    Biography :

    The Intruders were the first group to score hits with the songwriting/production team of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, and they  played a major role in the rise of Philadelphia soul. The guys were originally formed as a doo wop group in 1960, and sang around Philadelphia for several years.


    The original line-up of The Intruders was formed in 1960 by Sam "Little Sonny" Brown, Eugene "Bird" Daughtry, Phillip "Phil" Terry and Robert "Big Sonny" Edwards. The quartet began performing in a style that owed equally to doo-wop and gospel. In 1961 they released "Coming Home Soon" b/w "I'm Sold on You" on Gowen. The following year, as "The Four Intruders," they released "This Is My Son" b/w "My Baby."  In the late 1970' an old acetate of the Intruders doing "Goodnight" & "Sweet Girl" was found and released on the King Tut label.
