Brad Wilson has been dishing out the Blues to audiences and they come back for more. This California guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter has been known to perform over 100 shows a year. His style brings forth not only the Blues, but also Americana, Folk, Roots Music, Soul, and Rock.
Brad’s style of the Blues is a perfect match for indoor or outdoor festivals, intimate parties, large events, clubs, and casinos. The band’s soulful Americana sound has been a hit at wineries and fundraisers all over the west coast. He’s definitely not a blues traditionalist, nor does he pretend to be. He labels his music “Blues Rock,” with equal emphasis on both styles.
No stranger to the World of Hard Rock and hard knocks, this former Redwood City resident has played in his own rock bands in San Francisco and in Los Angeles. Brad is an ace guitarist who is not shy about honoring such influences as B.B. King, Eric Clapton, and Gary Moore in his own six-string approach. He is a solid songwriter, one who draws inspiration from country music icons like Hank Williams Jr. and pop- country masters such as Jimmy Buffett.
The release of over 13 albums has Brad Wilson considered to be an ambassador for Blues Rock around the World. His recent album, Blues Magic, showcases his talent as a skilled songwriter. Featuring original bluesy rock tunes, the album has a stellar line up of musicians and world class production from Grammy Award-winning engineer Francis Buckley and legendary engineer Robert M. Biles.
Professional and exact in every detail, Brad Wilson will fill your venue with great Blues and Rock music. The band’s soulful sound will fill the air and gets the audience dancing and swaying. This band is perfect for casino entertainment and large concert halls.
I want a new generation of ax men (and women) who are every bit as sharp as Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera and Concrete Blonde’s James Mankey, to name just three of my favorites… Wilson is indeed one of those guys.Jim Harrington (San Jose Mercury News)

Brad Wilson exemplifies what’s riding the crest of the current “Blues Wave”: Passionate vocals, a dynamic stage presence, and pointed lyrics that get to the heart and to the heart of the matter. Electric guitar blues fans alike will be well satisfied by Wilson’s music.ToneQuest Report
In my opinion, Brad Wilson’s Blues Magic is too damn good to ignore. It’s riff laden, hard driving, and high-spirited! The songs are consistent throughout. From the point of view of a longtime guitarist, one who loves the lead laden, soulful blues/rock, the whole album is a breath of fresh air. Brad’s a guitarist to take into account.
