Inspired by the musical legacies of Van Morrison, Boz Scaggs and Billy Joel, award winning piano man ‘Bradley John’ has come to bring back the sound of the 70’s!
Armed with his own individual sound ‘Bradley McCaw and his Band' fuse American blues, gospel and rock n roll music to create something truly unique and contemporary.
‘I grew up listening to most of the music that was popular in Australia in the 90’s. But It wasn’t till I heard Billy Joel that I begun to fall into something much deeper… I realised that If I was ever going to make something unique I would need to be inspired by the source… that was when I started studying blues and gospel music.’ Bradley 2016
Already having performed alongside the likes of Kate Cebrano, Bernard Fanning, Molly Ringwald, Mary Wilson, Pete Murray, Barb Jungr, and more, his first Independent self titled record is scheduled for release in early 2017.
The project has been lead by producer and guitarist ‘Louie Shelton’ (Monkeys, Jackson 5, Lionel Ritchie, Whitney Houston, Seals and Crofts, John Lennon, Marvin Gaye to name a few!) and also features the playing of one Jose McLaughlin (Jerry and the pacemakers, Peter Allen).
Festival appearances include:
Gympie Music Muster, Crossbows Festival, Noosa Jazz Festival, Centenary Rocks Festival, Racecourse Rd Carnival, Eat Street Markets, and The Straddie Stomp, to name a few. In 2010, Mine, a song he co-wrote, was a finalist in the 'Music Oz Awards.'
