Brad Fernquist

Brad Fernquist is a professional touring and studio guitarist based out of Los Angeles, California.

Fernquist is primarily known for his work with The Goo Goo Dolls. At 17 years old Fernquist began touring with regional cover bands where he was able to develop his technique, and perfect his tone. Brad attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts for one semester but left the school after his gigging schedule started to grow.

Since moving to California Fernquist has become a well known sideman in pop/rock music. His first audition in Los Angeles was with popular 1990's rock group The New Radicals with whom he toured extensively. Since leaving the New Radicals Fernquist toured with Fastball, Hilary Duff, Lisa Marie Presley, Bonnie McKee, and most notably Michelle Branch.

While not on the road Fernquist works as a session guitarist. He played most of the lead guitar on Paul Stanley's "Live to Win" album. In early 2006 Brad joined the Goo Goo Dolls for their extensive "Let Love In" tour which kept him out on the road for the better part of 2 years. Brad is currently in the studio working with the Goo Goo Dolls on their forthcoming CD.

I used the MPC1000 on the new Goo Goo Dolls record and it worked out great!
