Brad Hopkins shares his always-timely observations through insightful songwriting and pure rock performances rooted in 20 years on the Canadian music scene. 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). Chalk Circle toured North America and Europe and opened for such acts as Crowded House, Rush and Tears for Fears. Hopkins began work on his first-ever solo release, World’s Biggest Fan (2003). The record was recorded over a two-year period in Toronto. The album features a wide variety of influences that lyrically address a reflection of the times and personal experience.
