Singer/songwriter/artist Brady Seals has a pedigree for success. You could say that music is “in his blood,” as he is related to numerous industry heavyweights that includes Jimmy Seals (Seals & Crofts), as well as Dan Seals (England Dan & John Ford Coley), and Troy Seals (Songwriting Hall of Fame Member).
Over the course of his career, Brady has sold over 11 million albums and Brady Seals is probably best known for his tenure in the 1990‘s as keyboardist and co- lead singer in the Grammy nominated group Little Texas (Warner Brothers). Seals co- wrote three consecutive #1 songs for the band (“What Might Have Been,” “God Blessed Texas,” and “My Love”) winning him ASCAP’s Triple Play award.
In 1996 Seals pursued a solo career, collaborating with the legendary Rodney Crowell to co-produce his Warner Brothers album, The Truth. It features a duet with Wynonna Judd, “Another You, Another Me” that sold over 100,000 singles. A self-titled CD followed in 1998 with guest appearances by Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Timothy B. Schmidt (The Eagles), Bela Fleck and Max Carl (.38 Special).
Seals returned to his band roots, and formed Hot Apple Pie (DreamWorks) in 2002. The band quickly made history when they became the highest selling debut country group in the Neilson Soundscan era. Their entry single “Hillbillies Love it in the Hay” went Top 20. The video shot to #1 on VH-1 Country and was among CMT’s “Top 20 Sexiest Videos.”
Most recently, Brady he has founded the songwriter show called Music City Pickers LIVE! featuring artists such as Ricky Skaggs, Larry Stewart (Restless Heart), Richie McDonald (Lonestar), Peter Frampton and many other hit makers.
Talented and soulful vocalist Lua Crofts comes from 70’s era rock royalty. The daughter of Dash Crofts of the hugely popular 70’s duo Seals & Crofts, performers of such hits as “Summer Breeze”, “Get Closer”, and “Diamond Girl”, grew up in Los Angeles California right smack dab in the middle of the 70’s and 80’s music industry.
Deciding to follow in her father’s footsteps, her first experience as a session singer was as the tender age of 7 years old when she accompanied both her mother and father on a song that would be featured on a popular children’s album. She would go on to become an in-demand session singer throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s in the Los Angeles area, singing background vocals on many popular R&B albums for artist’s like Rahsaan Patterson (MCA), Tevin Campbell (Qwest), Shanice Wilson (LaFace Records), Ray J (East West Records), Tamia Washington (Elektra Records) and many more. She was also featured on the smooth jazz track “Better Days” off of the legendary Producer/Guitar player Louie Shelton’s 1998 Jazz album “Hot & Spicy”.
In ‘96 she toured the world as a background vocalist for Rahsaan Patterson’s self-titled album tour and again for his ’99 “Love In Stereo” album tour. She also toured with Brady Seals for his ‘97 solo album tour, “The Truth” and it is here that Lua and Brady first worked together musically.
She currently lives in Nashville Tennessee with her husband and children, continues to do studio session work and sings/tours with the popular Nashville Gospel Choir, Eric Dozier and Friends.
