Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2011
Avenue 52, a Los Angeles based pop rock band, released today their first video titled Homeless in support of their efforts to increase awareness amongst the local L.A. community. A portion of the proceeds from Homeless, now available on iTunes, will be donated to homeless organizations throughout the L.A. area.
“Living and working in L.A., we see the issue of homelessness all over our city. We felt compelled to raise awareness and provide financial support to the organizations on the front line of this issue,” said lead singer, Tyler Aguirre.
“As artists in this community, we wanted to see if our efforts might spark the interest of other artists to join us or support the community in a similar way,” said lead guitarist, Sean Alexander.
Avenue 52, formed in 2009, is comprised of lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Tyler Aguirre, lead guitar and vocals, Sean Alexander, and drummer and background vocals by Beau Evens. The band’s core sound is pop melodies with rock undertones. They co-write and produce their own lyrics and music. The single, Homeless, was co-written by Sean Alexander, Drew Ryan Scott and Pascal Guyon.
“We want to reach out to our fans and music fans everywhere,” said Aguirre. “Our hope is to ignite the passion needed to confront and eradicate this global epidemic.”
