Support from James Bradley. The father of 4 is an experienced artist on the local cover scene and recently quit a management role in retail to pursue his dream. The EP ‘Better Place’ cites influences including The Jam, Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor and Counting Crows and gives us a glimpse of the range of songs we should expect in the future.

Regular radio play on Q Radio as well as a recent glowing review in HotPress Magazine shows Bradley’s potential.
