Bradley Wik has settled neither here nor there; he’s been traveling all over the continental United States for the past few years, guitar in hand playing whenever and wherever anyone would let him. In Bradley Wik & the Charlatans debut album, Burn What You Can, Bury the Rest… he brings you the tales from his travels, and introduces you to some of the people he met along the way.
Bradley doesn’t shy away from his rural roots. He brings an Alt. Country feel to several of his songs. Burn What You Can, Bury the Rest… is a royal mix of roaring guitars over rolling organs and pounding drums, satisfied by Bradley’s raw vocals and a few guest appearances. Think Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Uncle Tupelo (but less raw), early Wilco or Richmond Fontaine and you’ll not be far off.
