Michael Bradford is a multi-platinum producer and songwriter, having produced work for a wildly diverse group of artists, including pop (Anita Baker, Ben Folds, Madonna), (Deep Purple, Stevie Nicks), Country (Travis Tritt, John Mellencamp), Underground (Butthole Surfers, Mindless Self-Indulgence), Hip-Hop (Run-DMC, Kid Rock) and Dance (AV Super Sunshine, Pure Sugar, Liz Primo). Michael’s songwriting catalog includes several hits that span multiple genres.
A multi-instrumentalist, Michael plays guitar, bass, cello, drums and keyboards, and he is known for his large analog synthesizer collection. Always in search of a new sound, Michael combines instruments, amps and effects, along with varying acoustical spaces, to create new sounds and textures.
A recording artist in his own right, Michael Bradford released his first solo album “The Long Night” in 2014. He is currently preparing the follow up, a unique project that combines the film music of the legendary compose Bernard Herrmann with downtempo and trip-hop beats. Michael’s music has been described by American Songwriter Magazine’s Paul Zollo as “Funk Noir”.
Michael Bradford still makes time for live performance, and is currently dividing his time between two legendary artists: Richie Sambora’s new band RSO (Richie Sambora & Orianthi) and Dave Stewart (Eurythmics).
Spending time in his personal recording studio, and then time on the road playing for thousands of people each night – it’s the best of both worlds.
