The American rock band known as Boyce Avenue was established in Sarasota, Florida in the mid 2000’s, by founding members and brothers Fabian Rafael Manzano, Daniel Enrique Manzano, and Alejandro Luis Manzano. The three brothers united to form their first band in 2004, but the endeavor was paused while Daniel graduated from Harvard Law School and Fabian and Alejandro completed their studies at the University of Florida.
In 2007, the trio reunited and began posting performances of their work to a YouTube channel; they also began posting acoustic covers of hits such as Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” and Justin Timberlake’s “LoveStoned.” In 2009, Boyce Avenue launched their first nationwide tour, and the group has been touring throughout the world ever since, performing in not only the United States, but also Canada, Europe, Australia, and even Indonesia.
The group’s popularity eventually caught the attention of Universal Records, which signed the group and released the debut album All You’re Meant to Be (2009.) But one year later, the label dropped Boyce Avenue, and the group instead established their own independent label, 3 Peace Records, through which they released their follow-up album, All We Have Left (2010.) This time, the album rose into the top ten on the US Heatseekers charts, paving the way for the group’s endeavors since.
To date, Boyce Avenue has released the additional top-ten Heatseekers albums No Limits (2014) and Road Less Traveled (2016), earning the group two Teen Choice Award nominations (for Choice Web Star: Music) and an Unsigned Music Awards: UMA Icons Award in 2016. Clearly, Boyce Avenue is on the rise and a trio to keep an eye on in years to come. The group’s YouTube channel, still up and running, now boasts more than six billion views with over ten million subscribers.
