Experience the music of '70s rock duo Seals & Crofts in a whole new way. Hear the hits “Summer Breeze,” “Diamond Girl,” and “We May Never Pass This Way (Again),” artfully re-imagined with a reverent nod to the past. Seals & Crofts 2, comprised of Brady Seals (cousin to James “Jim” Seals) and Lua Crofts (daughter of Darrell “Dash” Crofts) will dazzle you on their debut album. The project will feature many popular Seals & Crofts classics, as well as new songs from Seals & Crofts 2. 

Singer/songwriter/artist Brady Seals has a pedigree for success. You could say that music is “in his blood,” as he is related to numerous industry heavyweights that include Jimmy Seals (Seals & Crofts), as well as Dan Seals (England Dan & John Ford Coley), and Troy Seals (Songwriting Hall of Fame Member). 

Throughout his career, Brady has sold over 11 million albums and Brady Seals is probably best known for his tenure in the 1990s as keyboardist and co-lead singer in the Grammy-nominated group Little Texas. Seals co-wrote three consecutive #1 songs for the band (“What Might Have Been,” “God Blessed Texas,” and “My Love”) winning him ASCAP’s Triple Play award. 

In 1996 Seals pursued a solo career, collaborating with the legendary Rodney Crowell to co-produce his Warner Brothers album, The Truth. It features a duet with Wynonna Judd, “Another You, Another Me” that sold over 100,000 singles. A self-titled CD followed in 1998 with guest appearances by Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Timothy B. Schmidt (The Eagles), Bela Fleck, and Max Carl (.38 Special). 

Seals returned to his band roots and formed Hot Apple Pie in 2002. The band quickly made history when they became the highest-selling debut country group in the Neilson Soundscan era. Their entry single “Hillbillies Love it in the Hay” went Top 20. The video shot to #1 on VH-1 Country and was among CMT’s “Top 20 Sexiest Videos.”  

In 2022 Seals signed with SM1 Music Group/Universal Music to release a brand-new musical project that he's been working on for years. Brady's first single, "I'd Really Love To See You Tonight" features John Ford Coley and Lua Crofts. 

 Talented and soulful vocalist Lua Crofts comes from the '70s era of rock royalty. The daughter of Dash Crofts of the hugely popular '70s duo Seals & Crofts, performers of such hits as “Summer Breeze”, “Get Closer”, and “Diamond Girl”, grew up in Los Angeles California right smack dab in the middle of the '70s and '80s music industry. 

Deciding to follow in her father’s footsteps, her first experience as a session singer was at the tender age of 7 years old when she accompanied both her mother and father on a song that would 

be featured on a popular children’s album. She would go on to become an in-demand session singer throughout the ’90s and early 2000’s in the Los Angeles area, singing background vocals on many popular R&B albums for artists like Rahsaan Patterson (MCA), Tevin Campbell (Qwest), Shanice Wilson (LaFace Records), Ray J (East West Records), Tamia Washington (Elektra Records) and many more. She was also featured on the smooth jazz track “Better Days” off of the legendary Producer/Guitar player Louie Shelton’s 1998 Jazz album “Hot & Spicy”. 

In ‘96 she toured the world as a background vocalist for Rahsaan Patterson’s self-titled album tour and again for his ’99 “Love In Stereo” album tour. She also traveled with Brady Seals for his ‘97 solo album tour, “The Truth” and it is here that Lua and Brady first worked together musically. 

She currently lives in Nashville Tennessee with her husband and children, continues to do studio session work, and sings/tours with the famous Nashville Gospel Choir, Eric Dozier and Friends.
