After 6 years fronting the Denver rock band ‘The Bad Directions’, Bradley Weaver has returned to his singer/songwriter roots. Whether performing solo/acoustic, or with his rhythm section as, ‘The Bradley Weaver System’, Bradley has turned down the volume & returned to his folk/Americana sound.
Bradley was born and raised in rural Pennsylvania, and as a young songwriter, was influenced by artists such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Eddie Vedder, Steve Earle, and Glen Phillips. In 1999, Bradley moved to Denver, CO and the Rocky Mountain culture both broadened and fueled his songwriting. Bradley’s rural upbringing & diverse influences are represented in his songwriting as he writes in many genres including folk, pop, rock, alt-country, and even children’s music.
As a performer, with his percussive picking style & a voice that has drawn comparisons to everyone from Neil Finn to Ed Kowalczyk to Bret Michaels, Bradley can connect with audiences of any size.
Bradley currently has several side projects. He has assumed lap steel duties for country music artist John Croghan. Inspired by his niece, he has written a collection of children’s music titled ‘Songs for Shirley (& other children)’. He also occasionally reprises his roles as 'Billy Joe' in the 'Green Day' tribute band 'American Idiots' & as ‘Bret Michaels’ in the 'Poison' tribute band 'Fallen Angel'.
