2019 is shaping up as a highlight reel-type year for Cranberry, PA-based guitar virtuoso (and relationship/sex therapist) Brady Novotny. His debut album was released in February, and it’s won the praises of critics around the globe. His first single, “Redemption’s Cry” was a staple on AC and rock stations this spring, charting both nationally and internationally. He appeared on Fox and ABC TV, as well as taking up a half page in Guitar Player Magazine. Brady also opened for one of his guitar heroes, Paul Gilbert. At only 6 months into the year, what more could the mild-mannered guitarist from Pittsburgh ask for?
This past Saturday, that question was answered when Brady’s latest single and video, “Passions Collide” reached #3 on the iTunes Rock Songs chart in Canada. The flamenco-influenced track was beat out only by the new Freddie Mercury single and Queen’s classic, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Novotny came in ahead of time-tested favorites by Journey, AC/DC, Fleetwood Mac and a host of household names.
A man of few words, Novotny said, “It was awesome to see ‘Passions’ charting!’
“Passions Collide” was produced by Pittsburgh favorite son, David Granati of the Granati Bros and G-Force.
