Ry Bradley
free show!



Bradley’s singing and performing ability has endeared him to a lot of

fans but his guitar playing has led him around the world…from Hawaiian

honkytonks, rowdy military clubs, California fairs and festivals, Texas

dance halls, to Music City “guitar pulls” and showcases. Ry underplays

that he “barely made it out alive from some of those gigs”.

Ry grew up in Hawaii. While studying guitar at the University of

California he realized that he had been very blessed: he had been

introduced to so many musical cultures, they each helped him to develop

his unique style. Ry’s interest in music has taken him from studying

flamenco guitar in Spain, playing blues in Argentina, to learning folk

songs from native fishermen in Cuba. “I’m a huge Vince Gill, Carl

Perkins, and Brad Paisley fan, but I also love B. B. King, Keb Mo’, and

the Rolling Stones.”

Even though he was the lead guitarist for touring bands, Ry now

fronts his own very popular group based out of Southern California. Life

on the road with a band in a van is tough. “We slept on the floor on an

Indian reservation once, and were told stories of skin walkers and

spirits that can help you or hurt you”. Those spirits later came to his

aid when he and his band almost died on an icy Colorado highway.

Although times have been hard and sometimes dangerous, nothing has

shaken him away from his love of writing, singing, playing and

entertaining on stage.
