 BIO (pdf)


Jan , 2011, NY – BROTHERS IN CHRIST (BIC) release their third CD entitled, “It’s In The Word,”

BIC are on a mission to share the Gospel message through song, blending a quartet foundation with a contemporary flair. A group of men coming from various church backgrounds and gospel music influences (traditional, quartet, choir and contemporary), Earl Teemer, Ivan Jackson and Lance Bovain are experienced musicians, songwriters and vocalists uniting their talents as Brothers In Christ.

Their 2 previously released CD’s, “From The Heart” (2001) where Christ and Discipleship were the driving force and “Spreading the Message,” (2003) added a new sound comprised of praise songs, anthems and traditional gospel songs. Now get ready for the new 2010 release entitled “It’s In The Word.” This new CD will take you on a spirit-filled journey featuring all original material, harmonious vocals, and strong lyrical testimonies. It’s a unique “Quartemporary” blend.

This highly anticipated new release was produced by Brothers In Christ Ministry (BIC) and Co- produced by Ray Braswell, Jr. “It’s In The Word” is an uplifting testimony of BIC’s strengthened walk with Christ. When asked where the inspiration for their songs come from, they simply reply, “through our daily lives and our walk with Christ. Sometimes life takes you through some ups and downs and we have had our share since our last CD release. But during the process of creating this CD, we came to the realization that the healing we were looking for, It’s In The Word“.

Each member contributes to this CD, penning songs that speak to their own experiences. They each bring their own musical styles, thus creating a unique seamless blend that has formed the BIC sound - a sound that appeals to a multi-generational audience. Allow yourself to be ministered to by songs like “Jesus is the Answer”, “Be Encouraged,” and “Turn it over to Jesus.”

BIC has shared the stage with some of gospel’s greats i.e., Lee Williams and the Spiritual QC's, The Williams Brothers and the Canton Spirituals, just to name a few. 2009 brought BIC a “Stellar Award” nomination” for “Traditional Male Vocal of the Year,” with their contribution of two original songs on the Keith “Wonderboy” Johnson Presents, “The Rising Stars of Quartet” Volume 1 CD, released by Malaco Gospel.

Ray Braswell Jr., has once again rendered his awesome talent, co-producing this 3rd BIC release. He is a producer, keyboardist, writer, arranger, vocalist, percussionist, and bass player …just an all around musician. You’ve heard his work on Keith “Wonderboy” Johnson’s recordings, such as “Live & Alive” (2000), “Tribute to the Legendary Quartets” (2002), & “Send A Revival” (2003). Prior to touring and recording with Keith “Wonderboy” Johnson, he toured with “Charles Johnson and the Revivals” on the southern gospel scene. Braswell brings his creative innovative production skills and his gift of knowing how to bring the best out of the artists he works with.

BIC has experienced favorable responses from radio and audiences throughout the country with "From The Heart” and “Spreading the Message". They look forward to sharing their latest release CD, It’s In The Word“ with you.
