Armed with an abundance of talent and fueled by an unwavering commitment to spreading the gospel, The Browders are rapidly becoming one of Christian music’s most acclaimed groups. The family band’s previous album spawned three No. 1 singles and paved the way for their Daywind Records debut Time Machine, which has yielded a record-breaking seven #1 hits.
“I’ve always been a big dreamer and I walk in expectation every day because I know we serve a great big God,” Matthew Browder states with a smile. “Dad taught us to dream big. We believe if you have a dream, you need to go after it. With eleven No. 1 singles, several top tens and top fives, God has blessed us and I know that the best is yet to come.”
Time Machine showcases the talents of the entire Browder family with father Tommy, brothers Matthew and David and Matthew’s lovely wife Sonya each taking a turn on lead vocals. “We really feel like it is music for the whole family,” says Sonya. “There is something that every age group can enjoy because it’s music of yesterday and it’s music of today. That’s part of the reason we named it Time Machine. It’s a musical journey.”
The album opens with Matthew taking lead on the worshipful “Lift Up His Name” and continues with such potent tracks as the foot-stomping anthem “Listening for the Shout” featuring Tommy on lead vocals and the poignant ballad “He Took the Nails,” on which Sonya delivers an emotional performance. Whether it’s a high energy up tempo tune like “Pick Me Up,” featuring David on lead vocals, or the harmony-laden #1 hit single “He Is Alive,” the album is filled with songs that are spiritually substantive and musically engaging.
