Brady Toops


Blending soul and folk, Brady Toops offers a unique and distinct sound in the singer/songwriter world. With over 2 million spins on Spotify and extensive touring in the last few years, Toops has garnered national acclaim sharing festival stages alongside NEEDTOBREATHE and Switchfoot, as well as opening for the likes of Drew Holcomb and Ben Rector.

Originally from New London, a small Minnesota town, Toops spent the majority of his early years running around on diamonds and athletic fields. After playing baseball at the University of Arkansas, as well as making a brief stint in Minor League Baseball with the St. Louis Cardinals, he left the world of athletics in 2006 to pursue music.

A few years later, Toops moved to Nashville, TN, and released his debut self-titled album in 2013. Showcasing a modern yet timeworn songwriting approach and rustic baritone voice, Toops has turned new listeners into dedicated fans across the globe. RELEVANT Magazine recently named him "one of our favorite new artists."

Taking a slight haitus from touring in 2015, Brady appeared on Season 11 of ABC's hit reality TV show "The Bachelorette". As one of the 25 suitors looking to win the heart of the Bachelorette, Brady left the show during the first night's rose ceremony to pursue one of the Bachelorettes who was voted off, a unique twist for that season. Fresh off a highly adventurous summer with a surplus of emotions and newfound experiences, Toops took the inspiration and disappeared into the studio to write and record 10 new songs. The record that ensued is Toops' boldest and most honest record to date showcasing a rootsy, soulful sound that builds off his previous work.

Brady's forthcoming record "Tried & True" is available for pre-order on Februrary 7th as well as the first single "Carolina". The full length album releases worldwide March 11th, 2017. Toops will embark on "The Tried & True Tour" throughout the U.S. in the spring of 2017.
