Itโ€™s hard not to admire the indie musician ethic of Bradley Tindall and his band Rising Hedons.
— David Chen, The Taipei Times
Bradley sings with a passion known to few. The audience is awed. This is no ordinary gig, no ordinary band.
— Robert The, Highway 11 Magazine
Tindall enters another dimension when he is playing music. Iโ€™ve only got one word to describe it, and that is, inspired.
