Tommy Brothers

Tommy Brothers grew up in the music business. His father Ronnie Brothers owned and operated the group Sidewinder from Raleigh North Carolina. At the age of 11, Tommy was introduced to the art of recording music and received his first guitar. With his father's assistance, Tommy recorded his first album in 1993 with the Wilmington, NC, band Greenhouse. Greenhouse toured the Southeast in the mid 1990s. In 1999 he and his partner opened Audio Genesis recording studio in Wilmington NC. Some of Audio Genesis's more notable clients were Andre' 3000 (OutKast,) Macy Grey, Tom and Mike Gossin (Gloriana), Tyler Hilton, Weedeater, ASG, Angie Aparo, Craig Woolard Band, Mark Roberts Band, Medusa Stone, Katie Holmes (Dawson's Creek), and Bethanny Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill). Audio Genesis closed in 2013 after many successful years. In late 2014 Tommy and Tony Brannock decided to turn Tony's Guitars into a professional recording facility.
