When it comes to the discovery of Bradly Tucker , it is a safe bet to say we have his father to thank. At the age of six, growing up in Bonnyville Alberta, Bradly's father decided to enroll the young boy in five string banjo lessons. The only condition Bradly's father placed on the instructor, is that his son must enjoy playing the music. A philosophy that has stuck with the artist to this day. Bradly was exposed to many instruments during his young musical journey; the banjo, the fiddle and the mandolin. No surprise that the music runs deep in his veins. He was lucky to grow up with a mom who played fiddle and his dad, the guitar. It was not until junior high that he discovered what would be his true musical love, the electric guitar. He immediately started playing it and had fun getting to know the ins and outs of the instrument. In his mid twenties Bradly started entering various competitions. He found himself losing out to those singing more contemporary and fluffy songs. This was not the music he was drawn to. The true classics of artists such as Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings were the ones that called to Bradly. He truly is a working man, who works for the love of the music. Musical influences for him have always been the songs embedded with harmonies, singing about real people, by real people. "Playing at all the various venues is the great part of this business. Whether it is laughing and sharing stories behind songs for five people at a coffee shop or playing for 1500 at a fancy gala, entertaining the crowd till late into the night" Having opened for the likes of Tim Hus, Sean Hogan and Jason McCoy, the desire to get out there and share his music just keeps growing with every strum of his guitar. In the spring Bradly's debut album will be released. It's an exciting new adventure for him. Once you get to know Bradly Tucker you will not be surprised to find out there is much more to this fun loving, hardworking, muskeg playing, family music man than meets the eye. Causes such as the Stollery Children's Hospital and sadly the Alberta Cancer Foundation are two causes that are close to his heart.
