Bradlee Dean


Hard, funky, loud, and fast seems to be the rule among the young today and it is the uniqueness of Bradlee's style that just happens to be the key that fits this lock.

Born in South Dakota (of all places), his musical influences range from Metal Church, Jane’s Addiction, TNT to The Grand Master Flash and The Furious Five.

At a young age, Bradlee always had a huge desire to play the drums and after working at a local gas station for a year he saved his money to purchase a drum kit. A dream realized - the rest is history! Touring with bands from Louisiana to Colorado, from Florida to Minnesota and from Virginia to North and South Dakota, Bradlee has pretty much rocked this nation. Totaling 35 states.

Having recorded with members from "Prince" studio player (Charles Hayes bass guitar), "Balance of Power" (Lead singer Lance King) to recording countless tracks with bigger name producer (Brian Bart- American Head charge, Night Ranger-Kelly Keagy, Brad Gillis, Molly Hatchet, Bad Finger etc...) Bradlee has been there and done that.

Education - Gordy Knudtson with the Steve Miller band. The majority of playing experience, self taught
