David Bradley’s distinctive soulful sound and undeniable English charm are adding a unique flavor to the world of country music.
An established resident of Nashville, David hails from the town of Sunderland, in Northern England, where he spent the majority of his youth. David’s father, an oil engineer, regularly brought home American country music tapes from his frequent trips to Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Dubai - music by artists such as Kenny Rogers, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. David’s unique sound, however, was cultivated from experiences working on oil rigs all over the world.
For several years, David has been collaborating with some of the most notable and respected songwriters, producers and executives in the music industry. He consistently performs nationwide with a full band, is routinely asked to host events and can be seen frequenting the renowned songwriter rounds of Nashville, TN. His shows at the Bluebird Café are known to sell out in minutes and his infectious, high energy live shows have attracted the attention of the AristoMedia Group who have invited him to play numerous venerable events such as the “Artist Showcase of Tomorrow’s Stars,” which kicked off the CMA Music Fest in 2009 and 2010.
“David Bradley brought the showmanship for his closing set, working the crowd and the ladies, in particular. Maybe it’s because he’s been living in Nashville for a while, but this pleasant fellow from the U.K. really came across with confidence on stage – he clearly knew how to deliver an energetic set without seeming too contrived. This is a guy to keep an eye on”. - The AristoMedia Blog
David finished his latest album, Movin’ On, in 2010 with the experienced direction of singer/songwriter/producer, Brady Seals (Little Texas, Hot Apple Pie.) The first single release, “Soak It Up” was a successful, bright summertime hit thanks to radio and fan support.
The second single, “Hard Time Movin’ On,” a heart-wrenching ballad with backing vocals provided by Rodney Crowell and written by legendary songwriters Rivers Rutherford and Gordie Sampson dominated the country charts. The music video for the song, directed by the award-winning Steven Goldmann, was quickly picked up by CMT, GAC and numerous other music video outlets.
David continues his string of successful singles with a witty, playful tune called “If You Can’t Make Money,” also written by a superstar team that includes writers Brad Paisley, Bill Anderson and Jon Randall.
David Bradley’s career speaks for itself: he is on the fast track with no indication of slowing down. This Brit is taking the industry by storm with his rockin’ brand of country music.
