Whether with his backing band, The Fustics, or performing as an acoustic artist, Brad Heller has established himself as a credible force among current songwriters.
Honing his craft for over a decade and a half, the Wilmington, North Carolina transplant has built a reputation as a thoughtful song-smith who tackles a wide range of personal and social issues. Bouncing between a myriad of genres, Heller finds creative drive in honoring musical influences that inspired him, while never abandoning his own unique sound.
With the release of The Sentence, Heller continues to build his audience with constant touring and spirited live shows. Heller’s The Sentence centers on middle-class characters while exploring themes of loss, self-imposed alienation, abandonment of faith, addiction, and immigration. Brad Heller and the Fustics will resume touring the U.S. full force into 2021 once the COVID-19 pandemic eases performance restrictions.
“An engaging collection of stories…and a very deep record. Whether he’s flirting with Springsteen’s style (‘Bound For Nothing’) or gliding into the distant afterlife (‘The Garden Tree’), Heller tells engaging stories that really draw you in.” – THE ROCK DOCTOR
Brad Heller is a blast from the not-too-distant past. He is a poet, a thinker, a great songwriter and a damn good musician. This is working class poetry from a master. Brad Heller is a breath of fresh air in this age of music pollution.” – BLUES HIGHWAY US 61
“Singer/Songwriter Brad Heller talks of the importance of tackling social issues with his music, the North Carolina music scene, his creative process and the advice of always being on time for soundcheck, treating other musicians with respect and with an open mind, and don’t ever piss off the sound-man, or venue.“- VIZIONS OF ROCK
Join a throng to see Brad Heller and The Fustics on Jan. 4 at O’Mainnin’s in Bristol. Heller leads a band centered in the core of that which brands best as Rock ’n’ Roll. Heller’s albums, beginning with 2005’s “The Conscience of Sins,” bear pronounced lyrics. They’re far removed from “baby, I love you” and “honey, I need you” lyrics. Instead, they’re “hey, ya gotta listen to this” words of merit.” – BRISTOL HERALD-COURIER
“Brad Heller plays an ecelectic blend of influences, from the Clash to (Johnny) Cash. They play music that hits on Folk Rock, Indie Rock, and Blues.” – THE LOS ANGELES BEAT
