Record-Setting Browders Join Daywind’s Family of Artists
(Hendersonville, Tenn.) July 25, 2013 – The Browders, one of Southern Gospel’s most exciting new artists, has signed a long-term recording and publishing agreement with Daywind Records. Named “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” at the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards in 2013, the Browders are coming off a record-setting achievement. Their last album featured three #1 songs and an additional four top 10 songs during its run. Their new recording, Time Machine, is a year in the making and will release to Christian retail and digital outlets on Tuesday, August 6, 2013, through Daywind Records. Time Machine features the hit single “He Is Alive,” which debuted on the national radio charts at #34.
“Daywind is thrilled to focus our efforts on such a talented artist. The Browders have built a strong foundation for long-term success in Gospel music. From their songwriting skills to their energetic on-stage performances, they present the Gospel in a unique way to listeners of all ages,” said Ed Leonard, President of Daywind Records.
The Browders are excited to join a team centered around building their ministry. “Daywind shares our vision to reach as many people as we can for Christ through the songwriting, vocal, and musical talents God has given us. Although we have enjoyed the time spent developing our ministry independently, we are excited that the Lord has opened this door for us to enter a new season. We believe the best is yet to come,” shared Sonya Browder.
The Browders, based in Hiltons, Virginia, consist of Tommy Browder (acoustic lead), his sons, Matthew (rhythm guitar) and David (bass), and Matthew’s wife, Sonya (piano). The group performs a full slate of concerts and holds revivals across the country. For more about the Browders, visit www.thebrowders.com.

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 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. They have enjoyed Singing News 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”. They are currently performing songs from that recording as well as their hits and most-requested 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.
