Smitty and Deese are true soulmates; born with a passion for music. While their primary focus is on preserving the Gaelic folk tunes of their ancestral past, they will mix in an American folk tune, or a classic rock favorite from the 70’s… a plantation spiritual from the antebellum south, or an original jam that rises spontaneously during a live performance.
Brad made his stage debut in the kindergarten play "Pinocchio" as Pinocchio. Singing songs of freedom & hope like "I Have No Strings" & "When You Wish Upon a Star," the stage was a natural fit for the young Bradley. Fast forward years later & Brad played in the local Pittsburgh band "Salt of the Earth." The Salt started out in the groups hometown of Leechburg, but expanded to playing regularly in the Oakmont & Pittsburgh area. Greatly inspired by the Rolling Stones & other classic rock style bands, SOTE also delved into jam bands & expanded into playing many styles of music including reggae, funk, punk, rap, r & B, & blues. But they were always a rock n' roll based band. The group would play mostly cover songs at shows, but also constantly worked on writing original songs. Highlights of their over ten years playing together included opening up for the Dave Mathews Band & the legendary night of Robby Krieger of "The Doors" jamming with them at the Oakmont Tavern! After the band’s breakup, Brad worked on refining his craft & trying to write songs. He worked with various talented Pittsburgh musicians. B-Rad & the Best of the West Playas was created to combine the songs he was writing & creating with all this diverse Pittsburgh talent. The West Playas is both a homage to West Leechburg where Brad grew up and to Western Pennsylvania which is the area where most of the musicians are based from. The story continues in J-Town!
