Still working on that hot first release.



“I’ve always wanted to see what it would be like to take all
my favorite music genres and mix them together, while tearing down borders and
restrictions we set for ourselves. It just happens that we tried it… and oddly
enough it worked better than we could’ve imagined.” – Kenneth Evans

On the Avenue is an Alternative Pop / Rap Rock group hailing
from central Florida that was formed in October of 2013 by guitarist Kenneth
Evans, and front men Stevie Jackson and Aaron Forte. After many years of
working together in studios and collaborating on several projects, it was just
a matter of time before a project like OTA was born. Today, the group consists
of 5 members, and each musician adds their own unique style to the mix. Live
performances from OTA are energy filled and sure to entertain.

“We give it our all, every time we hit the stage. No
excuses, we just go in!  I don’t feel as
though I’ve done my part unless I can barely walk off stage on my own. We do it
for our fans, and will continue to do so until we have nothing left to give.”  - Stevie Jackson

OTA’s debut freshman album “Champion” was released January
of 2014. This album showcased a large variety of what the group could do. From
rock, rap, r&b, and pop, this album had it all. After a year of performing
the album, OTA’s fan base started to grow, and it was clear they had something special.

“We inspire each other to make the music that we create. You
can tell by looking at us that we’re not one dimensional, and we’re proud of
that. We have literally taken musicians from different style backgrounds, put
them in a room, and made something that shouldn’t work, work effortlessly. We
want to change the idea of what music should be, and show the world what music
can be. We think of ourselves as a family, and with our fans, we together make
up the #OTAFAM.” – Aaron Forte

On the Avenue is comprised of Stevie Jackson (vocals/rapper),
Aaron Forte (lead vocals), Kenneth Evans (guitar/vocals), Danny Ray Bowling (bass),
and Lawrence Butler (drums).

The band has shared stages with the likes of Cage the
Elephant, Bear Hands, Cisco Adler, and more. Performed at the 2014 Vans Warped
tour, 2015 Red Gorilla Music fest in Austin, TX (SXSW), and won the 2014 Hard
Rock Battle of the Bands for the Tampa Bay Florida Region, and was named the #BuzzBand of the
year at the 2015 Florida Music Festival.
