Leif Bradshaw has a voice that sounds like a cross between Gregory Porter and Kurt Elling. This talented musician also plays five instruments: piano, trumpet, viola, cello and percussion; and has already completed a number of professional composing projects.
Growing up obsessively consuming music and participating in projects of nearly every genre, Leif Bradshaw was particularly fond of jazz, possibly thanks to his parents choosing Vince Guaraldi instead of Mozart as default lullaby music for their newborn son. This fondness made him quick to seek out Hermann's Jazz Club, upon learning during his college classes about the jam sessions hosted there. Ever since, he would often make a point to drop in to sing, and try to make friends with those in Victoria's jazz scene. Now, after over half a decade of becoming a familiar face to Hermann's, whether as a regular patron, jam session participant, or guest singer with some fabulous local jazz headliners, Leif Bradshaw finally has launched his career as a headliner at Hermann's.
"When I hear the incredible Leif Bradshaw, my instinct tells me automatically that what is being expressed through his voice should be shared, should be heard, that is how powerful his musical message is. A message coming from someone that I know will not hold back, that will give it all from the moment he walk to the stage." - Jazz Pianist Pablo Cardenas
