New Avenues

New Avenues was formed in 2019 with members that were split between Dallas and Toronto. The group has grown to include members from all over the U.S. They started writing songs via facetime before perfecting the final product in person. The result is their EP Driving Far Away, which is where you’ll find the song “Dallas Traffic.”



The retro-soul group is fronted by Fort Worth native Luke Wade. Watch for their self-titled full-length album (out now!), and enjoy this stripped-down live performance of “Losers” that was shot in one take at 64 Sound in Los Angeles, CA.



Motorcade’s new album is called See You In the Nothing and just dropped last week . Good news~ You can see the local legends performing live at Good Records for Record Store Day on April 23rd!
