Bradford Loomis w/ Alex Ashley
Bravery and the Bell, the first solo album from Bradford Loomis of The Banner Days since 2013, releases March 24th amidst a series of tours across the United States and Canada.
Upon learning recently that his father was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimers disease, Bradford starting laying the ground work for this new project. Bravery and the Bell is about legacy, both the lineage we are born into and that which we pass on. Whether burdened or buoyed by our generational inheritance, this album confronts the drudgery of simply surviving and sounds a call to stand up to the things that stand in the way of us truly passionately pursuing that which we were made to be.
With swelling crescendos, soulful intensity, and the combination of grit and blue-eyed soul Bradfords new album calls to mind Chris Stapleton and Marc Broussard.
Having supported artists like Ben Gibbard, Jamestown Revival, Joseph, Penny and Sparrow, Courtney Marie Andrews, Tyler Hilton and Marc Broussard, Bradford is eager to hit the road. The Lets Be Brave tour, with legs throughout 2017, celebrates this new album with stops all across the United States. Every show promises soulful performances wrapped around stories from the heart making a powerfully vulnerable experience.
A rare, triple-threat singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, Alex Ashley creates an electrifying amalgam of insightful lyrics, profound storytelling, sultry, smoky vocals and razor-sharp guitar playing that brings his songs to life with nostalgic effervescence.
At just 27 years old, Ashley has been described as that of a well-seasoned musician with years of traveling [and playing] every juke joint on the road If you could roll Jackson Browne, Vince Gill and Eric Clapton into one guy and make him thirty years younger, that would be him."
Joined by Jayleigh Ann & The Lost Boys, aspiring young singer/songwriters who perform originals and covers of songs from multiple genres while adding their unique style.
