The Browders: How Sweet The Sound

Written by Staff on February 7, 2016 – 9:20 am -

The Browders

The Browders

Twenty-five years ago, in the hills of Hiltons, Virginia, a unique and beautiful sound was born. It was a sound full of harmonies so close and sweet that they could only be connected by the blood of family. The sound produced words and songs that are full of hope and new life, words that point others to Jesus Christ. This sound became the music and ministry of The Browders, a family group that is rapidly gaining recognition and admiration in gospel music.

Tommy Browder, patriarch and founder of The Browders, grew up singing and writing gospel songs from a very early age. As an adult, he felt God leading him to start a ministry. “He felt the call to minister with his family. He prayed about it and God showed him what to do. We began singing in 1990,” says son Matt. “Actually, it all started in a 1990 Dodge Omni!”

Browders

Title Cut “Time Machine” Sixth Consecutive Number One

Hiltons, Virginia (September 25, 2015) Claiming the #1 spot on both the Absolutely Gospel Music Weekly Chart and the Singing News Monthly Chart for the title cut from their latest CD Time Machine, the Browders are living up to their name as a group who consistently produces number one songs.

Sitting at the number one spot for four consecutive weeks on the Absolutely Gospel Music Weekly Chart and landing at the number one spot for the month of November in the Singing News Monthly chart, “Time Machine” is a song straying from their usual Southern Gospel format, but still strong enough to climb to the top of both charts. Perhaps it’s because the message of the song is so strong, encouraging us to remember that we cannot go back in a time machine and we need to love our kids and family now and do what we are going to do for Jesus now, before our time runs out.

the browdersLead singer for the group, Matthew Browder commented, “The overwhelming support we have received in radio the last few years has been nothing short of miraculous. We are thankful for His favor on our lives and ministry.”

In addition to the success of their songs, the Browders are pleased to announce the addition of a live band now traveling with them. Sonya Browder has already been playing the keyboard on select song as well as Matthew, David, and Tommy Browder playing guitars on select songs now the addition of Burton Ludwig playing electric and acoustic guitar andDerek Cress on drums, they are displaying a full band and the sound is terrific.

Sonya stated, “For many years, we have had the desire to carry a full band on the road, but knew it would have to be in the Lord’s will and timing. Among the four of us, we already had acoustic lead, rhythm guitar, bass, and keyboard. So the addition of drums and electric lead is just the icing on the cake. It has given us the flexibility of playing songs completely live, and in the coming months, you will see us do even more of that.”

Burton Ludwig is 23 years old and Sonya’s brother, hailing from the great state of Maine. He started spending the summers with Matt and Sonya in Tennessee when he was just 15 years old. He would go on the road with The Browders, carrying equipment and help in any way he could. The summer he was almost 17, just before he went back home, Matt and Tommy showed him a few chords on the guitar. By the time he came back down the next summer, he had advanced tremendously and they found out he had been practicing nearly every day, teaching himself by watching YouTube videos. When he graduated high school, he joined the Browders full-time, for about 3 years. He took a year’s sabbatical to spend time with his mom and dad (who are nearly 80) back in Maine, but is now back on the road, more sure of his calling now than ever before.

Matt said “Burton joyfully did the menial tasks of loading equipment in and out and assisting us in any way he could for several years. I believe God saw his effort and heart and has gifted him and promoted him for his humble service. We’re thrilled he is part of the team.”

Derek Cress is 25 years old and has been in full-time ministry for over 5 years with an evangelistic team and Christian theater in our local area of Kingsport, TN. While the Browders were praying about adding a full-time drummer to their band, they had no idea that God was also speaking to Derek about taking his talent on the road. He contacted David Browder via Facebook stating that fact, and within a few months, he joined the group. He came highly recommended by the ministry he was formerly with and you can see why. He has a servant’s heart, and a genuine love for the Lord, as well as an undeniable calling.

Patriarch of the group, Tommy Browder added, “We are thrilled he is part of the team and it already feels like he’s one of the family.”

About The Browders

From their beginning traveling together as a family in a Dodge Omni car, to a successful music ministry with national hits, The Browders of Hiltons, Virginia are one of the most exciting groups to step on stage in many years. This family group consists of Tommy Browder, his sons, Matthew and David, and Matthew’s wife, Sonya. They travel year round, keeping a full concert schedule as well as holding revivals across the country. One of their most captivating qualities is that The Browders play much of their music live with Tommy on acoustic lead, David on bass, Matthew on rhythm guitar Burt on electric guitar, Derek on drums, and Sonya on piano. They also write most of their own music.

In recent years, they have been steadily expanding and improving their ministry for the glory of God. The were voted “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” in the prestigious 2013 AGM Awards. They have enjoyed Absolutely Gospel Music and Singing News #1 song charting success with their original songs.

Though things change throughout the years, their mission has remained the same—to bring hope to a lost and dying world and to encourage and challenge believers. They’re real and they’re anointed. We hope that in the near future you are able to attend or host a Browders’ concert to experience how God is working through this team.

The sound produced words and songs that are full of hope and new life, words that point others to Jesus Christ. This sound became the music and ministry of The Browders, a family group that is rapidly gaining recognition and admiration in gospel music.

