Bedford establishes himself as a songwriter in the tradition of musical icons ranging from Bill Morrissey to Woody Gutherie, casting individual people in the theater of the American landscape. A true son of the heartland, Bedford dips into the deep inkwell of classic American literature and writes with the “old soul” quality of his literary idols, such as John Steinbeck and Toni Morrison.
His music has been described as having “echoes too of Paul Simon’s soulful song craft and Loudon Wainwright’s narrative force.” –Sue Wilson, The Scotsman
In the past twelve years since the release of his first album, Bedford has played his songs for audiences all over the United States hitting notable venues such as The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Folkstage in Chicago, and the Fayetteville Roots Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas. His music has received extensive airplay on folk and roots radio in the U.S., as well as in Europe, taking him overseas on several occasions for concert dates on the continent and in the United Kingdom.
In July of 2010, Bedford was named one of the “50 Most Significant Folk Singer-Songwriters of the Past 50 Years” by Rich Warren of WFMT-Chicago.
In May of 2018, Bedford was named one of the six “Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk” winners at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas.
