NASHVILLE, TN (April 24, 2020) – As the world quickly shifted, AVENUE BEAT anchored together at home nearly six weeks ago and reignited the same creativity that consistently drove them from their Quincy, IL roots to Nashville as teenagers. Between hosting weekly live streams, recording demos, crafting video content, learning TikTok dances and binging New Girl, the 20-something besties reconstructed six songs that have been on repeat. Lead singer Savana Santos produced the quarantine covers, highlighting Avenue Beat’s “celestial harmonies” (PEOPLE) and quirky messages bookending the project, available today on The Valory Music Co./Tape Room Records.

the quarantine covers Track List:
2. “say so” | recorded by Doja Cat
3. “video” | recorded by India Arie
4. “new light” | recorded by John Mayer
5. “humble and kind” | recorded by Tim McGraw
6. “just the two of us” | recorded by Grover Washington Jr. & Bill Withers
7. outro – “all you need is love” | recorded by The Beatles
The collection follows Avenue Beat’s self-penned “thank you anxiety,” which PEOPLE declared “a worthy candidate for the anthem of these COVID-19 times” as “the lyrics offer a much-needed lighthearted take on what’s now become a national preoccupation.” Watch the video here.
Beckoning listeners with glistening melody and lyrical truths, Avenue Beat’s 2019 self-titled EP prompted Sounds Like Nashville, Taste of Country, The Boot and NYCountry Swag to name them an “Artist to Watch.” Their tight harmonies and buoyant personalities also caught the attention of MusicRow 2020 “Next Big Thing,” Music Choice “Country Rising 20,” CMT ‘Listen Up’ 2020 and Next Women of Country Class of 2020. Avenue Beat’s angst-rejecting debut, “Ruin That For Me,” has garnered nearly 10 million global streams to date as the single rises at Country radio. Following back-to-back runs in 2019 with Mason Ramsey, Avenue Beat is tapped for Rascal Flatts FAREWELL: LIFE IS A HIGHWAY TOUR 2020.
