Bio

Fans credit Bradley James and the Roadies with the genre defying versatility of Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals, the song writing intricacy of Tom Petty and a clean, intriguing sound that is comparable to Dave Matthews. The band's multi-genre sound is an eclectic mix of rock, blues, folk and country.

Bradley James (Rhodes) and the Roadies (Rachel Beauregard and brothers Sam and Tyler Duis) is an award winning band from Northern VA. Introduced by a mutual friend, they began jamming together in the Fall of 2005. After playing a small local gig, they realized their common goals and the potential of their music. They began practicing together seriously in early 2006 and posted a couple of their songs on myspace later that year. They were shown nearly immediate interest from several music agents in Nashville; however, after considering their options, the guys decided to go their own way as they refined their sound and image and built their fan base.

A key element of the Roadies’ success and potential is their songwriting ability. A combined effort, their music is intricate yet fluid, their lyrics deep and honest. As one studio executive put it,

“[The Roadies music] draws you in as a listener. The music foundation concepts are nice, and after you get in you don’t get hammered. Nice sound and blend of interesting vocals and music – not underplayed or overplayed. Good mass appeal.”

Many of their songs sing of coming of age in Northern VA and reflect personal experience and situations. Their lyrics, while provoking, are at the same time refreshingly simple and inviting.

“I’ve documented my life as sing-alongs…So promise me\wherever we\may be\you’ll be attempting harmonies\sing it loud\the perfect crowd\come on [Virginia]\make me proud.” - Opener

Whether it be a laid back, acoustic performance or an all out rock show, the Roadies have several gigs lined up for the coming year in venues ranging from local clubs to coffee houses, private parties and colleges. They are also currently recording their first full-length album which will be released in late 2008.
