Brady Novotny started playing the guitar at the age of 10. Determined to
be a world class guitarist, he left his first guitar lesson with his
instructor telling him basically to give it up now. Thus he was
introduced to criticism and disappointment early in his endeavor.
Nevertheless, Brady heard a guitar player that would motivate him to
push all that aside and re-energrize his passion to continue; that
guitar player was Randy Rhoads. Brady soon fell in love with classical
and melodic guitar playing. Brady practiced restlessly learning
everything from classical pieces, melodic and virtuosic solos from 80’s
guitar heroes, to jazz fusion.
Brady loved the guitar, and truly, that has been his passion. He
attended Berklee College of Music for a little time. At the age of 19,
he was asked to teach summer guitar workshop at Duquesne University. As
life often happens, however, Brady got burned out and went back to
school and received his masters in Psychology. Yep, that’s right —
Psychology. But the passion is back and stronger than ever, plus it
never hurts to have some money!
Brady set out to do an instrumental project that would have his
listeners singing the haunting melodies while holding their attention by
uniquely placed guitar virtuosity and dynamic rhythms creating a fusion
of rock, flamenco, and jazz. His love for a variety of musical styles
led him to study under many teachers in his life. Brady started out
playing Classical guitar at the age of 10. Ever since then, Brady has
had a strong affection for nylon string guitar sound. Ultimately, this
led him to study Flamenco guitar. He immediately fell in love with the
passion, virtuosity and rhythm of this style. The shred of the 80’s was
one of his main influences and guilty pleasures, while Jazz was a big
influence on Brady’s chordal choices and song color.
Brady has a wide range of experience in the music business. His
experience ranges from the Pittsburgh rock scene to national tours. He
has worked as a Pittsburgh session guitarist, Worship leader, and
guitarist at several mega churches. He has also taught guitar at clinics
His 2019 release with MTS Management Group/MTS Records is “Passions
Collide” featuring the lead single, “Redemption’s Cry.” The song,
featuring a hauntingly beautiful vocal from Brady’s wife, Jennifer, is
currently charting on the Airplay Today national radio charts.
