New EP and Single
For Canadian-born, country, singer-songwriter Cole Bradley, life’s always been about summer. Today, he invites you to celebrate the sun in style with the release of his new EP Back On A Beach, and focus track “Way I Drink”, out today via Kala Records. Produced by Grammy winner Noah Gordon (Keith Urban, Billy Ray Cyrus, Darius Rucker), and Sandy Chila (Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera), the EP is reminiscent of country stars like Jake Owen, Sam Hunt, and Brett Kissel. "Way I Drink" is currently on Spotify's New Music Friday Country playlist.
Bradley’s greatest summer memories have been over one too many Jamesons in the backyard and cruising down the middle of the lake with speakers blaring. It’s where he’s had his first brush with true love and his toughest of heartbreaks. His summer anthems like, ‘Way I Drink”, “Back On A Beach”, and “Headed Home”, tell the stories of lived experiences and rowdy nights out with best friends that stick with you forever. These attributes along with Bradley’s signature vocal style are what make his new five-track EP, Back On A Beach, an anthem-filled banger. Written between Nashville, and L.A., it’s a piece of work that embodies how far Bradley’s songwriting has grown since his debut album, My Boots, in 2016. The EP is hooky, positive, and upbeat with an infectious energy not all artists can create. His passion for performing and edgy country sound puts him a step above his peers.
The EP’s second track and radio single, “Way I Drink”, is exactly the fun-filled knockout one thinks of when one hears the name, Cole Bradley. Its up-tempo rhythm, fun melodies, and crazy lyrics mean business when it comes to getting the party started. It highlights all the stupid things you find yourself getting into on a wild night out. It’s an ode to those who are the life of the party. Whether you’re hearing it at an unruly Cole Bradley concert or you hear it blasting on country radio, “Way I Drink” is about to be your new obsession.
Showing no signs of slowing down, this summer Bradley will be bringing the party on the road. He is set to take the stage in Canada and parts of the USA, including a stint at National Saloon in Calgary, Alberta in July. Tickets are available HERE. All tour dates are below.

‘’Cole Bradley is a force and his new EP ‘’Back On The Beach'' and summer banger ‘’Way I Drink'' proves why,'' says Kim Cyr, Editor in Chief for NOW and THEN Magazine, radio host, and host of the International Music's Journey Podcast. ‘’I had the chance to catch up with Bradley to talk about his new project in an in-depth interview digging behind the lyrics and the music. Bradley shares a lot about his personal musical journey and he answers some fun questions for all his fans. I play the entire EP with the stories behind each song plus two bonus songs at the end of the interview. You are going to love it!''
