With over 3 million spins on Spotify and extensive U.S. touring in the last few years, Toops has garnered national acclaim sharing festival stages alongside NEEDTOBREATHE, 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 on athletic fields. After playing baseball at the University of Arkansas, as well as making a brief stint in the Minor Leagues 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.
Taking a slight hiatus from touring in 2015, Brady appeared on Season 11 of ABC's hit reality TV show "The Bachelorette". Afterwards, Toops took the inspiration and disappeared into the studio to write and record 10 new songs. The record that ensued ("Tried & True") is Toops' boldest and most honest record to date showcasing a rootsy, soulful sound that builds off his previous work.
