Has a soulful Americana sound, tapping into all his sources of inspiration. His shows are the kind of high-octane performances that have made him a standout hit at countless concerts. Considered more than a talented guitarist by his audience, Brad is an exciting entertainer.

As a rocked-up charismatic guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Brad has become known as a smokin' hot guitar player who can rock the house all night long with the best of them. His songwriting has a hard-charging Americana/Blues/Roots style. He can rip on lead. Brad's live show is presented with spirit and class.

Already a three-album charting hit maker, he scored his first US #1 movie track with the song, "Teaser" from John Carpenter's Vampires film, a collaboration with producers The Robb Brothers. For the smash follow-up 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 & The Restless (CBS) and Passions (NBC). Brad has three best-selling albums: "Blues Thunder," "Power Blues Guitar Live" and "Hands On The Wheel" that included worldwide charting hits "Step By Step," "Change It Up" and "The Ballad Of John Lee."

However, it's through his touring career and exciting live show, with his band, "Brad Wilson & The Rollin' Thunder Band" that he's established an identity that exists in its own right, as a guitar-star entertainer.

2018 was an exciting year for Brad, from performing a concert of back-to-back guitarists featuring Brad Wilson and the King of the Blues, Buddy Guy, at a sold-out festival in Arizona, to huge concerts at the West Coast's largest casinos and festivals. He and his band had previously performed tour dates with the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago; and they will again this summer, including sold-out arena shows in California.

What critics are saying

The back cover of Brad Wilson's new CD, Hands On The Wheel (Blues Boulevard Records) reads that the California guitarist "plays high-octane rocked-up Blues." Yeah, and Moby Dick was a big fish. That statement is the only understated item about this electrifying CD. Brad Wilson rocks the house, y'all.....pure and simple. If you're looking for a disc to plug into your car stereo, crank up to 11 with the windows and top down, look no further.

Graham Clarke
Blues Bytes Magazine

Sometimes referred to as the "Billboard Chart of the Blues," Roots Music Report gives Brad Wilson's new album, Hands On the Wheel, their highest rating: 5 Stars!

"Brad Wilson sings with a passion and his new CD is simply a splendid example that we hope more blues up and comers will choose to follow. If this release doesn't get you jumpin, then your jumper is broke."

Robert Bartosh
Roots Music Report

When the opening riff of "Hands On The Wheel" begins, it will be hard to put down Brad Wilson's album, a driving Blues/Rock hybrid that beckons people to lean in closer to the speaker and listen carefully to this unique mixture of tasty guitar riffs that need to be noticed, and the wailing vocals represent all that that sounds cool. In fact, this album should be wearing its own pair of sunglasses!

Michael Brasier
American Blues Scene

Wilson convinces not only as a singer and songwriter but also as a guitar player, and just burns down a firework with his six string guitar doing Roadhouse and Bluesrock.
