Started playing guitar at age 16.
Played in a few cover bands up to age 21 and began writing songs for first original band. Never looked back!
Have recorded a number of live studio albums, minimal press and archived.
Recorded first independent album titled ‘bare your soul’
in 2012, produced by Ray Luckhurst.
Started leaning towards blues some 15 years ago and I think I’m comfortable with that.
Held a few residencies over the years.
Have a healthy catalogue of self penned songs.
I’ve only just started allowing a fair few cover songs back into my shows.
I tend to play not so well known covers which weave through my own songs in my live sets.
I’ve been very lucky or more so grateful for so many venues allowing me to indulge in me playing my music to the public over the years.
BradKennedyMusic is purely and predominantly all about original written material with songs that can get a crowd involved.
