Rymer's newest CD, 'Here Comes Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could'' - a 2008 Parents' Choice Gold Award and NAPPA Gold Award Winner - marks Brady's debut recording with the band he's brought on the road since 2005. Combining a feel-good R&B foundation with traditional acoustic arrangements and a scoop of sunny 70's optimism, Brady Rymer and his band have created a distinctive, modern American roots sound for families raised on rock 'n' roll. Kids of all ages, moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas will all connect to this band's strong, straight-ahead grooves, catchy choruses and down-home, hip shaking vibe.
Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could will play favorites like "I Found It!," about losing, then finding, a loved toy; they'll also showcase rollicking, roots-y new tunes like "Road Trip," a boogie-woogie piano-driven rocker about piling into the car and driving through the heartland on a family adventure. The percolating groove and rich harmonies of Sirius Radio hit "Jump Up (It's A Good Day)" will bring audiences onto their feet and into the air! The NY Daily News declared, "Rymer and his Little Band That Could get the whole family groovin'." The San Jose Mercury News noted that Brady "effortlessly combines sparkling elements of folk, roots music and old-time rock 'n' roll." Parenting Magazine enthused, "Parents will rock out to Rymer's stirring songs right along with their tykes."
Brady Rymer toured and recorded with the RCA roots/rock band From Good Homes for thirteen years -- sharing the stage with the likes of Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews, and the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir -- before parenthood broadened the scope of his music. Five albums and countless live shows later, this veteran performer has established himself as one of the country's most captivating creators of music for kids and families. Brady's CD's have been enthusiastically praised by critics across the country and have won thirteen national awards. In an era of character-driven entertainment for children, Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could are the real deal, a soulful and spirited band bringing great musicianship, superb songwriting and pure joy to their performances for kids and all generations.
