Bio

Bradley was born and raised in rural Pennsylvania, and influenced by artists such as Neil Young, Tom Waits, Eddie Vedder, James Hetfield, and Glen Phillips. He began writing and performing in the early 90’s, & his songs reflected both his rural upbringing and his diverse influences.

In 1999, Bradley moved to Denver, CO and the Rocky Mountain culture both broadened and fueled his songwriting. As a songwriter, Bradley writes in many genres including folk, pop, country, alt-country, and rock.

As a performer, with his percussive picking style & a voice that has drawn comparisons to everyone from Neil Finn to Ed Kowalczyk to Bret Michaels, Bradley can connect with audiences of any size.

In addition to his solo/acoustic act, Bradley fronts the Denver rock band 'The Bad Directions' who perform regionally & continue to shock audiences with their intense blend of rock, country, folk, & metal.

2006 found Bradley taking one step closer to his goal of becoming a professional songwriter by signing his first publishing deal. A regional fall tour found him showcasing his talents as a sideman by supporting Nashville artist 'Marthia Sides' on rhythm guitar. Bradley also continued his role as 'Billy Joe' in the 'Green Day' tribute band 'American Idiots' & donned a gorgeous blond wig to front the 'Poison' tribute band 'Fallen Angel'.

What are folks sayin'?

'...uproarious yet bittersweet cow-punk hootenany.' (Jason Heller- Westword)

'We all long for that close up dose of leather pant clad, metal infused, Pennsylvania vibe ridin, country thang known as Bradley to lead us into another rousing chorus of 'truck stop hooker' as the bass & guitar riffs make us wonder why the rest of us bother trying to pluck the 4, 5, or 6 strings & pretend we know what we are doing.' (Russ Christiansen- Three Miles West)

'He was sorta pale, and didn't look anything like the front man of a country band would. He had on this sweet unassuming thrift store t-shirt and leather pants you could tell he was really proud of. I don't know why, but he reminded me of Ferris Bueler. He seemed like the type of guy that would sit next to me and make me laugh 'till I peed my pants in science class, then fall asleep and wake up later with a pencil stuck to his face. So it was awesome that he was up there playing music that makes you feel like a criminal.' (criketweb)

'There's a twang to their sound & a drive to the music that hits me in just the right place. These guys blur the lines between genres so badly, it's not even funny. The best I can do is call it 'punktry'. Half the time I didn't know whether I should tap my foot or bang my head. We'll just call it good.' (Michael Miller- Higher Listening)
