With a road scholar’s appreciation for the past and a hopeless romantic’s viewpoint of the future, they deliver their own brand of classic country music up north/down south/back east & out west via the highways and byways of America.
Their mutual admiration for 60’s-90’s country music and appreciation for nostalgic films such as Urban Cowboy, Smokey & The Bandit, Coal Miner’s Daughter, WW & The Dixie Dance Kings and Honeysuckle Rose has merged to become an American Dream called The Record Store Troubadours!

Who I’m Liking: Memphis Musician Brad Birkedahl
Bradley Dean Birkedahl was born and raised in Tacoma Washington where he began taking guitar lessons at the age of 12. In the mid- 90’s and fresh out of high school, the birthplace of rock and roll came calling.
In 1998 Brad relocated to Memphis, Tennessee with his band The Demspeys. When the rockabilly trio wasn’t playing on historic Beale Street they were traveling around the world and sharing the stage with musical legends such as Carl Perkins, Wanda Jackson, James Burton, The TCB Band, Gunnar and Matthew Nelson, Billy Lee Riley, The Stray Cats, Paul Burlison, Malcolm Yelvington and DJ Fontana. The group was also chosen to perform for visiting presidents and a host of dignitaries.
Brad began his solo career in 2010. He continues to travel the world and perform regularly on Beale Street. In 2015 he and his former bandmates were honored with a brass note on Beale.
Brad played the role of Scotty Moore in the highly acclaimed film “Walk the Line”, the Johnny Cash biopic starring oscar-winners Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Pheonix.
