Anthony Brown & Group TherAPy
A Long Way From Sunday

  Anthony Brown & Group TherAPy have quickly emerged as a principal player in Gospel music. Possessing a superior stroke for songwriting and a premium skill set in music production, Anthony is the complete praise package. His last album, 'Everyday Jesus," solidified the new kid on the block as a bona fide worshiper with the chops to change the atmospheres in any church service. "Worth," quickly shot to #1 on Billboard's Gospel Music charts.
   "Everyday Sunday" garnered 10 Stellar Awards and their first Grammy, BET and Billboard Music Award nominations. "Worth" spent 27 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Gospel radio charts, generated over 12 million views on YouTube and close to 3 million streams on Spotify..
  Fans get more of what made Brown & Group TherAPy the Number One artist of 2015. The latest album, "A Long Way to Sunday" has enough variety to be interesting, while the songs weave together a narrative of God's love, compassion, kindness, faithfulness and beauty.
 
An obvious musical and vocal mastermind, Brown puts together sounds and styles that will be relatable to all audiences. From an animated track produced by Warryn "Baby Dubb" Campbell, husband of Erica Campbell, on "I Got That," to the worshipful hit lead single, "Trust In You," that debuted on Billboard's Gospel Music charts at #7 and remains in the top 10 six months later.
  It is all lyrical and cohesive.
 In addition, to the consistent exceptional vocals of group therAPy, Brown invited several friends to join him including Atlanta based powerhouse singer, Leandria Johnson on a beautiful ballad, "Consumed," and Sho Baraka on the pop urban song "Lost."

 The new CD features songs that weave together a narrative of God’s love, compassion kindness, faithfulness, and beauty.

  Another song that could follow "Trust In You" as the next single is “Every Time,” the anticipated collaboration with fellow stars Travis Greene & Jonathan McReynolds.
 
You'll also be hearing a lot in the coming months of “Never Alone” a classic-sounding Anthony Brown & group therAPy tune.

 Anthony Brown talks about “A Long Way From Sunday,” explaining that the title is for everyone who feels distant from God. In fact, we all have moments where we feel very far away from God, or when we haven’t been to church in a long time. But Anthony wants people to remember that, no matter when you’re feeling like that, or how often, you always can still get close to God.

  “Trust In You,” is a beautiful, personal and purposeful worship song that once again proves why Brown and group theraPy are considered among the top artists in the genre. Speaking to the unlimited vastness of who God is, “Trust In You,” is well crafted and as is the group’s signature, the vocals are impeccable.

  The response to the song has been swift and amazing. Program directors from around the country, have been raving about the current hit and are adding it to their rotations immediately.

  Here's a recent Q&A with Anthony...

  Q: When you have to time to pamper yourself or just relax, what are one or two hobbies, pastimes or activities that you enjoy doing?

  A: Treat myself? Everybody who knows me knows I am a big kid at heart. A big part of me...Of course, I have to grow up and be an adult, but I am a big kid at heart. I love to go to amusement parks. When I am down, you find me on a great roller coaster and I am the happiest guy in the world. That's what I love.

  Q: What city do you consider to be your home away from home? A place where you love to vacation or just kick it for a few days?

  A: I am from Baltimore, but when I can get away, I really love the vibe in Charlotte. For me, Charlotte is just the mixture of the slow country life. I like the slow pace down there, and the fact that, when I go to the South, people are just so nice and genuine. And the way they treat you! It is nice for me to get away. So, sometimes when I get away from the hustle and bustle, I will go down to North Carolina.

  Q: I am going to mention three or four names, and I want you to tell me what they mean to your music, your ministry and maybe to your relationship. First, Pastor John K. Jenkins.

  A: Wow, Pastor John K. Jenkins is a father for me. Well, I still have my dad with me. I am so grateful for my dad. Pastor Jenkins is like a second dad for me. He has literally challenged me to be who I am still becoming today. He loves my gifts, but he is more interested in my person and my character. I trust him with everything and I love him. I am blessed to serve there at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden. I don't think I would be where I am today were it not for Jenkins.

  Q: How about Maurette Brown Clark?

  A: Oh my goodness, everybody knows she is my mama. I am infatuated with everything Maurette Brown Clark. She is the epitome of a cheerleader and encourager. She literally lets me stand tall on her shoulders. And she is an artist herself. It's very rare to find an artist who is still relevant, and who would let somebody stand on their shoulders, on their platform, and push them farther than they can go. And that's literally what she does for me. I love her. She is my mom.

  Q: As part of your crew...Vashawn Mitchell and Tasha Cobbs.  

