Very probably- Brady started in Vaudeville in the early 1920's about the time her discs were made.

Here is her surviving Vitaphone and one of her discs, so you can compare her voice - sounds the same to me:

Thanks for posting this and the short and song. I had never heard of her or never have found a record of hers. Seems according to Brian Rust this was her only record on Edison. Nice voice and I enjoyed seeing her sing too. Thanks! Neil
