Independent singer/songwriter Brady Toops debuted his new self-titled, full length record in digital stores worldwide and broke into the top 10 for iTunes album sales in the Christian/Gospel category, reaching the #8 spot. The new success highlights the grassroots following Toops has cultivated over the last couple of years on the road as an independent artist with no label or management backing.
Drawing inspiration from artists like Jon Foreman and Johnny Cash, Toops combines elements of traditional folk, rock'n'roll and gospel in this latest project. Brady teamed up with new producer David Leonard (of All Sons & Daughters) to work on this 11-song collection in Franklin, Tenn. over the last year and a half. It includes co-writes with David Leonard (Integrity), as well as Anthony Skinner and Mia Fieldes (Hillsong).
"How a person sees the world bleeds through everything they do. The songs on this record are the most honest and sincere words I know how to say, whether that's being said to God, to a friend, or even to a certain group of people. The record is filled with prayers and stories around the themes of hope and mercy, as well as the struggle of pain and redemption. Many of these songs were written because I needed to find new words to express what I need to say. So my hope with this record is that it would add greater beauty to people’s lives and maybe help them to see their story and find their voice in the midst of these tunes," shares Brady.
