ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Texas is famous for its eclectic, blues-based rock-n-roll, and Tommie Lee Bradley is one of its most notable exports. She’s taken her critically acclaimed music to Japan, with Soul Shock, to Canada, with Jean-Pierre Ferland and Ginnette Reno, and throughout the United States, both as a headliner and with acts such as Jim Messina. She’s a stellar songwriter with tightly crafted, highly visual lyrics. Her vocals are those of a soul drenched Southern song stylist, able to make any song her own, no matter who composed the material.
As a solo artist, she’s recorded for Columbia (with Janis Joplin’s producer Paul Rothchild at the studio helm) and PolyDor Records, and her big, husky vocals have been heard on albums by artists such as REO Speedwagon and Harry Chapin, and demos for Joe Sample and Will Jennings. Her big-screen credits include lead and background vocals (under the musical direction of Grammy and Oscar winner Johnny Mandel) on Stayin’ Alive,” starring John Travolta, directed by Sylvester Stallone; “Lookin’ To Get Out,” starring Ann-Margaret and Jon Voight; “Never Too Young To Die, “ starring John Stamos, Vanity, and Gene Simmons; and under Tony Berg’s direction on Robert Altman’s “A Perfect Couple,” starring Paul Dooley (Grace Under Fire) and Ted Neely (Jesus Christ Superstar.) Altman was so impressed with her, he also cast her in a featured role in the film.
The Houston Native began singing as a child, rapidly moving from soulful country and gospel to blues, jazz, and rock. It didn’t take long until name acts such as REO Speedwagon were aware of her talent and approached her about singing on recording projects. She went on to not only becoming an acclaimed singing star, but an actress as well. She was featured in American Musical Theatre’s productions of “A Little Night Music,” “The Taffetas,” and “Beehive, The Sixties Musical.” Her starring role in “Always Patsy Cline” won coast-to-coast critical raves. “The show’s strongest element is Bradley’s singing,” wrote Houston Chronicle reviewer Everett Evans.

WOW!
Tommie Lee Bradley has one of the most phenomenal voices I have ever heard and she knows how to use it. On top of her incredible vocal range and texture, she is a masterful songwriter and wordsmith. The CD takes us through a delicious variety of Blues, Jazz, Rock and Funk. She can write and do it all. Tommie Lee and the fabulous musicians she assembled for this CD, offer more proof of the talent that abounds in Houston, Texas. Welcome to CDBaby, baby!

Blues Bunny

A treasure trove of unexpected delights.
Diverse does not even begin to come close to doing justice to the range of styles on offer here. Some particularly fine soul and blues numbers standout. In particular the opening track “Soul Soup” is a superb Stax-like soul number; and “Sometimes You Just Gotta Hurt” is a great piece of blues rock. There is also a wonderful laid back version of “Walkin’ After Midnight”, with a great double bass sound as the foundation. On top of that there is a fine cover of the Rolling Stones “Ruby Tuesday”, and the somewhat funky sounding “Hurricane Sam”.
