Sam Bradley, Holly Conlan

When: Sun., June 5, 8 p.m. 2011

Sam Bradley penned "Never Think," that acoustic slow burner on Twilight's 2008 soundtrack, meaning he is pretty well-connected to the world for a 20-something songwriter without a full-length release. (The former solo artist, now backed by his band, the Men, has several EPs.) Bradley's got teen girls and their moms playing his song on repeat, but he also has a poetic sensibility that'd grab non-Twilight fans just as well. Combining a concern for the environment with a cautious examination of love ("See blue on the horizon/ I can't feel blue for that much more," he ruminates), Bradley's lyrics sport the subtle turns of phrases and natural imagery that make you feel like folk music is still a frontier. With Holly Conlan. —Marissa Muller
