Just one of the amazing testimonials Brad has been given..
“Armed with an acoustic guitar, easy smile and strong vocals, Brad takes a familiar musical genre and brings a style of his own. This is someone who is clearly growing as a songwriter, from tender, melodious songs with lyrics that are at once personal and relatable, to more up-beat songs with a real punch of pop folk power. Great interaction with the audience, really got the crowd growing. As someone who has toured the States and played at far more prestigious venues, we were honoured to have him play for us.” – Abigail Sharp, Nottingham City Council

Brad was truly amazing at my 60th birthday bash! His repertoire of songs perfectly matched the party spirit. His two set performance was seamless and faultless. Not only was his performance outstanding, he was a really affable charming young man with a huge talent. I really lucked out having Brad play for us. I’d definitely recommend him for your party or function. Simply excellent. Thank you Brad!! Tony C

Booked Brad to perform at my house for my Husbands 50th Birthday. He is an extremely talented performer, very professional, got on great with the crowd and didn't mind about the small amount of space he had to work in! I have received so many comments on how good Brad was so thank you so much!!! Don't hesitate to book Brad as you wont regret it! x

We owe so much to Brad for making our evening wedding reception so brilliant! The live sets he performed were fantastic and definitely got our guests in the mood for dancing the night away as he moved into his DJ set. I love how well Brad read the crowd and knew exactly what to play to make sure everyone was having a great time. Throughout planning our wedding Brad was so professional and great at communicating, making us feel at ease and excited for our wedding. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with Brad for your event - we really can’t recommend him enough.
