According to members of Avenue Trio, they “see music as an avenue in which to share the greatest story ever told.”
Southern Gospel artist, Avenue is a newly formed trio with established members within their genre. Based out of Nashville, Tennessee, group members Kasey Kemp, Corey Lackey and Jacob Lagesse come together combining their musical gifts to form this new ministry. The ministry focus is endorsed by their choice of name for this new entity which displays the mission that their music is the avenue by which they proclaim the greatest message there is – the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The debut project from the trio titled, Songs For Every Mile, released in June 2018. As a project, the album manifests their big sound with strong vocals and messages of encouragement and hope for listeners. Avenue has partnered with established industry leaders such as Song Garden Music, serving as their record label, and booking representation by the Dominion Agency. Avenue can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and various other media outlets
