Think of a Song

plus Paul Bradley

Singer-songwriter Brian Madigan is famed for his lengthy, spoken intros. So what if he were to remove the songs altogether – only thinking them ‘out loud’ with the audience invited to imagine them? Would that be deeply uncomfortable, transcendental, or a brief moment of sanity amid the cacophony of everyday madness?
