Sam Bradley Interview
PopStar: What got you involved in music?
Sam Bradley: My mum is a singer/songwriter and she bought me a guitar when I was 16. I have always sung. I used to sing R. Kelly songs in my bedroom.
PopStar: Can you tell us a little about your experience co-writing Never Think with your good friend Robert Pattinson?
Sam Bradley: The experience was a flat in London. It was a rather late night and we basically started humming and playing guitar. We ended up recording it and wrote words to the hums the next day, and that was it.
PopStar: You went to both the LA and the London premiere of Twilight. What was that like?
Sam Bradley: I expected craziness in LA and that was what it was. That was the first time I watched the film and it was very exciting. In comparison to the London one I honestly didn’t expect all the pandemonium. There were thousands of people and it was so cool because I got to go with my friends.
PopStar: Have you read Twilight?
Sam Bradley: No, I am going to. I have been pretty busy at the moment. It’s the next read.
PopStar: Okay, so we know that you are partial to this question but we feel compelled to ask. Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Sam Bradley: Edward. Team Edward, no question.
PopStar: Any chance you will write a song for New Moon?
Sam Bradley: I am working on it. That is out of my control. I have written a song with the idea of it being put towards the new movie. I have not played it for Rob yet but I’m sure he will like it.
PopStar: Where can we listen to more of your great music?
Sam Bradley: MySpace & YouTube are my only outlets right now. There is also a live journal. It is really cool, they are keeping up to date with every song we post or video we post.
PopStar: What is your favorite song currently on MySpace?
Sam Bradley: I like Sea Blue; that is probably my favorite. They are only demos so they are not final projects.
PopStar: Any tour dates coming up?
Sam Bradley: I don’t have any information right now; we are just working on where we will be going. Marcus Foster and Bobby Long and I want to visit as many places as we can. I think that it will be in the month August/September.
PopStar: Message to PopStar fans:
Sam Bradley: As long as it’s true to you, then you are doing something right.
