Jaclyn Bradley is an indie singer-songwriter, best known for her work on The Voice of Holland, Ireland’s Got Talent, and Vh1’s Breaking Bonaduce. She is also known for her published music therapy research and vocal instruction at Rock Town Music Academy, which she founded.
An international performer, Jaclyn’s first language is music. A native of Lorain, Ohio, she has an opera degree from Indiana University.
After graduation, she moved to New York City only 10 days before the 9-11 attacks. With the world in uncertainty (and her roommate an employee in one of the towers), Bradley picked up her guitar in the aftermath and started to write. After recording an album with her New York-based band, Jaclyn moved West to Los Angeles to become a solo recording artist. She recorded two albums and toured the LA music scene as a singer/songwriter and as back-up singer to Ty Stone (Kid Rock, Atlantic Records), Michael Satrazemis (The Walking Dead), Gretchen Bonaduce (Vh1) and sang alongside Terri Nunn (Berlin).
Not long after landing in California, Jaclyn was hired as personal assistant to notorious “bad boy” celebrity, Danny Bonaduce. She filmed two seasons of the hit Vh1 series, Breaking Bonaduce, with him and his family, and her original songs were licensed and performed live on the show. Since then, Jaclyn and her music have been featured on MTV, Bravo, TLC, HGTV, and in film.
In addition to writing and performing, Jaclyn is a board certified music therapist. She led the largest music therapy study in history to research live music in surgery, which was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, one of the world’s premier high-impact medical journals.
While living in Europe, Jaclyn recorded two albums, appeared as a cast member on The Voice of Holland, performed on Ireland’s Got Talent, and sang at the acclaimed Noorderzon music festival.
Also a filmmaker, Jaclyn's music videos and documentary film, Made of Gold, have been recognized globally. Her short film/music video, Love the Bodies We’re In premiered at Graumen’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood during the Dances with Films festival. Most recently she was cast in the upcoming feature film "The Company We Keep" with Academy Award nominee Eric Roberts.
Jaclyn's latest single "Love Killer" was produced at Resistor Studios in Nashville by Joshua Grange (Lucinda Williams, Sheryl Crow, kd lang).
Cleveland Magazine has named her one of her hometown’s most interesting people.