  A: Oh man, you've got all my people right now. Everybody knows Vashawn and Tasha are my brother and sister. I came to the industry. It can be a rough place. The ministry side is one thing, but the industry side is something totally different, and it can be a scary place, and it gets lonely as well. So Vashawn was really the first person that kind of like said, "Listen, I think I can help you to get a record deal." And he literally walked me into my first recording contract, which is unheard of. "You are Mr. Nobody, but go ahead and get done what you're doing."
  Having him look out for me along the way was huge. So he is still very much in my corner, and also one of my advice people. He gives me advice. He treats me like a little brother-like for real. We fight like brothers, but he has my back. And Tasha Cobbs is a blessing to the whole entire world. She is incredible. She is incredible as a believer and incredible as a voice. Nobody can sing like her. But she happens to be my friend and my sister. All three of us hang out and have a good time. So they are real friends, and I appreciate them.  

 Q: Speaking of voices, your vocalists in Group Therapy are phenomenal. Correct me if I am wrong, but aren’t you an alumnus of the prestigious Morgan State University? Are any of your singers also from Morgan State U?

  A: They are. They majority actually are, and that’s really where this whole ministry started. We would practice in the hallways of the Murphy Fine Arts Center at Morgan State. It wasn’t like an official thing, like “I am starting a group here.” It was more like, “Hey you, you, you and you, meet me after class, let’s sing a song.” That’s really how it all started. And so now here we are, 15 years later, still together and still doing it. That’s how we kind of started at Morgan State.

  First of all, I absolutely like these people. All are just incredibly distinctive voices. I have always been told my voice was distinct. I didn’t know how to take that, because I didn’t find anybody else like me, and I thought it was a bad thing. But eventually I learned that it was probably my greatest strength—that I didn’t sound like anybody else. 

  I mean, I like people who are absolutely relationship driven, I love them in real life, people who I know on a broader scale. But, man, you can’t deny once you hear it. I was just hoping that maybe these kinds of people would open up the door, the gateway, even in the streets. Because I believe in them and love them so very much.

 Q: Wow. So what are the ministerial or professional lessons that you learned in the forerunner to Group Therapy? I am talking about Answered Prayers. Were there things that you learned along the way that prepared you for this professional ministry that you have now with Group Therapy?

  A: Absolutely. A lot of the members of Answered Prayers are currently in Group Therapy. The change came with all of us, I think…we had some growing up lessons. Some of those lessons, really quickly, are that you have to invest and believe in yourself, even if nobody else does. A lot of people have visions. They believe in God, and believe that it is going to happen, but do they put in the work? Think about that. We can’t count on anybody else. When it comes to money, we must buy into what we want, and be willing to invest in ourselves. So that’s probably the biggest lesson we all learned.

  Two, I learned what my wife told me the day after I had a break into the industry, which is that if this was not for me—if it was not God ordained, not my calling in life—I should go get a job. Run the other way. Don’t waste my time. That’s what she told me. It blew me away, but that was the best thing she could have ever told me, because I had to really search God for myself, and say, “Lord, I know what I want in my life, but what do you want for my life? If that’s what you want me to do, then I believe you will open the door.”
  That was my prayer, and still is. I say it everywhere I go, to anybody I am talking to. Just to put it in prayer. “You know, God, if this is for me to do, then open the door, and I’ll know it’s You. And if it is not for me, shut the door in my face and let me go to where your door is open for me.”

  Q: Great. I want to ask my final two questions. The first is … serving in ministry in praise and worship, as well as an artist—how does that help cultivate both your ministry and your music for Group Therapy?

  A: Wow. It was hugely instrumental in helping to develop who I currently am as an artist, and how we handle Group Therapy. Stephen Hurd is an incredible worship leader, and I have watched him do it week by week for the past seven years. For me, that helped me to cultivate my own craft and sharpen my ability to not just sing, but to usher people into corporate worship. How do you draw people in, not to watch you sing, but to sing with you to the God whom we’re all singing about? It was really instrumental in that, and helped me get over the hunger for a platform. You know what I mean?

  Like, a lot of people are hungry for a platform, and I used to be the same way. I wanted somebody to hear me sing. But I sing in front of 4,000 people every Sunday. I am able to serve them every Sunday, and I believe that God has a heart for the sheep more so than for the stage. I think that’s really important—that you don’t get overwhelmed with things like who gets to be on the platform, or pleasing people. Instead, you can use the platform to bring attention to the Father.

(Everyday Jesus:
The Live Experience)


Everyday Jesus was recorded live at New Psalmist Baptist Church, in Baltimore MD to a capacity crowd earlier this year. It is jam-packed with 14 innovative tracks that range from urban inspirational and show-tunesque to high-energy praise, beautiful ballads and tried and true church music. "'Everyday Jesus' is a collection of songs for the everyday believer, literally they are songs for every season," said Brown. "As a Christian, I experience 'real life' scenarios that test my faith and pushed my creativity and writing to the limit. This album is full of songs for everyone ... they speak to every situation - whatever you are facing, wherever you are in life and whatever you need: There is a JESUS for that."
Includes the hit, "Worth"
