CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Katie Bradley

Few artists have traveled so far, and so quickly, after releasing a self-released album, and Katie Bradley is increasingly regarded as one of the most impressive stories to emerge on The British Blues music scene. Blessed with a truly expressive, exceptional voice and dynamic blues-harp playing, Katie Bradley's music is a unique and contemporary take on the classic sounds of Blues, Gospel and Soul; all underpinned by a simply compelling and a dynamic range of heart felt songs of rare emotion. After releasing "She's Ready" independently in October 2012, an album which featured two original songs "I Hear The River" and "Be Careful With my baby", the reaction to the record has been amazing, with a nomination in The British Blues Awards 2013 for her song 'I Hear The River', and worldwide critical acclaim from the Blues world in International Blues Magazines with reviews and interviews that picked up on her notability. In June 2013 Katie received a phone call from Paul Jones "The Blues Band" who directly requested a copy to play on his Premier Blues show on BBC Radio Two. The airplay resulted in a No.7 entry on the i-tunes Blues Charts shoulder to shoulder with Festival favourite Seasick Steve and Blues Master Son House. Katie was the only British name in the top 10 also the only female artist. The British Blues Awards were announced at the end of August 2013 and Katie made the final, with the public vote bringing her nomination runner up with Oli Brown to multi award winning Blues Giant Ian Siegal. Katie has spent most of career travelling, writing and collaborating with musicians across the globe earning her place as one of Britain's most accomplished Blues Vocalists. In 2012 Katie teamed together with guitarist and composer Dudley Ross, and cut her début blues album with the pick of the best blues musicians available including: Dudley Ross – guitar (Gary Moore, Imelda May), Paul Jobson – keys and vocals (Chaka Khan, Ben E king), Joe Sam (Cut The Funk, Noel McCalla), and multi award winning Drummer Sam Kelly. Katie has earned further recognition with performances and support for International artists such as Hamish Stuart, Dana Gillespie and Suzanne Vega which displays Katie's appeal and resonance.
