8bliss "Infinite Bliss"
“The musical diversity on this album is highly impressive. A place where real-life action transcends into thoughts and images, nothing less than existential matters, expertly arranged.”
“8bliss music titillates the soul. A revolutionary style that pushes the boundaries of typical Hip Hop to set a standard of what is destined to greatness. Deep lyrics that float on beats that twitter the eardrum, entice the mind, and calm the heart.”
“I feel like nothing I can say about his album will truly do it justice. Hip-Hop, spoken word, poetry, philosophy, spirituality, life. I'm stricken by the openness and honesty. Auditory artwork.”
Who is 8bliss?
My name is Bradley James Erlandson, AKA: 8bliss (Infinite Bliss). I'm a Beatmaker, Spoken Word Poet, and Video Artist. A peaceful warrior for life. I'm a 90's Skate Rat at heart. I've dedicated the past 17 years to fathering my Autistic son and LGBTQ teen daughter. Super proud. Love my kids so much.
Forever addicted to inspiration, but I haven't self-promoted or released anything in years. So my goal now is to just archive all my music on this site, for FREE DOWNLOAD.
After 20 years, I'm still making new joints. I'm just getting started, lol. I'm a lifer. Hit me up if you want to build!
