Singer / Songwriter

Jeff Bradley plays electric guitar and sings outlaw country with a seasoned, smokey voice that pulls from the rich diversity of outsider singer-songwriters.

Born in a three-room shotgun house near the salty streams of Mud Lick, Kentucky, the son of sharecroppers, Jeff Bradley grew up riding the rails from town to town in search of the meaning of life. After finding a neglected old guitar someone left at a laundromat, Jeff sat down and started playing to the rhythm of a washing machine's spin cycle, gathering a crowd of interested onlookers in the process.

It was then that he realized he could be a professional entertainer, all he needed was a guitar, a pair of Ray-Bans, and a fresh pack of smokes.

Years and years on the road with various incarnations of innumerable bands fine-tuned Jeff's guitar playing and sensibilities. He is often called to fill in as a hired gun for regional country bands in search of that twangy Telecaster sound.

Setting out on his own now, Jeff brings to the stage a wealth of songs from the very best twang masters of yesterday and today: Cash, Waylon, Willie, Steve Earle, Uncle Tupelo, The Bottle Rockets, Robbie Fulks, and more.
