Konrad is the American song constructionist Jeffrey Konrad who puzzles together his unique brand of vocal poetics with a sorted sonic DNA that exhibits strains of indie, folk and electro. In the past he's recorded as an experimental electronica musician known as "Robot USA" as well as a folksy singer-songwriter called "Nigel Jeffrey". In mid-2000 Konrad launched Radical Turf Records; an imprint founded with the intent of releasing compilation albums by underground electronic artists. 3 compilations and 2 full lengths later, the label continues to evolve as a medium for eclectic and eccentric audio. Konrad's debut album "Loose Canyons" was released on Radical Turf in 2008. The album made it's debut on the CMJ Top 200 chart upon it's release. Konrad is currently finishing up a new album which is expected to arrive in late 2009.
