"There are some who have claimed Brad Wolfe to be a modern day Paul Simon or Cat Stevens, an acoustic wunderkind. As Brad Wolfe and the Moon progressed through their set, it became apparent that these comparisons are not only valid, but well deserved." --Performer Magazine
The origins of Brad Wolfe and the Moon can be traced back to 2006, when they released their first album to a sold out Great American Music Hall, with an opening performance by Sara Bareilles. BW&M's music has been featured on MTV as well as top Bay Area radio stations Alice 97.3 and KFOG. They have shared the stage with Rusted Root, the Gin Blossoms, Howie Day, and members of Dave Matthews Band and Counting Crows.
After a long hiatus, Brad Wolfe and the Moon are back, with new material but with the same passionate live performances.
Aside from music, Wolfe is a multifaceted creator, activist and author. Named after his song, "Sara's Got A Sunbeam," Brad is also the co-founder of the Sunbeam Foundation, fighting rare pediatric cancers in memory of his close friend, Sara, who passed away from Ewing's Sarcoma at 21 years of age. The organization has provided pivotal seed-funding for groundbreaking cancer research across the United States.
Wolfe graduated with an MA in sociology from Stanford University and an MBA from UC Berkeley. He co-authored the acclaimed Breakfast on Mars and 37 Other Delectable Essays to help inspire young people toward a love of writing. Wolfe also co-founded Backlight.org, a website to promote creativity and meaning online, as well as Hungry for Obama, a unique fundraising platform that caught the eye of the Obama Campaign and has served as a model for other organizations. He is currently working with IDEO, where he produced and created the Re:Imagine | End of Life, a citywide festival on living and dying through art, experience, and design.
