popularity around campus. At the end of their time at N.P.U. they would play their final concert to upwards of 300 people. The decision to move across the country was made, abandoned, and then made again. Joel and Tom then spent the rest of the summer writing new material. After saying goodbye to Chicago they now reside in Seattle to pursue lives as working class musicians. Landing on the name Lowlands, Tom and Joel now embark on an unknown path.
