Bradley Palermo, Vol. 1 is the missing link between Clint Eastwood and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Well-written cow-punk with an emo streak wider than the desert between Flag and LA, Palermo’s migration to the latter makes up much of its laments.

“Bradley Palermo’s Volume 1 is nearly a perfect folk album. Featuring a variety of influences, emotions, and incredibly candid lyrics, the album is easy to listen to and connect with...”

“Bradley Palermo has released a new tune entitled “Tombstones” and after a listen, you too will understand why Bradley is quickly becoming one of our favorite singer/songwriters! Tour dates listed below.”
“bradley palermo is an LA based singer/songwriter who has followed the classic creative arc from punk/emo/hardcore music to alt-country and americana. his latest song 'deep valley blues', has full on outlaw vibes, with an easy going honky-tonk rhythm section (all bradley), hard luck lyrics and a high-lonesome pedal steel guitar.
the vocals are gritty but i think i can still hear a bit of screamo/hardcore singer in bradley's voice, which works fine. this would be a good song to drink well tequila shots to as the sun goes down in a dive bar deep inside the inland empire.”
“Palermo finds his definitive style in the sounds of indie folk and Americana and delivers his stories through rich melodies and potent lyrics. "Deep Valley Blues" is a perfect blend of grit and nostalgia. An anthem with an addicting twang, perfect melody, and edgy yet warm vocals...”
“Very cool Post-Old School Country, uber catchy...just an all around good tune, if you’re a believer that this is the direction popular Country should be going in (as opposed to whatever it is you call that sensation of being vomited on while suffering through what they call Country today). Good stuff Maynard. ”
“Bradley Palermo has delivered a gritty new folk rockin’ single just in time for the holidays, Christmas In Las Vegas.
“Christmas in Las Vegas, trying to make it out alive. Paying for my sins one at a time…” Bradley sings through the easily memorable hook that aptly sets the atmosphere for this off-the-traditional-cuff holiday jam. Palermo’s gritty vocals and driving guitar join forces for a soulful, hard hitting song that sticks with you long after it ends.
I’m a big fan of grittier, darker folk and I’ve been known to not be the biggest fan of Christmas so this raw, organic, realistic look into not-so-polished-and-happy experiences during the holiday season is welcomed with open arms.
The saxophone that starts jamming around 2:36 is an unexpected sonic surprise that makes me dig this song even more.
Christmas In Las Vegas is now available.
You can listen below or connect with Bradley on his official website.”
