Being more up to date on the Christian Music and R&B market, there are times some music or artist slide by me… that is why my incredibly intelligent son keeps me CURRENT due to him being completely up on the new beats that ring out in the world today of music. A while back he introduced me to the sounds of a group of whom I term “Unconventional”. The amazingly talented and star developing Boyce Avenue.
This group of men are not only authentic and perfected in their own sound, they are making stars of the up n coming wannabes. This is truly an unselfish act within the music industry. So BRAVO. Thanking my son for introducing me to this group and will be staying on top of their music in the future. Who knows, there could be a GRAMMY® in the future for them. Here is a tid bit of information about these brothers.
After reading up on these guys and learning that this Florida-based band popular for its strong acoustic roots and melodic rock sound, AND consists of non other than three brothers Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano.
This BAND OF BROTHERS will be launching their TOUR this fall starting in the great city of New Castle West in Limerick, Ireland, The Knights of Westfest, Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 7:00pm. Check out their website and facebook page to see the other locations. We are planning to attend the concert in Chicago.
The brothers first came together as a band in 2004 when Alejandro (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Fabian (guitar, vocals), and their older brother Daniel (bass, percussion, vocals) reconnected after pursuing their respective educational goals. While music was always a part of their lives and ultimately their collective goal, pursuing a higher education was also important to the brothers.
After graduating from Harvard Law School, Daniel moved back to Florida, to join his brothers Fabian and Alejandro, who were both attending classes at the University of Florida. It was there that the brothers continued to write music and to perform local shows, and took their most formative steps toward becoming a band.
In 2007, in an effort to share their music and ideas with the world, the band decided to start filming and posting videos on YouTube of their own songs and some of their favorite songs by other artists. Some of the first few videos they posted included acoustic versions of songs such as Justin Timberlake’s “LoveStoned”, Rihanna’s “Umbrella”, and Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida”, among many others. The videos resonated instantly with YouTube viewers. And to date, the band has over 300,000,000 views on YouTube and over 700,000 subscribers to their channel, making theirs one of the most frequented channels worldwide on YouTube.
As well, they founded and run the recording label called @3PeaceRecords. Check out their website: boyceavenue.com and on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BoyceAvenue?fref=ts
