Sam Bradley

Bio by ShackofSoul.com

Sam Bradley is a London-born singer/songwriter, currently residing in Vancouver. A late-comer to the music industry, Sam was inspired by his friends and family to learn to play. He met Rob Pattinson when he, Rob and Marcus Foster all went to school together.

Sam left school at 16, which ultimately led to his decision to pursue music. He began recording songs on his computer and attending local open mic nights. At 18, his love for music began to shape his future and he began his career as a singer/songwriter.

In 2008, a song he co-wrote with Rob, "Never Think," was selected to accompany the dinner scene in the movie Twilight and became part of the soundtrack.  The record debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 200 and spent 20 weeks in the Top 10 - a first since 1998 - and sold 2.2 million copies.

Sam recently released his first self-titled full EP, which is available for download at SamBradley.com. It includes six songs, a music video for his popular single Sea Blue and a digital booklet. Currently, Sam has plans for another North American tour this fall.
