The Bradbury Press are bouncing up and down on stage as they break into their single 'The Bouncing Ball'. The audience bounces in sync to the beat as a beach ball floats above the crowd out into the audience. And then you hear that voice. It is becoming a familiar scene, packed venues of smiling faces bobbing their heads to the upbeat rock of one of Seattle's fastest up-and-coming young bands. The Bradbury Press are making their move to larger venues like The Showbox with airplay on KMTT 103.7 The Mountain and a hard-working, grassroots ethic. Bearing the stamp of The Dave Matthews Band and early Counting Crows, The Bradbury Press make their own, rocking acousti-band sound that puts good songs and strong hooks first. Darren Golden's brooding, distinctive vocals are backed by the tight musicianship of Dave Brewer, Travis Hartman, and Greg Garcia, bringing the energy and intensity of the jam band to the 4 minute pop nugget. The result is more party than rock pageantry, more music than musical muscle flexing: it's simply a good time. In just a few short months, pounding the pavement with heir Debut album 'Hanscom' has already paid off. Recorded in The Bradbury Press' rehearsal space, 'Hanscom' is an intriguing mix of folk and rock, funky beats and breakdowns. From the opening pop of 'Bouncing Ball' to the spacey vibe of 'Daydreaming Song', The Bradburies keep their influences close to the surface while adding their own sheen of catchy melodies and distinctive vocals. With final touches by mixing and production duo The A-Team and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Kingham, The Bradbury Press' 'Hanscom' has inspired the band to be tagged as 'as tuneful as any number of bands who've gone on to bigger and better things'(Seattle Weekly). And with a steady schedule of shows, things just keep getting bigger and better.
