Bradley Banks is a multi-instrumentalist who composes, performs and records all elements of his music. His songs contain organic and electronic instrumentation and moods ranging from frantic and upbeat to somber, pensive and melancholy. His eclectic music reflects his vast experience from playing violin and percussion in orchestras to performing in seedy NYC punk rock venues. Bradley strives to create music that is sonically unique often with mangled, distorted sounds and unconventionally coupled instrumentation to make your project STAND OUT!
Bradley Banks has been playing music for the majority of his life, and currently plays bass for various New York City bands. He has performed in a wide range of settings from playing violin and percussion in orchestras to singing and playing in clubs all around New York City.
Bradley's studio is filled with a variety of instruments and both new and vintage (circa 1950s) pieces of analog recording gear. Most of the microphone pre-amps, microphones and compressors he uses were built, designed or refurbished by Bradley, himself. He uses many homemade distortion pedals and modified compressors to achieve a unique sonic palette.
An instrumental song inspired by the Nazareth song "Love Hurts", same sorta chord progression and instrumentation. Perfect for a sad break up, or love story or similar. Also perfect for some kind of love related montage, Instrumental, Soundalikes, Everly Brothers
This is a 30 second loop that was inspired by Portishead. There is a bumping hip-hop kinda beat with a whammy bar guitar hitting big chords, there is a rhodes in the background with tons of reverb adding some ear candy. The end of the loop cuts to an almost southern-hip-hop break. Instrumental, Soundalikes, Portishead
This song was written to sound like "We got the Beat" by the Go-Go's. It has a similar lead hook and building part and similar piano stabs. Really a fun song with a pretty epic interpretation of the chorus. Could be perfect for a car chase or action scene. Instrumental, Soundalikes, Go-Gos
