Love Lost Love Found
Bradley is a native of Cape Cod, where he began his musical career as a drummer. He is a self-taught composer and songwriter, originating when his father began giving him piano lessons at the age of 7. He felt a need to grow musically, so he taught himself drums 5 years later and won awards during his high school years. By the end of high school, he started playing guitar and composed his first song. Bradley is no stranger to the scene. His talent and reputation has allowed him to work with top recording musicians including Gregg Bissonette (James Taylor, Toto, Duran Duran, Santana), Johnny Friday (Natalie Cole), Ross Bolton (Al Jarreau), and Pathik Desai (Kelly Clarkson) to name a few. Most recently he had the opportunity to play drums for grammy winning songwriter, Tim Fagan, who co-wrote the songs, Deeper (John Mayer), and Lucky (Jason Mraz). As a performer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist Rapo has earned awards and honorable mentions from The World Animation Celebration at the Pasadena Civic Center (Most Groovy), Songwriters Guild of America, VH1 Save the Music, and the 2001 John Lennon Songwriting Contest (a nationwide contest).
