Brad Tucker

 

Canadian born singer/songwriter Brad Tucker has been writing and performing music professionally since 1996 with the release of his first studio recording “The Color of Love”. He was first recognized nationally in 2003 with a prestigious nomination for an ECMA Award, along- side of major artists including Anne Murray, Great Big Sea, and The Rankin Family. As his musical journey came to fruition, more nominations and awards followed. “I’m thankful for my accomplishments so far, but the greatest reward for me is seeing the hearts of my fans being touched in a positive way”, say’s Tucker. He continued, “We have the power as musicians to speak to the lives of people and to me that only leaves one choice… positive verses negative”. Brad is a great entertainer with real emotion in his vocal performance. His songs come from his heart and reflect his values, and the stories come from personal experiences that everyone can relate to.

Brad’s new album reflects his talent both as a singer and as a songwriter.  His entire album is the best of the best, utilizing Brad’s talents with the collaboration of some of Music City’s best songwriters, and produced by Emmy award winner Kenny Royster and Grammy nominated producer Kent Wells, both veteran producers in Nashville. There’s a lot more music constantly turning in Tucker’s heart and mind and we expect to see him climbing the charts with his hit songs! Brad offers something for listeners of all ages.

Out of India to “Oz”

The Journey of Rhett May

Rhett May owes his rare musical sound and style to the unique environment that he grew up in. Born in 1950, in Calcutta, India, he was immediately immersed in a magical, musical melting pot. Carnatic and Hindustani music and instruments such as the Sitar and Tabla were always providing melody and percussion against a daily backdrop of lifting and soaring voices of Ragas. Ragas especially played a vital part of Rhett’s musical experience with their series of five or more musical notes forming melody. However, this environment of classical Indian music wasn’t the only sounds floating about Calcutta in the nineteen-fifties and nineteen sixties. By the time Rhett had begun boarding school in the Himalayan foothills; western music had also begun an invasion. The cinemas featured musical movies from The Monkees, Cream, or Jimi Hendrix. Elvis and Ricky Nelson’s pop also pulsated through the airwaves. Sixties – Seventies – Success…

Rhett’s formed his first band, The Wooly Bullys, at the age of 15. Their first taste of fame came in 1966, when they won Battle of the Bands. They became such a hit that they performed many of the venues that were hot at that time, such as Trincas, The Park Hotel and Mocambo’s. The Wooly Bullys evolved into a band called The Flint Stones. The Flint Stones became India’s most successful pop group, being featured on the cover of many of the music magazines. The Flint Stones recorded a successful single in “Be Mine (Happy by My Side)” with HMV/EMI and even attracted the attention of former Beatle George Harrison and Apple Records. The band was asked to come to the UK, and was double billed with the likes of legendary jazz guitarist Charlie Bird.

This was a very successful time for Rhett who accompanied his band to play a private concert for the Queen of Bhutan and her family. This was not the end of May’s musical growth, however, only the beginning. The nineteen sixties were blossoming musically with the addictive melodies and varied styles that were precisely what Rhett loved. Rhett states, “The sixties got me hooked on bands like The Yardbirds, Steppenwolf, The Beatles, Herman’s Hermits … and the list goes on!” Rhett would carry this heavy influence of the nineteen sixties into his musical future as the underpinning of his musical style. A Saturday Night In “Oz”…

Rhett left his native India in 1969, and would start his music career anew in Australia.

As a solo artist, he would win the Perth Talent Quest whole performing backed by the Troupadours in 1971. However, he wouldn’t remain simply a solo artist; Rhett would recreate the same group success he had in India all over again in Australia. Rhett states, “I got a totally new group of musicians together in ‘Oz’ – we were doing the ‘garage’ thing.” This garage band would develop into a successful band which evolved from the “Shakespeare Sarani” to “Prodigy”, and eventually they changed their name to “Lucifer.”

As the decade of the seventies progressed, they opened for bands like QUEEN and Ray Charles. Rhett’s success was about to be changed forever by the “fever” of Saturday Night Fever. The Disco era came suddenly, and it would force Rhett and his band mates to move out of music. The gigs dwindled almost overnight from 13 a week to perhaps one a month and the dance floors became filled with DJs and Disco lights. Rhett’s musical career was about to be turned upside down.

Fast Forward Thirty Years…

Rhett is now a resident of Australia…living by the beach in Black Rock…Melbourne.

The passion and creativity has returned with a vengeance.

Rhett teamed up with Platinum Producers of Musik and Film to create a new EP “Insatiable”.

There’s no doubt Rhett May is back to his best…

’Cocktails and Cannabis’, ‘Insatiable’, ‘Hey Peter’ and his latest single ‘Jenny’….are setting fire to music charts across the globe….the harbinger of a new era in music that is unique and a breath of fresh air !

As one scribe puts it…”It’s hypnotic…it’s infectious…love songs with an edge that go round and round inside your head….very Haight Ashbury”….
