Brad was the second member to join Shinedown after vocalist Brent Smith. They met through a mutual friend of Brent’s A&R contact, local Jacksonville producer Pete Thornton.[1]

In March 2007, it was reported that Brad had left Shinedown. No official statement was made, leaving the fans to speculate amongst themselves. On September 20, 2008 on his newly created MySpace, Brad posted a lengthy blog that provided information about his time with Shinedown and his controversial departure. He told of tensions between band members during the recording of Shinedown's second album, and that "the reason I was given was that 'I never got over what happened in the studio and during the recording of Us and Them."[citation needed]


In 2007, Brad joined the pop rock band Amaru, the brainchild of former Burn Season drummer Bobby Amaru.

Society RedEdit

In June 2008, Brad made the decision to join the rock/grunge/alternative band Society Red, which features another former member of Burn Season, vocalist Damien Starkey. At this time, he also parted ways with Amaru.


In March 2010, it was announced that Brad has replaced Jeff Abercrombie in the Fuel revival band Re-Fueled.[2] In April 2010, it was officially announced that Re-Fueled lineup would be using the name of Fuel and going on a world tour starting in April 2010.[3]
