About Me

For as long as he could sit up on his own, Bradley has loved to play the piano!                

His passion for Blues/Jazz/Classic Rock/Boogie/Classical Music and the ability to create his own music from little more than a thought can only be attributed to the possibility that Bradley is indeed an “Old Soul”.  

He plays from his heart and brings his emotions to life through the keys.  In addition to the piano, Bradley also performs on the Tenor Saxophone, Ukelele, Guitar, Harmonica, Vocals and is also learning the Accordian.

Bradley cut his first CD  that was released in April, 2014 at the age of 11. Titled “Bermuda Love”, it is named after one of his favorite places on Earth, bringing with it a range of Jazz and Blues styles that reflect the spirit of the beautiful island and captivate the imagination.  

Also at the age of 11, Bradley was selected as the youngest Official Solo Musician/Performer at Faneuil Hall in Boston, MA where he performs for thousands of people each week.  To see his performance schedule click here.
