The Lore Family launched out into radio and digital ministry on March 6, 2009. Their first national release was the title cut of their first project, An Absolutely Good Day. Since that day, the tight, family harmony of The Lore’s, along with anointed, Bible-based originals have earned the group the recognition as an up-and-coming, new artist. The Lore Family have recorded three projects at Daywind Studios in Nashville, Tn. Their latest project, Mt. Testimony, was produced by Matthew Browder and Donna King. The country fell in love with this down to earth family as soon as The Lore Family sent out their first radio single, An Absolutely Good Day. This song was the theme song at WCNW in the Fairfield/Cincinnati area for over 2 years. The family’s fourth radio single, Come On and Praise Him became the groups first top 80 in the Singing News chart at #44. Their latest release, It Shall Be Well was their highest reaching song on the Singing News Magazine chart, when it peaked at #12. The family has had numerous other opportunities that God has given such as singing on The National Quartet Convention main stage for 4 years in a row, after winning show cases. They recently won a showcase at The Gatlinburg Gathering, which gave them the opportunity to sing on the main stage there. The Lore Family was also honored to be listed in the top 10 category for Favorite New Mixed Group of the year, 2015, in the Singing News Fan Awards. They have been featured on multiple radio shows, along with TV programs such as The Great American Gospel with Ed O’Neal. Although charts and awards are honoring, The Lore Family understands that charts come and go. Their main purpose for radio/TV ministry is to give a message of hope and encouragement to seekers and believers. As the Lord blesses, The Lore Family will continue to record and release quality, anointed Southern Gospel Music.
As the family has physically matured, they have sought to grow spiritually and artistically in the music and evangelistic ministry. Keep listening and watching The Lore Family Ministry. They ask you to include them on your prayer list and consider inviting them to your congregation or next venue. They would love to celebrate Christ and share their ministry with you!
