Tommie Lee Bradley sings an eclectic mix of blues based rock and roll, Texas Blues.
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.
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 praise. “The show’s strongest element is Bradley’s singing,” wrote Houston Chronicle reviewer Everett Evans.
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 recordings by artists including Harry Chapin, Joe Sample and Will Jennings. Her big-screen credits include lead and background vocals 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.
