Orange Avenue / Press

“You can call it emo, you can call it rock, you can call it pop-punk, but in the end, pop music is pop music, and Daytona Beach, Florida's Orange Avenue make some really, really catchy pop. Led by frontman Derek Anderson, this Florida five-piece started out in 2007, with a spunky, self-titled debut LP. After sharing stages with acts ranging from Rihanna to All-American Rejects, the band returned to the studio to record last year's excellent Reset EP. And while it wasn't a complete break, or new start, it did represent a decided leap forward in songwriting and production. While their music has the energy of punk, it has the sheen of the best radio pop, calling to mind the likes of Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox Twenty. Anderson has a great way of matching melody to lyrics. And nowhere is this more evident than on the soaring "This Time Baby."”

"Orange Avenue is definitely one of 2011’s up-and-coming bands…this band has huge breakthrough potential. Keep your ears open, because you definitely don’t want to miss this sound.”

Hits Magazine

“What can I say about Orange Avenue's self-titled CD? Perfect power pop, laced with piano, three part harmonies and great percussion accents all flowing within tight, commercial, polished songs that should be on the radio or a soundtrack or an MTV reality show immediately.”

“Orange Avenue creates intimacy with their lyrics to make them seem like they are singing to the hearts of every person in the audience.”

Gil Mojo - Backstage Pass Magazine

“... their band is on the cusp of what looks like a real breakthrough.”

“Their songs were incredibly radio friendly, along the lines of All American Rejects and Yellowcard. They also seemed to have a bit of Brit-pop influence similar to Oasis' more upbeat hits.”
