Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 17, 2007
Recorded in Philadelphia at Bradford Sound Studios. Gershon Bradley duets with Claudia Pellegrini on "Christmas Healing."
"I love Christmas and I was inspired by all the Christmases I've been fortunate enough to celebrate with my friends and family," commented Gershon. "Claudia and I were committed to make a special song this Christmas that sounded pop and at the same time classical."
Gershon, who previously released his debut CD JOURNEY, on Eclectic Music For The World, features 13 all new original songs written by Gershon Bradley and Claudia Pellegrini. This new album, recorded over a one and a half year period at Bradford Sound Studios, Philadelphia, represents Gershon's life journey and a dream come true. Listening to it proves his musical talent for writing, singing and producing. All the songs on it are first class, very well put together and great listening. Gershon is bursting into flames to communicate his messages to all his fans through his music and voice.
The CD includes active songs and quiet songs ... songs that reflect a variety of moods for a wide range of listeners. His primary goal is to make the listener reflect about life and feelings in a positive way. "I feel easy listening music is fading away and have the need to bring its purpose back on track."
"Journey," features material co-written with singer/songwriter and producer Claudia Pellegrini, with songs recorded in English, Italian and Spanish. This CD reveals his truly natural singing talent. Gershon adds a slight operatic tone to his singing style of "classical pop" or "pop opera."
"Journey" contains one duet "Trust In Me" co-written by Claudia Pellegrini. Their voices seem to meld into one. Other standouts include New York (Always Reminds Me Of Your Love) and the sweepingly romantic "If You Only Knew"; both written by Gershon. "New York" is a reflection of his college days in New York City and "If You Only Knew" ... well, everyone's always had a secret admirer, right? It is hard to pick a favorite on this CD, as all are well written, arranged and recorded.
"My dream came true. It took a long time but I did it. I gave all I have from my heart and from my soul,"Gershon says. Gershon's desire to share his love of music -- and music making -- led him to become a sound engineer and studio owner. Basically, this production is a "doing it all: producing, arranging, engineering and singing in collaboration with Claudia Pellegrini. Claudia is an outstanding talented individual who, too, developed an appreciation for music at an early age. Two years ago when Gershon and Claudia first met, they both knew very little about music production and recording, but their driven spirits made this wonderful CD an outstanding piece of art. This CD is a true statement of his ability to keep his fans coming back.

Gershon was saddened by the recent passing of Luciano Pavarotti. As a young boy, Gershon was nicknamed "little Pavarotti". He always admired the marvelous control Luciano had over his voice and his captive audience. "I felt the emotion of the lyrics with every word he sang", says Gershon. "He sings from within." Gershon feels the need to express his sorrows in writing and singing a joyful and befitting tribute to Pavarotti, "You Still Make The World Smile". While driving to pick up a piece of studio equipment, Gershon uttered to Claudia, "I've got it, listen to this melody". Claudia then removes a keyboard from the back of the car, lays down a few chords, and lyrics flow from their mouths. This song is available, at no cost, as a download from Gershon's website, and will feature a collection of favorite Pavarotti photographs.
