Willie Bradley – It’s On Now

Willie Bradley is a graduate of South Carolina State University, where he earned his BS Degree in Music Education and Performance.

Willie’s stage presence includes performances with legends including Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry, Frank Foster, Max Roach, Betty Carter, Gerald Albright, Walter Beasley, Alex Bugnon, Ronnie Laws, Hiroshima and Marion Meadows.

Bold, yet simultaneously charming; edgy, yet at the same time beautiful; these seemingly opposing adjectives might well-describe the music of artist/trumpeter Willie Bradley, but also fittingly tell about the man! Willie Bradley’s music brings together many varied styles, and takes Smooth Jazz to a whole new level.

His new single “It’s On Now” is Willie’s strongest melody, and together with Ragan Whiteside’s contribution on flute a killer song.