As an adult, he felt God leading him to start a ministry. “He felt the call to minister with his family. He prayed about it and God showed him what to do. We began singing in 1990,” says son Matt. “Actually, it all started in a 1990 Dodge Omni!”

Matt and David Browder were young when they began traveling and ministering with their dad in 1990. Matt recalls, “At the age of 10 or 11, I began singing with Dad. Then, at the age of 13 or 14 I began to learn to sing three part harmony with the group. The Hinsons, Happy Goodmans, The Rambos, The Paynes, and The Crabb Family were huge influences throughout my life.” David notes several influences of his early years, too. “The people that influenced me the most musically were The Original Hinsons, The Happy Goodman Family, Teddy Huffam and The Gems, The Spencers, The Crabb Family, The Paynes, Charles Johnson and The Revivers, Singing Cookes, Elvis, Johnny Cash and Carman.” Just to name a few! David recorded his first song at the young age of eight.

In 2005, Sonya, Matt’s wife, joined the group. Sonya says, “I started piano lessons at age four due to my interest in a piano we were storing at our house for our pastor’s wife. I began singing and playing in church shortly thereafter. I started singing full time with a group based out of my home state of Maine at age 15. We were booked for a concert with the Browders in Tennessee around the year 2000, and our families became friends.   Matt and I married five years later.” Read more »

Matthew Browder

We asked Matthew Browder ..  What is your favorite Christmas Memory?

I have so many great memories, it’s hard to pick one. I love when family gets together. I’m a people person and I love just being together.
But I guess my favorite memory would be…..
I remember getting up and my brother David and I had bicycles setting in the living room.

Most the time you kinda know what your gonna get for Christmas but one particular Christmas morning, I woke up and walked into the living room to find an unexpected Christmas gift. It was a “rocking green” Huffy bicycle. It even changed gears. Now that’s probably my favorite memory of them all!

Fast Five with Matthew Browder

Written by Staff on August 25, 2014 – 4:22 pm -

Matthew Browder

Matthew Browder

At SGN Scoops we enjoy getting to know the artists just a little more, and we know our readers like to read about things they might hear from the stage. We have started a series called “Fast Five” where we will ask various artists their top five responses to various questions.

For this Fast Five, we went to The Browders who are quickly becoming a household name for those who love family harmony. This family from Hiltons, Virginia, has been singing for almost 25 years. In 2013, they celebrated three number-one hits on the Singing News Charts. They have earned two number-one hits with their current album, Time Machine. Last week they learned that they have earned their first Dove Award nomination for “Lift Up His Name” which was written by Matthew Browder.

We asked Matthew Browder to name five things he enjoys doing on his days off.

Matthew’s answers:

 

The Browders

The Browders

1. Writing songs – Matthew writes many songs which the Browders have recorded, several of which are included on Time Machine

2. Putt- putt – This apparently helps improve Matthew’s golf scores!

3. Golf – An integral part of every well-rounded Gospel artist.

4. Spend time with family – Even though Matthew travels with his family, he still enjoys being with them on his off-hours. “We are very family-oriented and I love being around family. It’s fun to get to travel and share ideas.”  [From a 2013 interview with SGN Scoops.]

5. Spend time with friends – The Browders are well known and well-loved amongst their peers. Donna King of Vertical Sky says, “The best thing about the Browders is that they are true friends and their very first goal, all day, every day in ministry, is to win souls for Jesus. I love them all and I am honored to work with them!”[From a 2013 interview with SGN Scoops.]

Special thanks to Matthew Browder for sending SGN Scoops his Fast Five answers.

The Browders Sign Publicity Agreement with AG Publicity

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on October 13, 2012 – 4:50 pm -

Top charting group, The Browders, have signed a comprehensive publicity agreement with AG Publicity. In recent years The Browders have had charting success with original songs like “Stand Up For Jesus” (peaked at #7, in top 20 songs of the year), “Waitin’ On My Change” (#14) and many others. With the release of their highly-anticipated, “The Message” recording came a milestone—their first #1 radio single, “Message of the Cross”. Deon Unthank, President of AG Publicity states, “With charting success like this The Browders are well on their way to becoming the premier group in Gospel Music and we are excited to be helping them reach that goal.” Unthank continued, “We are committed to bringing The Browders as much exposure to the Gospel Music world and beyond as is possible.” The Browders have the musical ability to capture the interest of every generation and a spiritual dimension that will bring revival to churches all across this land. Matthew Browder says “We believe with the help of AG Publicity to assist in spreading the word about us, we will see even greater success in the coming year.”

The Browders are a high energy group that can have you up standing and clapping while you’re feeling those spiritual goosebumps, and yet in the next song have you swaying to the worshipful sounds that will take you straight to the presence of God. AGP Client Relations Manager, Pamela Unthank, added, “When I first saw The Browders performing on stage, I knew that they were artists who had not yet reached their potential. I see God taking this young group to much higher levels and we are anxious to do our part to help them”.

The Browders recently raised money for the new CD they are recording by inviting fans to help by donating toward the Project. Deon Unthank reported, “With innovative ideas and more thinking out of the box, The Browders have right thinking for not only advancing their careers, but also the whole genre of Gospel music.”
