KC Musician Finds Tough Life in NYC Subways


Phillip Bradley was looking for work back in January when he came across a Craigslist ad for a documentary film. The movie company filming the picture was looking for musicians willing to move to New York City and perform in subways. The idea was to see how good musicians from elsewhere would fare performing underground in the big city. Bradley figured he was a natural.

The 25-year-old singer-songwriter from Raymore didn’t hear anything for months, until he got a call from Connecticut-based Cool Hand Pictures. The studio picked him as one of three musicians for the film. So a week ago, Bradley flew out to New York to begin his gig as a subway musician.

Things haven’t gone well so far, Bradley tells me by phone.
