Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
*“I have been playing since I was eight…all my life. I tried other instruments. I come from a family of musicians,” said Violinist Traliece Bradford, known on stage as Traliece B., about her skills.
Traliece’s last gig was playing for the Masquite Symphony Orchestra, which received a Grammy nomination for their 2009 album release while she was there.
“It wasn’t until…2011…God told me to step down. I was totally content and happy in the Orchestra. It wasn’t too long until I rededicated my life to Christ.”
Traliece created a record label, Wild Jehu Music, which was picked up by Devine Jamz Gospel Network. She later released two Christian singles, which she also sings on, titled “Forever Love” and “Nobody Knows.” Her vocal ability is just a brilliant as her violin skills, projecting an exotic sound.
“My only thing is to release singles every couple of months,” said Traliece when I asked her if she planned to release an album. “He (God) said to develop my own sound.”
She said since rededicating her life to Christ she does what she feels He wants her to do, “I do have a third. Three more being mixed and mastered…I am going back into the studio to do three more. ”
I told her it looks like God is putting together a full album for her to release. On February 15, 2020 Traliece will perform at the Frisco School of Music and I am sure she will be playing her new singles. Based in Dallas and a Business Manager at Bristol-Myers Squibb, Bradford started out playing violin for the New Orleans Youth Symphony Orchestra, then the Red Valley Symphony Orchestra in Virginia and last with the Masquite Symphony Orchestra. Her background and training was in Classical, Pop and Jazz. Her singles sound a bit Pop/Jazz giving them and her voice a fresh sound. www.WildJehuMusic.com www.DevineJamz,net/Traliece-B
