Braden lived for his passions and when he became passionate about something, his devotion was unparalleled. A troubadour at heart, his intelligence, dry wit and dark humour were woven into each piece of his work. A trailblazer in his own right, Braden found comfort in the road less traveled. Solace in the obscure and beauty where others may find fear.
Braden’s love of music and guitars began at the age of 9. By his teens he joined his first band – The Red Party Pirates. He then played and toured professionally for 7 years with The McCartney Years. When not touring, Braden landscaped for Oxford Inst-Shade. Braden was a gifted photographer, loved travel – especially locates off the beaten path.
Braden loved family time, popcorn and sharing naps with sweetie
“If you believe in forever
then life is just a one-night stand.
If there’s a Rock & Roll heaven.
Well you know they’ve got
a hell of a band…….”
