Kate Bradley – ‘Gold Body’
Hey guys! Do you remember back in ’07 when US Billboard Magazine named Brisbane as one of the top five unlikely hotspots for new, original music? Do ya? Well, they did and they also picked singer-songwriter Kate Bradley as an up-and-coming artist to watch.
Her songs are strong, her live performances are great, but both Bradley’s music and personal appearance strongly resemble “Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea” era PJ Harvey. That’s not a bad thing, I really like PJ Harvey, but if you’re one of those music snobs who won’t listen to anything even slightly derivative consider yourself both warned and deprived.
Bradley and her band The Goodbye Horses are the winners of the most recent Toohey’s UncharTED competition, scoring a slot on the 2009 Big Day Out tour.
