I studied violin classically at music school, diversifying into jazz, folk, rock and improvisation at Brunel University. During my time in London I played in the Irish folk band Slainte and with Hot Club bands. My direction took a turn towards violin making whilst being immersed in motherhood, then I completed a Pg dip in Jazz Performance at Birmingham Conservatoire in 2014.

In 2015-16 I played and sang with alto sax player Martin Speake in his band Mafarowi, as well as other line ups, and also recorded my KnifeAngel Suite, then released in 2019.

2020 brought about an ongoing collaboration with avant garde free jazz drummer Tony Bianco. brackenburybianco.com      Our album 'Rising Up' was released July 2021



Alfie Bradley's KnifeAngel sculpture started touring UK cities in 2019. The KnifeAngel suite was inspired by this awesome sculpture and feat of craftsmanship that brings awareness to the issues surrounding knife crime and violence in the UK.
