Brad Kash was born into a family of writers. His great-grandmother, Nellie Richardson was a farmer turned poet who had four poetry books published during her lifetime. His grandmother and Nellie’s daughter, Faith Senior was a secretary for the U.S. government Office of Strategic Services in Washington D.C. and later created and published the internationally circulated pet magazine, Granny’s Pet Gazette. Brad’s mother, Joanne Kash, who was also Faith’s daughter, was a successful photojournalist whose photographs and positive human-interest stories have been published by newspapers and magazines across the globe.
Originally from Daytona Beach, Florida, Brad began playing guitar and writing songs at the age of 15. He performed in several local rock and new wave bands in the mid to late 1980’s, while also earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting.
Brad’s educational decision ultimately led him to a career on the business side of music where he has held roles as an artist manager, talent agent, and music publisher, as well as executive-level accounting and finance positions with record labels and music publishing companies. His background includes Director of Finance for EMI Music and later Vice President of Finance & Royalties for Big Machine Label Group.
In an earlier senior management accounting position with Hard Rock International, Brad was responsible for the final acquisition approval and valuation of the company’s worldwide music memorabilia collection. He is currently the Director of Royalties, Audits and Special Projects with Wiles + Taylor & Co. CPA’s – a financial business management and tax firm that supports high net-worth music industry clients.
Throughout his career, Brad has worked with several multi-platinum and gold-selling recording artists, producers, and songwriters including Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Toby Mac, Chris Tomlin, Switchfoot, and Twenty One Pilots, just to name a few, as well as Rock ‘N’ Roll icons, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis.
As an author, Brad’s first novel, Surface, was published in 2001. In 2018 he released A Model Mind, a fictional journey surrounding the life of famed 80’s rock star, Tommy Model, who loses it all to find everything some thirty years later. An entertaining second-chance story of love, hope, and inspiration, it also thoughtfully touches on the devastating impact of Alzheimer’s- a disease that personally affected both of Brad’s parents in their later years.
Brad and his wife Stephanie married in 1989 and they reside in Brentwood, Tennessee just outside of Nashville.
