How Aiden Bradley gave a platform to emerging Brisbane artists

Aiden Bradley

For those who aren’t across your music, how would you describe Aiden Bradley in under 40 words?

I’m just a guy who writes a lot of songs about stuff that’s happened to me. 

Your new EP, Low-Key/High Strung, aims to spotlight underrepresented talents coming out of the Brisbane music scene. What’s the inspiration behind the record?

Honestly, I just wanted to make a record with my friends. Everyone on the record is a good friend of mine, they’re all people I hang out with and they just happen to be some of my favourite musicians. 

How would you describe your sound and how did you come to it?

I like to think that I make a kind of pop music that seems like it was made by a regular person. I try to be really authentic in the music that I write and in the way I perform it.

Are there any bands or musicians that stand out as particular influences for you?

I always loved the music of Frightened Rabbit, Foy Vance and The Whitlams. When I was 13 or so, I almost exclusively listened to Jeff Buckley and I was so mesmerised by what he could do with just himself, a guitar and a load of reverb.

What’s next for Aiden Bradley?

Because the scheduling for the record was a nightmare, it’s taken me a year or so to make. In that time, I’ve written a lot of stuff and I can’t wait to start demoing out some new tracks for 2020. 

Aiden Bradley’s new EP, Low-Key/High Strung, is out now. Listen to the album via streaming services and keep with Bradley via Facebook.
