The 5 Browns Score Another #1 Billboard Chart Debut!
New RCA RED SEAL Album 'No Boundaries' Lands The Top Spot in Its Debut Week of Release!
Confirming once again their emergence as the new champions of classical music, The 5 Browns have repeated the success of their self-titled debut recording for RCA RED SEAL with the April 4 release of No Boundaries, their all-new second album that rules the Billboard Traditional Classical Chart at No. 1 in its first week of release. It also debuted on Billboard Heatseekers Chart at No. 16. Their debut album also skyrocketed back into the #2 position.
The 5 Browns are brothers and sisters -- Ryan, 20; Melody, 21; Gregory, 23; Deondra, 25; and Desirae, 27 -- who are all serious, ambitious Juilliard-trained concert pianists. Performing together, individually and in different combinations, they have created a unique phenomenon in classical music that is reflected in the title of their new album. Their debut album wowed critics and audiences alike, spent 8 weeks in the No. 1 spot and led Billboard to rank the talented quintet as one of the Top Classical Artists of 2005, with the No. 2 Top Classical Album of the year.
No Boundaries hit the stores on April 4, on CD and as a Dual Disc, which includes three music videos featuring all five pianists in new arrangements of the unforgettable melodies of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, Stravinsky's The Firebird, as well as the new work Simple Gifts/Going Home -- variations on Copland's Shaier Hymn "Simple Gifts" from Appalachian Spring and Dvorak's "Going Home" theme from his Ninth Symphony. These 3 works are also featured on the album. They celebrated the release day with a SRO crowd at Borders, Time WarnerCenter with Entertainment Tonight Television covering the event.
Currently on tour across the U.S., The 5 Browns recently performed on: Entertainment Tonight Television, ABC's The View, Martha Stewart's television show Martha, The Tony Danza Show and A&E's Breakfast with the Arts and will appear on NBC's Weekend Today next month. They are featured in the current issue of Elle Girl Magazine and Entertainment Weekly Magazine and Reader's Digest. Over the next weeks they will be featured in Cosmo Girl Magazine, Teen Magazine; Keyboard Magazine, Time Magazine for Kids and will hit the SIRIUS Satellite Radio's airwaves on the new "Martha Stewart Living Radio" and much more.Photo: NewsCom: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20060412/NYW100
