Formerly known as The Bradleys, this family group from Winston-Salem, NC has ministered through gospel music for more than 20 years.
It began with Arnold & Shirley Bradley singing as a duet in local venues. As the family grew, so did the group and the outreach.

They began their recording career with their daughter, Jennifer in 1989. When Jennifer married Bobby McCallister in 1991, he joined the family as well as the group.
In 2008, Arnold was diagnosed with a combination of debilitating diseases, Parkinsonís plus Alzheimerís. He continued limited touring with the group until 2009, when he retired from the music ministry.
The current members of New Salem are Shirley Bradley, Bobby & Jennifer McCallister, their son Kabe, and daughter Allison.


The family continued to sing, staying close to home to be near Arnold during his time of illness. 


Arnold Bradley moved on to heaven March 7, 2013, but the ministry of music he started and his testimony continues to touch hearts here on earth. 


The group makes a new start with a new name, not willing to make a "Bradley" recording without Arnold.  The word "salem" means peace. 


For this family group, the name, "New Salem" represents their home town of Winston-Salem, NC and the wonderful peace of Jesus which they have experienced during their most difficult times.


Current members of New Salem are Shirley Bradley, Bobby & Jennifer McCallister, their son Kabe, and daughter Allison.
