Brady Rymer

“If Dan Zanes is Kindermusik’s Bob Dylan, Brady Rymer may be its Jerry Garcia, drawing on his love of old-school folk, country, pop and blues to create ‘jamming’ sing-alongs for the under-10 set.” – AOL CityGuide

Brady Rymer was a founding member of the RCA roots/rock band From Good Homes, touring and recording with them for 13 years – and sharing the stage with the likes of Bob Dylan and Dave Matthews – before parenthood brought him off the road and into the world of children’s music.

Since 2000, when Brady released his first kids’ CD, Good Morning, Gus, he has risen steadily in the ranks of children’s performing artists, accumulating honors from Parents’ Choice, National Parenting Publications Association, Publishers Weekly, Dr. Toy,and iParenting Media for his CDs, Look at My Belly, I Found It! and Every Day Is A Birthday.

The New York Times proclaimed, “In the space of four CDs, Mr. Rymer has carved a niche for himself as a jam-band musician for the short-pants set.” Brady has been called “The John Hiatt of children’s music.”

Brady performs for families throughout the country with his Little Band That Could as a trio or in a full band format, rocking out with good-times musical celebrations filled with a powerful love and respect for children. In fact, children’s music authority Stefan Shepherd, heard on NPR’s All Things Considered, has called Brady Rymer’s Little Band That Could, “what might just be the best-sounding band in children’s music.”

“Although he tries to keep things sweet and engaging for the kids, his music has a rock ‘n’ roll heart.” – The New York Times

“Brady Rymer is the man-of-the-moment for the preschool set.” – New York Magazine
