And the fruits of his labours (can sheds have fruits?) are now becoming apparent – the space and the instruments have led to inspiration, or as Brad says “On the walls and in cases are dozens of instruments of all sorts: strings, woodwinds, brass, keys, percussion…I get an idea before my first sip of coffee, and by the time I go to bed, there’s a brand new song.”
