“Soak It Up”
Gecko Music Productions
From the oil rigs in Siberia to the clubs and songwriters circles of Nashville, Englishman David Bradley brings his soulful country rock ‘n’ roll to the US via his new home in Music City. After settling in with the community of singers and songwriters in Nashville, David offers his first single, “Soak It Up” just in time for summer. This infectious, mid-tempo rocker written by Bradley with Brady Seals and produced by Seals leads off his forthcoming album, a culmination of traveling the world and growing up on good American country music. Over 40 country stations, including Nashville’s XM 11, have played it out of the box. Stations can download a broadcast quality file from Play MPE, and the CD single has now shipped to radio.
Following in his father’s footsteps, he made a life for himself as an oil engineer uncovering places beyond the reaches of common imagination. Stationed for months in the forests of Siberia and on an oil rig in the middle of the Caspian Sea gave him a deep empathy for others who also found themselves far from the comforts and familiarities of home. David found himself writing about the hopes and fears that a man must confront on his journey through life.
Now that he’s a resident of Nashville, David is collaborating with some of the most notable songwriters and producers in town and his songs have garnered him a highly coveted publishing deal with Wrensong Music Publishing. David’s live shows also brought him to the attention of the AristoMedia Global Showcase who invited him to participate in their international artist showcase of tomorrow’s stars, kicking off CMA Music Fest 2009, a performance which was featured on tv program Inside Music Row.
