BRAD “GUITAR” WILSON 

  

  

Brad "Guitar" Wilson is currently charting on the Roots Music Chart in the top 20 albums, with his new record called Brad “Guitar”’ Wilson. The first single, “The Ballad Of John Lee” has already charted in the Top 20. 

  

It is being played on dozens of radio shows  around the world. We’re excited about this new summer release, called Brad “Guitar” Wilson, a collection of original songs, including blues classics.. The record is being supported by tour dates in the United States and Europe. 

  

Brad recently returned from his May, 2022 tour of Europe, and 

he’ll be back again in October, 2022 for more shows.  He completed his first European tour of the Netherlands in 2019.  

  

Brad has toured numerous times with the legendary group, Chicago. As a special guest, he has been on stage at sold-out arena shows throughout California, entertaining several thousand people at each concert.  And now in September, 2022, Brad will be opening four California shows for Chicago again! Very exciting! 

  

International guitarist/singer /songwriter Brad “Guitar” Wilson has a soulful contemporary sound, tapping into all his sources of inspiration. His performances have made him a stand-out hit at countless shows.  Considered more than a talented guitarist by his audience, Brad is an exciting entertainer. 

  

As a charismatic guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Brad has become known as a modern hot guitar player who can entertain the house with the best of them. His show features his songwriting and great renditions of dance cover songs. Brad's live show is presented with spirit and class. 

  

Brad has opened for many other platinum recording artists 

such as Buddy Guy, Cheap Trick, .38 Special, Marshall Tucker Band, Tommy Castro, and many others. He has established an identity as a guitar-star entertainer, performing at huge concerts at the West Coast’s largest casinos and festivals. 

  

2022 is a banner year for Brad "Guitar" Wilson with the release of an earlier album on Cali Bee Music, I’m Feeling Blue,  featuring originals and blues classic covers.  It has charted on both the USA and U.K. radio charts. 

  

Brad is currently working on his next record, Nepenthe.  Inspired by his beloved retreat of Big Sur, California, this album was recorded and mixed by some of the best engineers, including the legendary producer Francis Buckley. (Quincy Jones Alanis Morissette, Aerosmith). This stellar guitar album drops later this year. 

  

During 2020 and in 2021, Brad built a streaming show called "The Californian." The 30-minute show became a hit and introduced Wilson to a new audience worldwide.  Brad's hot electric guitar solo work and his in-depth acoustic guitar playing entertain viewers with both songwriting and singing. With three albums and now these new records, the shows feature songs from a deep catalog. 

Already a five-album-charting hit maker on worldwide radio, he scored his first U.S. #1 movie track with the song, “Teaser,” from John Carpenter’s film, Vampires, a collaboration with producers, The Robb Brothers. For the next smash soundtrack, Brad subsequently joined forces with John Carpenter and some of Los Angeles' hottest musicians for the music to the movie, Ghosts of Mars, starring Ice Cube. 

  

Other major accomplishments include his songs featured on television shows The Young And The Restless (CBS) and Passions (NBC). Brad has five best-selling albums: Brad “Guitar” Wilson, I’m Feeling Blue, Blues Thunder, Power Blues Guitar Live and Hands On The Wheel that include worldwide charting hits “I Can Never Love Again,” “Something Goin’ On,” “Step By Step," "Change It Up" and "The Ballad Of John Lee."
