Sam Bradley Interview

For this weekend’s music feature we have an  artist whose music appeared on the Twilight Soundtrack. Sam Bradley  co-wrote the song Never Think.  Sam current lives in Vancouver and has been touring in various locations in the US and Canada.  Sam’s current touring schedule can be seen below along with his interveiw.  I also posted a video of Sam performing Never Think/Too Far Gone.  You can check out all of Sam’s videos at his myspace page which also has some great demo songs posted as well.

What are the inspirations for your lyrics and music?


Sea horses, romantic novels and a general love for myself.

(So ladies if you have any romance novel lying around send them Sam’s way =P His fanmail address can be found on his myspace page!)

How would you classify your music? Is there a genre you feel the music fits into?

I would like to attempt as many genres as possible. But currently I think I sit in the rock, folk, soul category. I am a fantastic rapper though. (Oh Really?? Would anyone else like to hear demo rap songor is it just me???)

Sam Bradley Does Benefit Concert

Sam Bradley and other performers did a benefit concert in Vancouver for the Gewa Project, an organization that according to the group’s website, “…was created in 2001 by a Tibetan-Canadian with the goal of improving the living conditions of people in rural Tibet. Gewa began its work supporting elderly people in eastern Tibet (Kham) in the Yushu Prefecture of Qinghai Province in the People’s Republic of China.”

Sam Bradley co-wrote Never Think with Robert Pattinson. Both Rob and Kristen were at the show to give their support to Sam. Read the whole story on Celebuzz.

Mike Welch is on the Sci-Fi themed CSI tonight. Check out a preview clip here.

Also a reminder to check out this great cause that Mike is supporting!

Robert Pattinson’s Music Roots Run Deep

It seems like you can’t turn around lately without hearing something else about Robert Pattinson, his taste in music, his fellow musician friends from the UK, and his music ambitions. Here’s the latest run down:

It seems that Robert gave an interview to a Czech publication where he states he likes the group Tokio Hotel, and wouldn’t mind seeing them on the soundtrack.

The LA Times ponders if Rob’s ambitions extend to Grammy or Oscar dreams.

The Examiner has dubbed Rob’s group of musician friends: Bobby Long (pictured left via EW), Marcus Foster, Sam Bradley ‘The Brit Pack”. Let Me Sign, sung by Rob in the Twilight movie was co-written by Bobby and Marcus. Rob also performs Never Think written by Sam Bradley in the Twilight movie. Entertainment Weekly just did a big article on Bobby Long who just played to a packed crowd in New York last night.

Now they certainly owe their exposure to Rob singing their material in a blockbuster movie, but the person who was actually instrumental in getting this all to happen in the first place was the seldom mentioned Nikki Reed. If Nikki hadn’t shown Catherine Hardwicke Rob’s music, and Catherine hadn’t insisted that it be put on the soundtrack, probably none of this new found exposure would be happening to the degree it is.

Twilight Music Happenings

This upcoming week has a lot of Twilight music happenings. Check out the list below and if the shows are close to you I highly suggest checking out some of these amazing musicians.

Bobby Long will be arriving in the states for his first tour.  He will be kicking it off in NYC on Monday 4/13 at the Lakeside Lounge and then on Tuesday 4/14 at Arlene’s Grocery.

You should definitely stop by and make Bobby feel welcome.  I’ll be there with NoMoreMarbles.  Hope to see all of you there too!  Something of note both of these shows are 21+.

For all you Canadian fans Sam Bradley will be performing in Toronto on 4/16 at The Drake Hotel (19+ show) and 4/17 at The Gibson Showroom which is an all ages.   show.   US fans do not fear Sam will be playing a show with Bobby in Nashville at the Lindsley Bar and Grill on 4/22 and 4/23.

And last but certainly not least the Twilight Music Girls will be performing a 18+ show in LA at Whiskey A Go Go.  The show will also feature Bobby Long (are we sensing a theme here?) I have seen the girls perform live and they are not to be missed. You can pre-order tickets for the event on the TMG myspace page. I also suggest checking out their latest contest.  Win an Ashley Greene autographed Special 2 disc DVD. Check out all the details here.

Hope to see some of you at the show on Monday or Tuesday

Be My Escape

Sam Bradley: Up Close and Personal

Sam Bradley is one of Robert Pattinson’s friends and musical mentors. Sam is often described as “the intellectual one” who really has a classical influence to his craft. Sam wrote Never Think that is performed by Rob in the Twilight movie.

The Examiner sat down with Sam and asked him about his future plans and if there might be a shot for him in New Moon. He and Rob are also collaborating:

“As far as his up-coming album goes, there is no official release date, but what we can know, says Sam, is that “well, there are some songs that I have redone, like ‘Too Far Gone.’” Also, the album will feature guest writers such as Robert Pattinson (for his co-authorship of ‘Too Far Gone’) and Sam’s mother, whose song, Sam says, “she wrote with a few other people in England.”

Kristen Stewart Celebrates With the Cast

It seems like Kristen had a much better time at her birthday this year than last year. Last year she got a cake and was treated to a late night filming since she was no longer a minor, she could now work late nights and extended hours.

This year, Kristen and cast members celebrated at Chill Winston, whose site at least has non-annoying and quick-loading flash if you want to check out their menu.

The cast waved to passers-by and signed a few authographs. Even though he’s unidentified in the photo, we’d swear that it’s Sam Bradley in the backseat of rob’s Taxi. Sam’s playing a bunch of gigs in the Vancouver area.

Music As Important As Ever For Robert Pattinson

Rob has said more than once in interviews how much music means to him. He’s even talked jokingly about music being a back-up plan if acting didn’t work out.

According to People magazine, Rob recent stopped by the after party of the Juno Awards, Canada’s equivalent to the Grammy Awards, that took place at Vancouver’s Velvet Room inside the Opus Hotel.

Rob’s also been a huge supporter of his friends’, Sam Bradley and Bobby Long, musical careers. Both are currently touring the US and Canada. In fact some fans ran into Rob and Sam the other night. If you want to catch Sam in a live performance, he is slated to appear at in the near future in Vancouver. See Sam’s MySpace for details.

Twilight Music News

Rob Pattinson’s buddies Bobby Long and Sam Bradley who have jammed with Rob at various clubs in the UK are both tying to expand to a wider audience. Who knows, maybe even the New Moon Soundtrack?

Sam, co-author of Never Think, gave an interview to The Examiner. Sam also has a couple of upcoming club dates in the US and Canada.

Bobby’s Left To Lie is now on ITunes, and he’s got a packed schedule in clubs across America.
