The Brad Hopkins Sound
Driven by his desire to write and perform his own songs in his own style, Hopkins began work on his first-ever solo disc, World's Biggest Fan (fall 2003). The album was recorded over a two-year period at Chemical Sound and Lucid Sound in Toronto. The eleven-song album features a wide variety of influences that lyrically address a reflection of the times and personal experience. Catchy pop hooks shine through in songs like I Wonder and Higher Ground. The alt-country rock sound of This Game(The Hockey Song) is sure to get your feet moving. John Sakamoto from Eye Magazine in Toronto calls You and Me and New York City " an exuberant paradox".

The integrity of Hopkins' songwriting and the passion of his live performances strike a chord with fans who, like the songwriter, prefer their rock'n roll to be original and flavored with an edge.
Remember the 80's?
Best known as a founding member and bassist of Chalk Circle, Hopkins and his band-mates grew from their roots as a committed garage band in Newcastle, Ontario to achieve prominence as an alternative act in the '80s. The band stayed the course from 1983 until 1990 and enjoyed success with such releases as The Great Lake (1986), platinum-selling Mending Wall (1987) and As the Crow Flies (1989).
In a band renowned for its high-energy live performances and stellar songwriting, Hopkins was instrumental in steering Chalk Circle through its evolution from a teenage passion to a solid musical voice. Chalk Circle toured North America and Europe and opened for such acts as Crowded House, Rush and Tears for Fears. The band enjoyed a diverse following that crossed boundaries of musical trends and styles.
A Rock Veteran
Hopkins songwriting continued as a member of the Headstones where he co-penned the song "Absolutely" on their gold-selling release, Picture of Health (1992). Hopkins passion for hockey led to his next musical endeavor when he hooked up with a group of neighborhood hockey enthusiasts who invited him to join Nothing in Particular and contribute to their release, Is That Right (1995). The group showcased in New York City at 1995's CMJ Festival, and at the infamous CBGBs. Later in the decade, Hopkins joined Edmonton singer-songwriter Marshall Tully's band and contributed songwriting, bass playing and vocals to the release, Always (2000).
