Ry Bradley’s singing and performing ability has endeared him to a lot of fans but his guitar playing has led him around the world…from Hawaiian honkytonks, rowdy military clubs, California fairs and festivals, Texas dance halls, to Music City “guitar pulls” and showcases. Ry underplays that he “barely made it out alive from some of those gigs”. Ry grew up in Hawaii. While studying guitar at the University of California he realized that he had been very blessed: he had been introduced to so many musical cultures, they each helped him to develop his unique style. Ry’s interest in music has taken him from studying flamenco guitar in Spain, playing blues in Argentina, to learning folk songs from native fishermen in Cuba. “I’m a huge Vince Gill, Carl Perkins, and Brad Paisley fan, but I also love B. B. King, Keb Mo’, and the Rolling Stones.” Although times have been hard and sometimes dangerous, nothing has shaken him away from his love of writing, singing, playing and entertaining on stage.
