Simon Bradshaw (AKA WeatheredMan) is an award-winning writer and producer currently working out of a number of studios across the north of England. Over the past few years he has worked with renowned artists from all over the globe (Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Wombats, Cheryl Cole, Peter Hook) and recently scored a number one hit in 78 countries for his writing and production work on K-Pop legends ShinEE’s “Don’t Call Me” album.
As a performer himself in a variety of cult indie bands (largely via the Probe Plus label – the UK’s longest running independent and publishers Bucks Music Group) he has accumulated support from all the UK’s premier tastemakers (NME, Q, Huff Post, Louder Than War, Steve Lamacq, Jo Whiley, Zane Lowe, Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe and his treasured John Peel session), completed mulitiple US and European tours (including 3 trips for headline gig at SXSW).
Now recording as WeatheredMan, last year his many volumes of varied output were recognised when he was nominated as Best UK Solo Artist and for Best UK Song by the indie bible Pure M (alongside luminaries such as Zayn Malik, Kate Tempest, Adam Ant and Gaz Coombes) plus a nomination in 2022 at the PMA’s for Best Indie/Alternative track.
After a successful EP in 2020 and a lauded Christmas single, WeatheredMan now presents his 2 piece rock band – WeatheredMan and the Noise. It’s raw. It’s loud. It’s 2 men who frankly should know better, playing as if their lives depended on it.
