Bio

“Bradley Wik and the Charlatans' debut album “Burn What You Can, Bury the Rest...” proves that Rock and Roll is not dead but it is in fact alive and well.”
- No Depression (Jan. 15, 2012).

This Blue Collar Rock N’ Roll band has appeared on the music scene with a bang. Already picked as a top album of 2012 by several reviewers, featured Radio play and in studio performances on KINK, KPAM, KZME, KXTG with “This Old House” “Friday Night is for the Drinkers” and “Midwest Winters” Bradley Wik and the Charlatans have an album that’s worth a damn.

Born and raised in the Midwest amongst factories and honest hardworking people, Bradley doesn’t shy away from his rural roots. He brings an Alt. Country feel to several of his songs. “Burn What You Can, Bury the Rest…” is a royal mix of roaring guitars over rolling organs and pounding drums, satisfied by Bradley’s raw vocals and a few guest appearances...
