Boyce Avenue: My Tribute
Boyce Avenue: Continuing The Series
In continuation with the series on Cover Artists, I have chosen to dedicate this next tribute to the group Boyce Avenue. Unlike the last tribute I gave to Sam Tsui, this group has performed many original songs as well. But, their Music Covers are the songs I would like to introduce you to in this hub.
Before I share their music and background, I feel compelled to speak to all of you women out there! Many a lady have found this group of guys to be quite attractive; so I am warning you before you listen to their videos! All right, now that I have made that clear, I hope you enjoy this tribute to Boyce Avenue, a music band that has warmed my heart over the past few months. All I can say is that I wish I had found them out sooner! So, I am doing my duty by getting their name out to all of my friends!
Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, and cats and dogs(have I left anyone out?), I present to you Boyce Avenue!
A Video Sample For You To Enjoy
For this Cover Artist, I am going to start off by sharing a sample of their Cover Music before I delve into their background and career. This is best way I can convey to you how truly amazing this group is. Their ability to beautifully portray themselves through music is obviously noticeable in any of their songs
So here you a go, a glimpse into the beauty that is Boyce Avenue!
Just To Give You A Taste Of Their Music!
Boyce Avenue: Background
Before I mention the history of this group, I feel that is important to mention that this group consists of three brothers, Alejandro, Fabian and Daniel Manzano.
Boyce Avenue is a music group based out of Sarasota, Florida. Their "humble beginnings" took place back in the year of 2000 when Alejandro(14) and Fabian(16) took up guitar together. A few months later, they joined their older brother Daniel(20) and sang at Pine View High School in front of a 350 person crowd. This marked the beginning of several concerts they would hold there, the school that they attended growing up.
In the years to follow, Boyce Avenue was split up because of different college locations and then reunited back in 2005 when they played their final concert at Pine View. Following the reunion, Boyce Avenue recorded three singles at Nickel and Dime Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. At the end of 2007, they had recorded their first music album.
This brings us to their debut on YouTube, the year of 2007. And as they say, The rest is history!
Below Is Another Amazing Video
This video is a cover of One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful". In my Music Cover's Hub, I stated that Cover Artists will usually sing the song in a different style. I mentioned that this is one of the many reasons why I enjoy Music Covers, because it provides me with a change is musical scenery. This song below does that exact thing.
I love One Direction and their ability to draw in the teenage audience with their pop sound. However, Alejandro's ability to change the style of this song and make it romantic is undeniably impeccable/flawless! Listen for yourself!
Sung By Alejandro Manzano In His Own Style

Well, there you have it! A glimpse into the Cover Artist Band Boyce Avenue! Like I mentioned earlier, I really wish I have found these guys sooner. They have warmed their way into my heart and I would not be surprised if they quickly take the place of my most favorite Cover Artist on YouTube!
Why do I enjoy listening to this group? I love their ability to change the style of the music they sing. I also admire them for all of the original music they sing as well. Since this is a Music Cover Hub, I chose not to add a video on one of their original songs. However, I have a added a link to the right which is Boyce Avenue's original song, "Find Me".
I hope you have enjoyed the second Cover Artist in this series of Music Covers! Boyce Avenue is a gifted group with a powerful voice and talented musicians. I hope you do find some time to listen to more of their music! Have a great day friends, and when you get a chance, you should make a playlist of Boyce Avenue Music!
