While Jim Brady and The Booth Brothers were evolving and rising to the top of the Southern Gospel Music ladder, one constant for Jim was his wife, Melissa. She faithfully supported her husband’s calling to The Booth Brothers, and the two enjoyed singing and ministering together in churches and concerts as well as writing music together as Jim’s schedule permitted. Jim’s schedule typically took him away from home more than 100 dates each year, but Melissa, too, found herself extremely busy.
In the summer of 2014, Jim and Melissa felt the time was right to answer a new call and to embark upon a brand new ministry. Thus came the announcement that Jim would be leaving The Booth Brothers to join his wife in forming The Jim Brady Trio.
Layke Jones completes the trio in an amazing way! He comes to the Jim Brady Trio amid high recommendations from some of the industry’s finest, including Bill Gaither, himself! Layke has been heavily involved in vocal work and is a highly sought after studio vocalist, having recorded vocals for artists such as Sandi Patty and Ernie Haase & Signature Sound. Recently, he was a guest vocalist on a project with the GRAMMY award winning Gaither Vocal Band.
Together this threesome is making astounding inroads into the Southern Gospel scene and is included in the Top Ten Singing News Fan Award nominations for Favorite Trio, Favorite Songwriter, Favorite Lead Singer, Favorite Soprano and Favorite Album.
Music for the Master is excited to provide Minnesota Southern Gospel lovers with their first opportunity to hear this new and already well-loved trio. And at Christmas, no less! Make sure you purchase your tickets today! Christmas concerts are always popular, but this one promises to be fun, exciting and memorable, as well!
Revive Brooklyn Park Church (7849 West Broadway, in Brooklyn Park) has been begging Music for the Master to return ever since we hosted Gordon Mote there three years ago! In the past this church has also been the site for The Hoppers and Sweetwater Revival concerts, to name a few. This biblically-based church appreciates the quality of the music our guests provide to their own church family, and we look forward to working with them to provide a warm and inviting ambiance for what we anticipate to be a time of entertainment and ministry that God will use in amazing ways!
