The Ball Brothers (2006-2023)


The Ball Brothers grew up in Illinois. They came to national prominence in 2006 after touring as the opening act for Signature Sound's 2006 Summer Tour. In their early years, the group consisted of four brothers: Andrew Ball, Daniel Ball, Stephen Ball, and Josh Ball. Josh initially ran sound for the group, but he later joined his brothers on stage as a vocalist.

In 2012, baritone Stephen Ball left the group due to a degenerative hearing condition. He was replaced by Andy Tharp. Also in 2012, Josh Ball left the group and was replaced by Chad McCloskey. In 2015, Tharp left the group and Jon Epley (former Inspirations bass/baritone) took his place. The addition of Epley's deeper range gave the Ball Brothers the option of singing some arrangements in a more traditional quartet style. In early 2023, the Ball Brothers announced they would cease touring at the end of July 2023.
