New York City’s The Rad Trads are busy winning over audiences, gaining loyal fans and defying classification. The group boasts five distinct lead vocalists intertwined in their signature blend of indie rock, Americana, and soul.
Their newest release, On Tap explodes into completely new territory. Walls of horns and psychedelic guitars meld with lush acoustic arrangements laying an intricate foundation for songs that are funny, challenging and well-crafted. On Tap showcases a singular sound that reveals an exciting possibility: this band is ready to etch their names into a lineage that starts with Little Richard and Elvis Presley; passes through the Stones, Dylan, Lou Reed and the Boss; and ends up in the present day grasping for tomorrow.
The Rad Trads have toured across four continents, 15 countries, and 41 states and have shared the stage with artists such as Lake Street Dive, Tom Jones, Charles Bradley, Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy, the Lone Bellow and Margaret Glaspy.
