Two members of Seals & Crofts family coming to Spencer
FOR HUB CITY TIMES
SPENCER — A bit of Nashville comes to the LuCille Tack Center on Friday, Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m. when rock ‘n’ roll royalty, Brady Seals and Lua Crofts, bring the re-imagined hits of their kin to Spencer.
Featuring the sounds of 70s rock duo Seals & Crofts, this talented pair will offer their versions of “Summer Breeze,” “Diamond Girl,” and “We May Never Pass This Way (Again),”each with a reverent nod to the past. They will also share their own collaborations in an intimate evening sure to warm the audience on a cold winter night.
Singer/songwriter Brady Seals has a pedigree for success. One could say that music is “in his blood,” as he is related to numerous music industry heavyweights that include Jimmy Seals (Seals & Crofts), as well as Dan Seals (England Dan & John Ford Coley).
Over the course of his career, Brady has sold over 11 million albums and is probably best known for his tenure as keyboardist and co-lead singer in the Grammy-nominated group, Little Texas. Seals co-wrote three consecutive No. 1 songs for the band (“What Might Have Been,” “God Blessed Texas,” and “My Love”), winning him ASCAP’s Triple Play Award.
Most recently, Brady 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 notable hit makers.
Talented and soulful vocalist Lua Crofts is the daughter of Dash Crofts of the hugely popular 70’s duo, Seals & Crofts. Lua grew up in Los Angeles, California, smack dab in the middle of the 70’s and 80’s music industry.
Deciding to follow in her father’s footsteps, Lua’s first experience as a session singer was at the age of seven, when she accompanied both parents on a song that would be featured on a popular children’s album. She would later become an in-demand session singer in the Los Angeles area throughout the 90s and early 2000s, singing background vocals on many popular R&B albums. Lua first worked musically with Brady Seals on his ’97 solo album tour, “The Truth.”
Currently living with her husband and children in Nashville, Tennessee, she continues to do studio session work, as well as singing and touring with the popular Nashville Gospel Choir, Eric Dozier and Friends.
