RailgunRVA | SoftRoar

“The drums I proudly endorse AND play... It was love at first sight, the concept of easily tuning, bending the tone, and playing the drums to the key signature was something I had to get my hands on as soon as possible. Even first impressions: the drums are musical, eye-catching, gorgeous, well-crafted by its designed; I can tell a lot of thought was put into creating this piece of art. Muah.”

Bradley is a talented up-and-coming drummer with a strong background in performance and recording. He has a passion for lifelong learning and continued creativity in drumming. Bradley was first introduced to drums by his cousin and other drummers at his grandparent’s church at the age of 1. A year later, he received his first set of drums, and at age 4, Bradley began taking private lessons from a variety of professional drummers. Bradley spent the rest of his middle- and high-school years performing in live festivals, concerts, churches, and more. He successfully landed numerous audition-based opportunities, such as All District, Drumline, Jazz Band, Show Choirs (both Girls and Mix), Broadway, etc.

With such an early start to his career, Bradley has become an accomplished drummer with a keen ear for rhythm and an in-depth understanding of musicality. Through his education and experiences, Bradley has been exposed to and is comfortable playing many different genres of music including Rock, Punk, Progressive, Pop, Funk, R&B, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Fusion, Swing, Blues, Country, Latin, Bossa Nova, Afro Cuban, Reggae, and Symphonic. He takes to any new project with a big smile! With commitment, passion, and openness to unlimited possibilities, Bradley is always on the hunt for the next challenge, still eager to learn something new in this massive, musical world.

Currently, Bradley is starting an educational project (details to come!), as well as drumming for his current bands: SoftRoar, an electronic dance group, and RailgunRVA, a Punk Funk trio. Both groups proudly hail from Richmond, Virginia. Bradley also does professional studio recording for himself and clientele, as well as creates independent works for artists, musicians, and producers.
