Jim Brady Trio to sing at Festival
The Jim Brady Trio will perform at Gospel Night at the 2015 Louisiana Railroad Days Festival Friday, Apr. 10. The trio is comprised of Jim and Melissa Brady and Tim Parton. All three have been involved in music from a very young age.
Jim and Melissa toured with Melissa's family, the Shulers, for about ten years before Jim joined The Booth Brothers. The Booth Brothers trio toured together more than twelve years.
Jim has received eight Baritone of the Year Awards, three Songwriter of the Year Awards, and several Dove and Grammy nominations.
Melissa holds a Master’s certificate in Songwriting from Berkley School of Music. Her Homecoming Day hit radio release was named Song of the Year by Absolutely Gospel and she has toured with such popular artists as The Hoppers, The Martins, and Mark Lowry.
Melissa and Jim possess a catalog of more than 200 songs they have written together.
In the summer of 2014, Jim left The Booth Brothers to join his wife in forming The Jim Brady Trio with Tim Parton.
Parton is a self-taught piano player who has toured with the Speer Family, Vestal Goodman, The Lesters, Gold City, and Legacy Five. “We can’t think of a nicer guy to have on our team,” Melissa shares. “He has such a smooth, warm, mellow voice and is such a great producer and arranger. We feel very blessed to have him as the third member of The Jim Brady Trio.”
The Jim Brady Trio has released their first CD, A New Chapter. Their first single was Steppin’ Out In Faith. More information on the trio may be found at: http://www.bradyhousemusic.com/jbt/
