Resume

Hello--my name is Tim Bradford. I'm a problem solver and a strong writer with a background in communications, economics and event management.

My main focus is music. I'm a touring singer/songwriter who most often performs with my phenomenal roots-country band. In early 2015 I will be releasing my debut full-length album "Drinking Alone" featuring 10 original songs and great performances by John Showman (fiddle), Will Meadows (guitar/mandolin) and Burke Carroll (steel guitar) among others.

I'm currently focused on booking shows for 2015 and building new lasting relationships with people who care about music and community. As a writer, entertainer and versatile performer, I'm also happy playing solo and in old-time/bluegrass formats with the continual goal of creating connection and bringing people together through music.
