Did Brad Rourke grow up in Detroit, hanging out in Cass Corridor dives like the Old Miami and The Uncooperative where Grief Factory and the 3-D Invisibles killed? Did he crawl through the Berkeley punk scene back when Fang and MDC still ruled, and get thrown out of a Pogues show at the Fillmore for stage diving? Has he worshipped Nick Cave ever since Prayers on Fire? GUILTY AS CHARGED.

So why is Brad Rourke singing country-lonesome songs about losers and left-behinds, armed with a guitar and his smokey, whiskey voice? Cause that's who he knows.

Brad Rourke is a singer-songwriter based in Rockville, Maryland. He writes and sings songs about the fissures and cracks in everyday life. His songs will drag you down. The people you meet in them are stuck, caught in their own self-destruction in a place where nothing comes free. If you dig people like that as much as Brad does, come along. Maybe they'll let you stay awhile.
