Folk as fuck. New music all the time.

Bio:
Singer/songwriter Bradley Palermo has fronted the bands The Sudden Passion and Femme Fatality for the past 15 years. His solo work is equal parts indie folk and Americana. A fan at a recent show described his sound as 'Hank 3 meets Bright Eyes,' which is right on the money with his strongest influences. Originally from St. Louis, MO, Bradley is currently based in Los Angeles.

Lie in the Sound blog wrote, 'I usually fall for distinctive vocals.... Bradley Palermo's voice got my heart within seconds.' His lyrics are no less heartbreaking than his vocals--autobiographical, alcohol-soaked tales of bar fights, arrest warrants, and failing at love. It's what you might expect from a guy who has spent the majority of his life playing smoke-filled dive bars across the country. He manages to put a poetic spin on even the lowliest events. As Incognito Magazine put it, Bradley 'shows some wordplay that would make Bob Dylan proud.'

As The Sudden Passion, he released two full-length albums (one on vinyl), an EP, a few singles, and a collection of demos. From time to time his music appears in unlikely places such as NBC's The Voice, The CW's 90210, and UFC's Ultimate Insider. Lately Bradley has focused on his solo work, performing live as a one-man show with his guitar, harmonicas, and a ukulele.

Bradley is currently recording new music and performing shows in Southern California. Beginning in spring 2017, he will be releasing a series of monthly singles with lyric videos. All of his solo music and The Sudden Passion releases are available free (or pay what you can) from his website bradleypalermo.com
