Geoff Bridgford is an Australia singer songwriter who started his music career as a drummer in the mid sixties playing for popular Australian bands ‘Steve and the Board’ and ‘The Groove’ The Groove won the coveted first prize (a trip to the UK) in the Hoadley’s National Battle of the Sounds competition in 1968.
It was in London in 1970 while playing drums for UK based band ‘Tin Tin’ that Geoff started recording with the (reunited) ‘Bee Gees’ (After their initial rise to fame in 1967/68 the Bee Gees broke up in 1969 and the brothers reunited in 1970). Geoff was asked to join the group following the release of the ‘Two Years On’ album. He toured internationally with the Bee Gees and played on songs that were released on four albums, seven singles and received Gold records for the million selling hits ‘Lonely Days’ and ‘How Can You Mend A Broken Heart’ (the Bee Gees first number one in the USA) The early seventies period is well documented in Bee Gee biographies as a tumultuous and uncertain transitional period for the brothers and by mid 1972 Geoff had decided to leave the group.
After leaving the Bee Gees Geoff continued his musical journey on the world stage as an international recording and touring drummer and from the late eighties as a singer songwriter.
After living in the USA and Europe for many years Geoff now resides in Australia.
His intimate album ‘Another World’ received encouraging reviews and the video clip of ‘Ordinary Man’
(from the album) was voted one of You Tube Australia’s most viewed music videos the week it was uploaded.
In April 2017 Geoff released a single ‘It’s My Heart Responding’ from an upcoming EP
