Inspired at an early age to sing and emulate other musicians both vocally and harmonica styles, his obsession with the blues is apparent. Born in Detroit in 1956, his father sang on the radio in the 1950's then Brad was exposed to the records of Little Walter, Muddy Waters, James Cotton, and others by his older brother Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. His attraction was about the soulful and emotional qualities of the music.

Brad is committed to the tradition and has been influenced by his older brother Kim Wilson, James Cotton, Otis Rush, Sonny Boy Williamson, Lazy Lester, Slim Harpo, and other exemplary bluesmen.
