Meet Brad Kinder

Brad Kinder started Big River Records in 2009. Once a part-time profession for Kinder, who graduated from Marshall University in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in finance, he decided to make his passion of music production a full-time endeavor in 2018. Working with such artists as Dinosaur Burps, Vern’s Pot O’ Chili, Corey Lee McQuade and many others, he sharpened his skills as both an audio engineer and musician. Brad has been a drummer since 1994 and has shared the stage with such acts as The Yetti, Magic Bronson, Blistered Nifkin, Rockwell’s Ghost, The MFB and Low Seam. In addition to his work at Big River Records, Brad enjoys outdoor activities in the New River Gorge in BRR’s home base of Fayetteville, West Virginia, as well as collecting vinyl records and spending time with his basset hounds, Olive and Martha.
