Michael Bradford


History: Originally from Motown, "Detroit" Mike Bradford has made very fast strides since coming to L.A. A quadruple-threat, Michael plays bass, guitar, drums and keyboards, and is an international re-mixer of songs for artists in the U.K., Japan and Malaysia.

Since the second half of 1999, Michael has been working with Kid Rock as his engineer-programmer. Building a unique "Rolling Studio" in the back lounge of a tour bus, they have been able to produce new music for a variety of projects, including Run-DMC and Tommy Lee's Methods of Mayhem.

In the field of engineering, Mike recently worked on the New Radicals album, "Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too", demonstrating his skills with both analog tape and Pro Tools-style engineering, editing and treatments. Michael is a long-time pioneer in the use of ProTools in many unique applications and environments.
As a re-mixer and programmer, Michael has worked on tracks for fellow Detroiters Wayne Kramer (Epitaph) and Kid Rock (Lava), mainstream artists like Brownstone and Spice Girls, and underground artists like Mankind Liberation Front (RCA), Flak (Roadrunner) and Neneh Cherry (Virgin). Mike's knowledge of various musical styles comes from his diverse musical background as a musician and engineer for everyone from Anita Baker to New Radicals and the legendary reggae group, the Heptones.
In the film area, Michael has completed music with Terence Trent D'arby/Hans Zimmer and Paul Buckmaster, including work on "The Fan", "Most Wanted" and "Murder in Mind", using his abilities as a synthesist, sound designer and rhythm programmer to enhance traditional orchestration. His latest film projects include writing original music for "Mean Streak" (Paramount/Showtime) and the new Will Smith Picture, "Wild Wild West", featuring a song that he co-wrote and co-produced for Latin artist Valeria (Interscope).

The first single from this project "Expansions/What's Goin' On" was released this winter on King Street Sounds. Michael is putting the finishing touches on UNCLE KRACKER's forthcoming album for Lava/Atlantic, which he co-wrote, produced and mixed. He just returned from the UK, where he saw DEEP PURPLE play an amazing set and is now going to co-write material with them for their next album. Nice. Meanwhile, his production of the 2 SKINNEE J's "Grown Up" scored 10 adds (R&R) at Alternative last week. It's backed up with an Andy Dick
directed video and the album drops 3/19. Uncle Kracker's single "In A Little While" scored 54 adds Aug 14, making it the Most Added belle of the ball at Pop and CHR. And the video was Added at VH1. That means you will soon see Uncle Kracker on Letterman, Regis & Kelly, Carson Daly, Jay Leno and Top Of The Pops. The presence of the beastly bass brilliance that is Michael Bradford will be prowling the stage for these performances and keep your eyes peeled for him in the video too.
