Home Routes: David Bradstreet & Paul Mills
November 20, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Dave & Paul work perfectly together on stage and can bring an audience to its feet with excitement – or to its knees with pure emotion. They complement each others’ songs and styles so well, culled from their decades long friendship.
David Bradstreet came to Canada from England with his parents. After studying architecture he played the college coffeehouse circuit in the U.S. and for three years visited most states as a solo performer. He spent two years in New York City working with Peter Yarrow and Phil Ramone including a duo with Mimi Farina. He teamed up with Lazarus and Albert Grossman in Woodstock NY and toured with Todd Rundgren. Returning to Canada, one of his songs, “Renaissance”, became a folk standard – followed by the JUNO for Best New Male Vocalist 1977. The late ’70s saw two high profile albums on A&M, “David Bradstreet” and “Dreaming in Colour”, which led to major tours, concert and broadcast appearances. On his Street Records label, he released, “Black & White” in 1981.
Paul Mills has been in the music game for a long time. He has been part of many different bands and also performed extensively as a solo act at festivals, clubs and concert halls all over Canada, sometimes under the name of his alter-ego, Curly Boy Stubbs! He’s a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and does a wide variety of songs, both serious and humorous.
