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?).

…and many more!
"In My Youth, I'm Getting Old..."
"Let's Go Out Tonight" is an unpretentious heartland roots rocker that would make Mellencamp or Westerberg proud, "Let's Go Out Tonight," with its undeniably infectious melody and sweet harmonies, tells the real, relatable story of two people simply trying to figure things out." - No Depression | Tara Joan
"We’ve got an in your face feel-good rock song by Bradley Wik and the Charlatans today that’ll make you yearn for classic guitar-rock songs to make a roaring comeback. If what we can expect from Wik are songs like “Lookin’ At Luckey” – he might bring the revival all by himself." - Groundsounds | Jake Craney
"For those thirsting for a fresh rock n roll sound, Bradley Wik is the answer. Raw and unpretentious, the sound harkens back to the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and the Replacements. No gimmicks, no frills. Just pure passion." - Skope News
"A Midwest boy searching for the music that once was and that could be once again, Bradley Wik is an outspoken realist and earnest romantic who sings of everyday men and women stumbling through life together." - The Daily Country
"Wise beyond his years, Bradley draws on themes of redemption. There's an unmatched vitality that he brings to his music; it doesn't have to be perfect, but it does have to be worth it. What makes music great? The stories. And the moment where someone listening says, "that's me." - Rock Era Magazine
"Bradley Wik's "Some Girls (Still Love Rock'n'Roll)" is a really excellent example of what I have controversially (apparently) called the Tragic Woman. As the song unfolds, Wik's deep empathy and understand for the character is evidently clear. The subject isn't a source of objectificationor moralizing. Whether or not this woman is real, in the song she is a complex and fully realized human. Straight male singer-songwriters of the world, take note: this is how you write a song about a woman." - Adobe and Teardrops | Rachel Cholst
"In order to write about life, first you must live it." These may have been Ernest Hemingway’s words, but they have been Bradley Wik’s lifestyle that has inspired his latest full-length album, “In My Youth, I’m Getting Old…” - Skope Magazine
