“One Man Show possesses a strong overcast using throwback songwriting and vocal delivery that would make you do a double take wondering if it is a Cat Power tune. It is a stunning alternative to all of the assembly line drivel floating around calling itself country. ” http://www.myoldkentuckyblog.com/?p=45200
Head on over to noisey to hear the new tune, One Man Show!
“Her songs feel vintage yet timeless, seething and breathless. And as she sings of heartache and desolation, it all feels equally delicate and dangerous. …Happy Ever After could serve as something of a theme song for some unmade femme fatale grindhouse flick… preferably a Western.”
Dates and details coming soon!

Head on over to American Songwriter for a limited download of, “If Only He Were You,” a left-field waltz that mixes spaghetti western guitar riffs with ‘80s keyboards and Dusty Springfield-worthy pop melodies. Adam Landry and Justin Collins, the production team behind albums by Deer Tick and Middle Brother, tracked the song in Nashville, capturing everything in “pretty much one take.” Deer Tick’s keyboardist, Robbie Crowell, makes an appearance, and singer/songwriter Carey Kotsionis beefs up Bradanini’s vocals with a little harmony.” http://www.americansongwriter.com/2013/10/song-premiere-pony-boy-if-only-he-were-you/
Tune into abc at 10/9c to hear the new tune, If Only He Were You, on Betrayal. More new music coming soon!
I’m emerging from the studio to play a few solo tunes at The Family Wash in East Nashville. I’ll be debuting some new jamz and along w Charlie Greene and Nashville’s finest, Los Colognes.
Let’s set the record straight: Pony Boy is not a slicked-back greaser who’s about to take his sweetheart on a drive down to teenage tragedyville. Pony Boy is actually doom wop chanteuse Marchelle Bradanini, a blonde bombshell with candy apple red lipstick and usually sporting a leather jacket who could probably get a rebel without a cause to stir up some mayhem just for her.
Check out full interview here where we talk about her many inspirations and why her next track sounds like a party in a graveyard.
