Irish-born, Boston-based Bob Bradshaw has been exploring many facets of Americana music in the thirty years he’s lived in the States – from the Texas singer-songwriters he strives to emulate to the high-energy roots-rock he plays in bar bands any night of the week. He has lived in New York City and in San Francisco, where his rock band ‘Resident Aliens’ was a fixture on the local scene during the 90’s. He graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 2009, having mostly played in bluegrass ensembles there. ‘Queen Of The West’ is his eighth album of original songs. Mining parallels between the west of Bradshaw’s native Ireland, and the frontiers of the American west, the songs are told through the same characters.
