O-TOWN

  • O-Town’s story began in 1999, when TV network, ABC, produced the very first musical reality show in major network history. “Making the Band” was produced in conjunction with Lou Pearlman, creator of both the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC . The show chronicled the creation, development, and rise to success of O-Town throughout three seasons of the series; the first two on ABC and the final season on MTV. The group became the first to be signed by Clive Davis to his label, J Records, and released two full-length albums, which included #1 singles, “Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing”. The latter of which was nominated for “Song of the Year” at the Radio Music Awards in 2001. By 2003, O-Town found themselves amidst an industry that was beginning to experience dramatic changes, former mentor, Lou Pearlman’s, legal battles and eventual conviction regarding embezzlement of more than $300 million, as well as acomplex contract that left the group in dire financial strain. “We really had little choice but to close up shop at that point”, Jacob explains. “We learned so much during those 4 years, but it was obvious the time had come to walk away, hoping we could do it again one day, differently”. Reunited in 2014 as a four-piece, following the departure of member, Ashley Parker Angel, band members Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick, Dan Miller and Erik-Michael Estrada, released their third studio album, “Lines & Circles”, and set out on a national tour for the first time in 10 years in support of the album. They spent the summer of 2016 on the MY2K Tour, with artists 98 Degrees, Ryan Cabrera, and Dream. They also performed alongside the likes of New Kids on The Block, Boyz ll Men and Paula Abdul for the 5th Mixtape Festival, held in July 2016 in Hershey, PA. Additionally, the groupmade their acting debut starring in Backstreet Boy member, Nick Carter’s cult film, “Dead 7”, amongst members of all of the generation’s biggest boy bands, which was premiered on the Sy-Fy channel. LFO: LFO burst onto the scene in 1999 with the #1 smash hit "Summer Girls" and followed with another top-five hit in "Girl on TV" and the top-ten hit, "Every Other Time." Today, lone surviving member Brad Fischetti keeps the name of LFO alive, performing the songs to fans, new and old.
