Album Notes
It has been three years since Braddigan started his solo career. He rode the waves with the indie band Dispatch for nine years until this past summer when the band played its epic finale in Boston, "The Last Dispatch," drawing an estimated 110,000 people. Braddigan carries on with the Dispatch legacy spending time building relationships, both locally and overseas, investing in a community of listeners who desire more than just music. His first solo album, Watchfires, released in February 2005 on his new label Third Surfer.

Braddigan is an intense soul, a visionary living a wild and traveled life with a clear purpose of bringing people together. Music, film, family, surfing, and hanging with kids in far-away lands are his passions. Whether he's touring in the states or working on one of his projects in Central or South America, his approach is the same, "It's never what you do in life, but the heart with which you do it," he offers. "And so if your heart's in the right place, then follows your identity. A pretty cool chain reaction. I guess I'm just trying to keep it simple: yea, of course I love making music, but whatever man, it's just a bridge... getting to be with people because I play and sing, getting them all fired up, and growing my faith in the process, now that's where it's at..."

As far as his sound? Braddigan's music may best be described as "what would happen in a loving fist-fight between Paul Simon, Jack Johnson, and Pearl Jam!" As a drummer/guitar player/singer-songwriter, his songs are rooted in beautifully heavy rhythms, layers of harmonies, and cultural snapshots from his travels. Whether reggae, folk, latin, or rock, Braddigan's music flows lyrically from a deep well of adventures.

At current, in response to the tsunami tragedy and the crisis in the Sudan, Braddigan has brought 19 artists together on a compilation CD entitled "the Relief Project" to raise funds for Save the Children, an organization dedicated to protecting and healing displaced children the world over... The record features tracks from Arrested Development, North Mississippi Allstars, Dispatch, Phil Keaggy, Slightly Stoopid, and many, many more... "the Relief Project" benefit CD will be sold from one person to the next, it won't be available in stores, so please help spread the word-- it'll be released early august 2005.

Very Nice
Braddigan, a surfer, a Christian, and above all, an awesome musician! I fist heard his song Pura Vida as a soundtrack of a surf film. Got hooked right away! Great guitar playing, precussion, and harmonicas make this CD difficult to stop listening to. Plus, Braddigan has a superb voice. It's great surf rock, and great chill out music. Buy it. You'll like it!


dont be stupid, buy it right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is one of the best cds i own. it is the perfect album to chill to. its great in every way. braddigan's sound is so unique! I was upset when dispatch was breaking up, but it seems Braddigan and the other guys are still making incredible music on their own!!!!!! Love you Braddigan. if you like this stuff check out Red Shepherd on cd baby.


Swaying Sweetness!
I thought that the songs on this CD were fabulous! I found myself becoming pleasantly relaxed as I listened to the hypnotizing rhythms and thought-provoking lyrics of the songs. I would definitly buy this Braddigan's CD and pop it in anytime that I wanted to break away from the daily grind!


perfect chill-out album
absolutely great album and one of the bests i've ever heard in this genre. braddigan (former band member of dispatch) made a fantastic acoustic album with a great use of percusion and few drums. there are also really nice instrumental tracks (Keaggy Jam and Noah's Arc) on the disc.
...sometimes it remebers me to old dispatch records ;).

humble masterpiece
I'd spent years looking for an album like this and when i got my hands on it last year i've never let it go, Theres so much truth and heart in this record, its a humble masterpiece, one of the most beutiful memories of my life was listening to this record on the beach after a days surf as the sun was setting at a time when i was so close to god. buy it, you will love it.


Love it!
I love this CD. We first heard Braddigan on the outsiders soundtrack and are stoked to have his full CD. God bless you guys!
