Brad Maule was born in Rotan, Texas October 11, 1951. He grew up on a farm near Camp Springs in Scurry County Texas and attended a small country school that taught all 12 grades with a total of 150 kids. After elementary school he transferred to Snyder High School in Snyder. He is a singer and actor best known for his portrayal of Dr. Tony Jones on the soap opera General Hospital. He attended Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, graduating cum laude with a B.F.A. in theater.

Maule wrote and performed songs before he became an actor. He worked as backup singer for Bob Gentry, Jim Nabors, and Don Ho, among others, and has released a couple of albums. His first album of country-western music, called "Livin' It Up," received popular acclaim; and he has another CD/video on the market, titled "Chameleon." Soon after he journeyed to Los Angeles to get into the acting profession, where he was cast in many productions.

Maule first joined the cast of General Hospital in 1984, cast as Dr. Tony Jones, the brother of Frisco Jones (played by Jack Wagner (actor)). Maule's character was initially to die after a year on the show and Maule was to be written off the show, however, due to a campaign of fan letters, the powers that be decided to keep Maule on the show. Maule remained on the show on contract from 1984–2000, earning two Daytime Emmy nominations in the process in 1995 and 1997. However, in 2000, the show took Maule off-contract and he remained on the show in a recurring capacity until 2006 when his character was finally killed off. During his run on General Hospital, Maule also guest starred on the spin-off series, Port Charles on numerous occasions.
