BIO:

Bradley has played 300+ shows over the years all across America. From legendary New York City venues like Cafe Wha? and the Sidewalk Cafe all the way to Portland, Oregon's venerable Doug Fir and Seattle's Triple Door Theater. Whether solo, with his wife/singing partner Brianne Wik or with a full band, Bradley puts on high energy, yet emotional, live performances.

With the recent release of Bradley's second full-length album (with the Thin Lizzy inspired title "In My Youth, I'm Getting Old...") and accompanying singles/music videos, he built upon the success and positive reception of his debut album "Burn What You Can, Bury the Rest..." Drawing comparisons to his greatest influences like Springsteen, Ryan Adams and the Replacements, Bradley has built a name for himself through his songwriting, performances, and his punctuality (Spinal Tap, anyone?).
