Bradford's musical gift has now taken him from the streets of New Orleans to performance halls around the world, playing shows in Japan, Cuba, Switzerland, at Carnegie Hall in New York, even at the Grammys.His first album, "Something Old, Something New," came out last year, and he just graduated from the Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship and now resides in Los Angeles.

Experimental Jazz; Jazz Fusion; Electro Jazz…however you want to label it, the pioneering artists taking Jazz to brand new audiences are some of the biggest success stories in the music industry in recent years, taking a form of music which had fallen cruelly out of fashion into something which unified people across generations, cultural backgrounds, and class. Entering the arena is Juhan Ongbrian who brings his guitar and compositional skills to a life which has seen him take influence from his birthplace in Indonesia, to Singapore and through to a prolonged stay in Seattle and finally to his base in Los Angeles. He is bringing his new EP this year for its launch, eager to show his combination of blues, jazz and ambient beats in his music. Musicians who are featured in this upcoming show: Ech0 on drums, Sly Chong on bass, and Hannah Ureste on trumpet.
