Scott Bradshaw, who records as Scott B. Sympathy, is a Canadian indie rock and alternative country musician. He released several albums with his eponymously named band in the 1990s, and subsequently became a member of Stratochief following the 1999 death of that band’s singer Greg McConnell.
Originally from Brantford, Ontario, Bradshaw moved to Toronto at age 20. He began performing on the Queen Street West club scene in the 1980s, both as a solo artist under the name Scott B. and with the band Scott B. Sympathy. The name “Scott B. Sympathy” was originally intended as the name of the band, with his own stage name simply being “Scott B.” However, this was so frequently misunderstood by fans and music journalists that when crediting the band’s 1996 album Long Way Down to “The Sympathy” still failed to resolve the confusion, Bradshaw eventually relented and adopted “Scott B. Sympathy” as his own stage name.

“SEV’S CELLAR” // with Sev Micron
A classically trained musician with a penchant for the punk music. Sev has played in numerous bands, on keyboards, drums and voice. Tulpa, with John Bottomley, holds a special place and so do the rock punkers, Throbbin’ Hoods. Sneaking up on 40 years of experience in a variety of mediums, Sev Micron engineers Muzicare Productions and has produced a good number of indie artists. Songwriting is another of Sev’s many and considerable talents.
And it wouldn’t be right to not mention that Sev loves animals, dogs especially (hi Bela), and that cooking is a forte! Peace and love are big fans, too.
