Bradley is a true “victim of love,” and he pours unbridled emotion upon his audiences. Conjuring the spirit of Otis Redding, Bradley fills his set with a repertoire of songs evoking classic Motown. He captured the vibe on his two albums “No Time for Dreaming” (2011) and “Victim of Love” (2013). The work earned Bradley praise from “Rolling Stone,” “GQ,” “Paste” and the general public. His music has also led him to sets at SXSW, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Newport Folk Festival, Outside Lands and many other notable festivals. When he arrives in Gulf Shores, the crowd will not be able to resist moving and grooving to his nostalgic sound.

Tickets for Hangout Fest are on sale now online. VIP and travel packages are available as well.
