Person 2 Person: Elaine Bradley, "Neon Trees" drummer

(KUTV) Elaine Bradley is the drummer for the successful band, "Neon Trees," but in this week's Person 2 Person, Shauna Lake found out she is much more. She is also a wife and mother. Bradley just gave birth to her third child in August.

Her husband, Sebastian, takes care of their children while she is on the road." He likes being a stay-at-home dad. He really thrives," she said.

"Neon Trees" got its start in Provo and when the band decided to really pursue their dreams, they moved to California. The first couple of years were rough for the band. "Every day I wanted to be like 'I want to get out of here,' but no, I never wanted to quit," Bradley said.

"I wanted to get out of that situation but I wanted to do it by getting out with the band, with success." Even though band members are close friends and work well together musically, Bradley said "Neon Trees" isn't a "love fest."

"We're more like divorced couples who have to work together," she said while laughing.

Bradley served an LDS mission and attended BYU before her music career really took off. She took part in the LDS Church's "I'm a Mormon" campaign. But she did have a rebellious path at one point in her life before she really figured out what she believed. "There's a piece of mind and a calm I could never have when I wasn't caring about what God had in mind for me," Bradley said.
