"If you haven’t already picked up Bradley’s solo CD Deep Freeze, released a couple of month’s back, what the fuck are you waiting for? Danielle Paquette “Tunes” Fab Magazine

With a smooth and accomplished voice that echoes John Mayer and Tears for Fears’ Roland Orzabal, his songs really life you off the ground…Like a down-tempo version of England’s The Beloved, this is a tender, sexy, and very impressive debut…Bradley demonstrates an undeniable talent for song writing…with a voice that could pretty much melt anything, he should definitely be taken notice of….
Rob Bolton Exclaim!

"His voice is all about tender passion, with brooding love songs that have a modern chilled-out downbeat backdrop with a bit of a jazz feel. His writing skills are top-notch and slightly haunting; they linger with you for a long time. This disc has been on my heavy rotation list at home for more than a month. It’s exciting to see such a talented Toronto artist come through with a CD that has the potential to be a huge #1 hit…… Check Gavin out before he wins a Grammy. Danielle Paquette “Tunes” Fab Magazine

"The suitably cool Deep Freeze was recorded in Bradley's Toronto apartment using fairly minimal instrumentation -- keyboards, drum machines and occasionally strings and guitar. That puts the emphasis firmly on Bradley's wistful love songs and quietly expressive voice, which recalls British singers such as Morrissey, only without the self-pity...…." Mary Dickie - The Toronto Sun

"You'd figure Bradley could call in a few favors for his own material, but on his new solo album, Deep Freeze, Philosopher Kings guitarist James Bryan (whose new boutique label, UMI, is releasing the project) is the only guest who could be considered a star. Most singer/songwriters' debut albums feature their lyrical vision harnessed to someone else's sonic conception, but Deep Freeze's production itself is a statement...." Mike Doherty - The National Post

"I raved about this great collection of songs in a previous "confessions" having heard it last year. Now the official "Deep Freeze" release party is coming up Thursday, January 26th @ The Rivoli... Shawn Proulx - "Cocktail Confessions" Xtra!

"There is a growing industry buzz around young singer/producer GAVIN BRADLEY, and you can see what the fuss is about………. Kerry Doole "On The Beat" Tandem Magazine.

Put this local artist in the “rising star” category fast. His recent CD release at The Rivoli showcased a young singer/songwriter with decided commercial potential. He has made some impact as a remixer, but it his well-crafted songs and softly romantic vocals the mark him a real contender………..

Bio


Gavin Bradley is a singer/producer/songwriter hailing from Ottawa, Canada who has reinvented the love song. In a warm, deep vocal tone that blends Chet Baker with Depeche Mode, Gavin pours his heart out with honesty, beauty and emotion over a backdrop of moody piano & electro beats delivering songs that are at once original and classic. With a background in classical piano as well as a career as a remixer, Gavin writes, produces, and performs his own material, reaching out to anyone who has ever experienced the questioning and reawakening that relationships bring.

At 18 he moved to downtown Toronto to DJ and work in studios, and ended up working with a lot of great people. Along the way he did remixes for Tori Amos, Thomas Dolby and Esthero under the name Gavo scoring a Billboard Dance Hot Plate for his remix of Nelly Furtado's "I'm Like A Bird" and a Best RnB Juno for work on Jacksoul's “Sleepless” album. Most recently Gavin has also been busy collaborating on production work with renowned LA writer-producer Rick Nowels (Madonna, Dido) doing tracks for Nelly Furtado and Alex Band (The Calling). He is also collaborating with another LA writer-producer, Holly Knight (Tina Turner, Pat Benatar) on music for the 2006 World Cup Album, The Donnas and new Virgin Records recording artist Alaina Beaton. If that isn't enough Gavin has just started work on tracks for Dido, Joss Stone & Britney Spears establishing this immensely talented producer on a worldwide level.

Righteous, his house music production company with DJ Dwayne Minard also just completed collaborating with New York house singer MJ White. The second single "Love Is Love" was released on UK label Refunkt Records. Remixes of "In The Way" off of Gavin’s record "Deep Freeze" have also been released on Delecto Recordings. Both singles are currently charting on the UK/ European house charts. Other work includes collaborating with Canada's top techno DJ “Deko-Ze” for Hi- Bias Records.

Gavin Bradley’s full-length debut CD "Deep Freeze" as a singer/songwriter is the first official release on renowned producer/ artist James Bryan's imprint label UMI Entertainment. Recorded with Bryans' guidance over several sessions, James also lends his advanced musicianship & production skills to several of the tracks on the CD. The result is a magical landscape of well-crafted love songs combining atmospheric pop with jazz influences. "Deep Freeze” is the kind of CD that you could just as easily put on at a sexy dinner party as you could listen to privately on headphones.

From the uplifting dance track "In The Way", the reflective & captivating "Secret Life" to the sweet tripped out vibe of "Good Friend" “Deep Freeze” was released to rave reviews in both the mainstream & gay press. With Fab Magazine hyping Gavin as an artist with Grammy potential, and predicting that he has a potential #1 hit on his hands with “Deep Freeze” Gavin Bradley is already leaving an impressive mark on the musical landscape of 2006 and whether it’s in your living room, on the dance floor or at a live venue near you… there’s a sure bet you will be hearing a lot more from this multi- talented young artist real soon. …
