ELBOW STRIKE, as the name suggests, offers a hard hitting rock funk sound, precise, decisive and unique. The band is the latest project by Chris T Bradley, songwriter, musician and globetrotter. Show 3 years of experimental work between composition and completion "Planning Great Adventures" emerges as bright and sharp as a lightning bolt. With its 11 powerful songs ranging from stoner rock, hard rock, grunge, southern rock and beyond. Planning Great Adventures’ is a concept album. It lends itself to a childhood fascination of Chris T Bradleys’ the main theme being "Aliens". As a young boy, he first heard the stories of alleged sightings, the conspiracy’s, the hidden facts. This intrigued him greatly and he continued with his path to gain further knowledge. Special guest in this album are E1Ten on vocal (front man of "Gotcha AllStarz" and also collaborated with "Funkadelik" and "George Clinton") and Marc "Swazi" Sokpolie "Track Addicts" on bass. The elements and originality that characterize the project are supplied mainly by the personality of Chris T Bradley, who has toured throughout America, Europe and Asia. It was during these travels and with his attentive ear and his ability to incorporate an entire international music vibe, all was absorbed and adapted to make it his own. This culminated in a recipe absolutely personal and unique.
Il progetto Elbow Strike nasce nel 2007 da un'idea di Chris T Bradley, cantautore nato a Trieste nel 1972 da madre inglese. Dopo esperienze live in Italia e Olanda, registra il suo primo demo come cantautore nel 2005 e partecipa a vari contest. Nello stesso anno partecipa a un programma radiofonico su Flash Rock Radio di Hollywood (California) e si trasferisce negli States per 3 anni, in cui suona dal vivo e collabora con le migliori band locali di L.A. Nel 2011 scrive l'album intitolato "Planning Great Adventures" che viene prodotto da Nicola Ardessi con due speciali guest: Marc "Swazy" Sokpolie al basso in "Waiting 4 The Sun" e E1 Ten (cantante dei "Gotcha", "Funkadelik" e "George Clinton") alle parti vocali. Il master è stato realizzato alla "The Vault Mastering" di New York, lo stesso Studio usato dai Clutch e altre grandi band americane.
