PrettyMuch at Fillmore Detroit, 3 Things to Know

PrettyMuch is in the early "Phases" of its career, but the Los Angeles-based vocal quintet is certainly making forward progress.

Formed during 2016 by "American Idol" and "America's Got Talent" judge Simon Cowell, the fivesome has so far released two EPs, including this year's "Phases," and has collaborated with French Montana and Rich the Kid. PrettyMuch recently dropped a new single, "Lying," with Lil Tay.

Currently Pretty Much is in the midst of its largest headlining tour yet, and the group is only expecting bigger things lay ahead...

Edwin Honoret, 20, says by phone that PrettyMuch's current tour "has been really special for us. It's the first time we kind of created a tour from the ground up. Brandon (Arreaga) MD's music directed the entire show. All of us creative directed it, so it was just dope to see our vision come to life and for our concept to be on stage and to have all the fans just appreciating the tremendous amount of work we put into creating a show and really showcasing the possibilities of what we can do as artists, live. I think the most rewarding part about being an artist is getting on stage and having all these people sing back to you the words you were writing in a room with other people."

"Lying" was created with producers Oak and JHart and Honoret says the group "was excited to jump in and get on the session with them. They had the hook already, and once we heard that chorus we were super-excited to write the verses and the pre-chorus. And once we found out Lil Tay wanted to get on it, it was just bettering itself as time went on. Once we started playing it live before the song came out fans were super, super, super excited. By the second time we knew it would work. That means a lot."

Looking ahead PrettyMuch has another new single coming with CNCO and expects to be releasing one track at a time rather than EPs or albums. "We're taking different routes with the songs we're releasing just because we realize in the music industry there are no rules now. If we want to drop a Latin-infused song, we're gonna do that. If we want to drop a more rap-influenced song, we're gonna do that, too. We don't want to keep ourselves in a box. We're all from different backgrounds, different musical tastes. We're just trying to better ourselves, so whatever the next release is we just hope it's better than the last one. We want to appeal to everyone. We want everyone to be fans of PrettyMuch."

PrettyMuch performs Saturday, July 27, at the Fillmore Detroit, 2115 Woodward Ave. Doors at 6 p.m. $20. 313-961-5441 or thefillmoredetroit.com.
