Bradley Hathaway is a poet who has been writing for nearly four years now. Before that, he never wrote or even studied literature. Hathaway ran a concert venue from 2001 to 2004, but stopped the business to begin tour with his poetry. He was published by Relevant Books in August of 2005. He is inspired to write by all of life's things, whether they are good or bad, pretty or ugly, and his favorite authors include Thomas Merton and C.S. Lewis. When asked what he wants to accomplish with his writing, Bradley responds: "Yesterday I had a vision of sorts. People had little seeds in their heads. As I spoke they begin to sprout, bud, and a large pink flower bloomed inside of their heads. That's what I hope to happen (inspiration, beauty, encouragement)." Bradley travels about 200 days of the year and has toured all of the United States, in Canada, Europe, and Australia. Bradley has toured with The Chariot, Blindside, mewithoutyou, He Is Legend, and many others.
