About Willie

While all the listed accomplishments are very important to Willie, he is most proud of his current position serving in his second year as a full time Music Industry Professor/Artist in Residence at South Carolina State University. He has also established the Willie E. Bradley, Jr. Scholarship Foundation, which supports the music industry students at SCSU. In 2021 and 2022, Willie promoted three community jazz concerts that raised money for the endowment scholarship fund, which featured music industry students from South Carolina State University. With all these important roles that Willie has had with higher education, he was nominated and received the very prestigious Distinguished Alumnus Award winner for 2022 at South Carolina University.

“I am extremely excited about coming to perform at the 2024 Branford Jazz Series. I am looking forward to a great time,” said Bradley.
