Elaine Bradley (born October 19, 1984) is an American musician and songwriter, and the drummer for the American rock band Neon Trees.
Elaine Doty, the youngest of seven children, was born October 19, 1984 to Robert and Carolyn Doty. She is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and volunteered full-time as a missionary in Frankfurt, Germany for eighteen months. She later earned a B.S. in Public Health and a minor in German from Brigham Young University.
Neon Trees formed in 2005 and Elaine Bradley joined in 2006. Neon Trees gained nationwide exposure in 2008 when their premier single "Animal" topped the Billboard Alternative Songs chart and reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, later winning a Billboard Music Award for Top Alternative Song (2011). They have since released three albums, earned two RIAA double-platinum singles, and toured extensively with rock groups including Thirty Seconds to Mars, Angels & Airwaves, My Chemical Romance, Duran Duran, The Offspring, and Maroon 5.
Bradley currently plays maple Sonor Custom Delite drums, a maple Craviotto snare, Zildjian cymbals, DW hardware, and Remo drum heads (except for the bass head, which is Aquarian). She uses Vic Firth 3As, but has been known to enjoy a 5A from time to time.
Elaine married Sebastian Bradley, a dual German/American citizen, in January 2011 in the Draper Utah Temple. They have three children. She and her family are featured in the I'm a Mormon video campaign for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
