“These guys don't write a bad song - their most recent album "For the Broken" is fantastic from beginning to end. As any good album should, it takes you on a musical journey through upbeat catchy songs, softer more intimate songs and everything in between…these guys are about to hit it big!” Emerge Music Group

Last December, One Step Away was a featured artist in Alternative Press Magazine as an “Unsigned Band of the Month”. Numerous blogs and online magazines are placing their bets on One Step Away as the next “Break Out” artist.

“One Step Away has created a refreshing body of music that will surely reaffirm and seal them as Pop/Rock sensations.” SIR Magazine.

“From their opening song "Here We Go", lead singer Adam Carrington's voice propels their fine tuned sound into the same stratosphere as well established band Fall Out Boy. There's no looking back after that point.” Break Out Magazine

“We have seen and heard many up and coming pop-punk artists recently, but none have impressed us as much as Boston's One Step Away.” Rock on Request Magazine

“THIS BAND, *IS* Target Market 100%.” KmS RoX
