Brash. Bright. Fresh. Wildly melodic. Avenue Beat are three girls from Quincy, Illinois, who grew up ingesting social media platforms and theater groups – and turned into the notes of a chord that lands somewhere between Taylor Swift ascending and Billie Eilish at her most real. The genzennial collective of Sami Bearden, Savana Santos and Sam Backoff are strong, smart, fun – in love with life, each other and getting on with it …fresh face of new feminism, while blowing off being told who girls are supposed to be. Avenue Beat’s debut self-titled EP is available now via The Valory Music Co./Tape Room Records and was co-produced by lead singer Savana, David Garcia and Ashley Gorley. With the stretched staccato vowels of the hilarious self-empowering “Delight,” sisters-sticking-together euphoria of “Be A Bro,” angst-rejecting post-breakup “Ruin That For Me” or their self-induced euphoria of “Broke,” Avenue Beat beckons listeners with pillows of narcotic harmony, glistening melody and lyrical truths. Named an Named an “Artist to Watch” by Sounds Like Nashville, Taste of Country, NYCountry Swag and more – the trio was selected as a MusicRow 2020 “Next Big Thing,” Music Choice “Country Rising 20” and joined CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2020.
