"O-Town's Jacob Underwood Teams With Hot Newcomer Chandler Bay" - Perez Hilton

Article about Jacob's new cover video with Chandler Bay, "I Hate You, I Love You". Read below or click here for the original article.

Jacob Underwood has traded those hunky guys from O-Town for a sexy brand new star named Chandler Bay!

In case you haven't heard it, the duo chose Gnash's emotional i hate u, i love u as the soundtrack to their coming out party, and between Chandler's smoky tone and Jacob's perfect harmonizing, it's one tight cover.

And we have the exclusive premiere of their first music video!

This is just the beginning for Jacob and Chandler. After some industry interest in what was supposed to be a fun one-off, the pair are exploring the side project even more!

So how did these two kids start making music together??

Jacob revealed the kismet in their meeting:

"I found Chandler Bay singing in a bar in Nashville and knew I had to get her in the studio immediately. First, we did a Chainsmoker cover, then a radio DJ friend of mine, Frankie V. for Jammin 95.7 in San Diego, had the idea for Chandler and I to do this Gnash duet, so we went right in the studio to see how we'd sound together. Chandler is an inspiring talent with an absolutely incredible voice. I don't think either of us expected our voices to blend as well as they did, and it's started us talking about doing more songs together in the future. I think it'd be a smart move :)"

But he wasn't the only one who felt the "magic" — Chandler said:

"Working with Jacob gives me a confidence and comfortability I hadn't found working with past producers or artists. When we first talked about doing a duet I was unsure how our voices would blend, but when I heard the final product there were moments I honestly couldn't tell us apart.
I think we found some magic while we recorded this one, and I think this is only the beginning of us making music together!"


Ch-ch-check out the video for i hate u, i love u (above) and get ready to hear a lot more from these two!

(Oh, and don't worry — O-Town's next album is still on target for early 2017!)

O-Town is making a new album thanks to their fans. The band raised over $60,000 through a Kickstarter campaign for the 4th album.

“For the first time in our bands history we are going to rely completely on our supporters to start this new chapter by looking to you to put us in the studio,” the group said on their Kickstarter page. “Our 4th album will be financed 100% free from any label, which allows us to make our music directly for and responsible to only one party; you, our fans.”

Fans have different donation packages to choose from, starting from $25 – which will get you to download the album before it’s released, to $10,000 – which will get you a private concert, tickets & VIP passes for a year, named as an executive producer and of course, download the album before it’s released.

Rewind Con rewound our metaphorical VHS tape of memories this weekend. While some of us may be showing our age by what bands we remember most from our childhood, it’s safe to say we all enjoy a good pop song now and again. Rewind Con was held in Chicago and brought together AJ McLean and Howie Dorough of the Backstreet Boys, as well as select members from NSync, O-Town, and 98 Degrees. There was also a special tribute to Paul Walker and a chance to see movie and soap opera stars.

Not everyone can be a Kickstarter success story. But O-Town has proved that they are exceptionally special and people love them for their work in music industry.

O-Town, the American band that was formed in 2000 during the first season of MTV's 'Making the Band'is set to release a fourth album and it is all possible with humble donation of their fans. The band separated in 2004, but reunited again in 2014 without main member Ashley Parker Angel. This was the same year when the band released their third album, 'Lines and Circles'.

Let me give this another shot: If you want it all or nothing at all, get ready to have it all (and by “it all” I mean “a new O-Town CD”). As Us Weekly reports, a fourth O-Town album is underway.

Over the weekend, 90’s all boy-band Otown launched a Kickstarter for their fourth album.The group revealed that this is the first time that they are creating an album free of any label. They noted:

otown-1“We decided to take on the challenge of reviving Otown, a brand that had been lying dormant for a decade. It was not easy, by any means, but together along with our family, our fans, and a chosen few, we created the album Lines & Circles. We had no idea that taking that leap of faith would lead to such gratification and an overwhelming response by our audiences, our listeners, and even critics. The reaction has been unlike anything we’ve ever experienced in our careers, ever. So together, as a group, we made the decision that we can’t stop now.”

10.03.2016 | Markos Papadatos

Pop group O-Town has launched a campaign to help fund their new studio album, and they surpassed their goal in just seven hours.


In less than seven hours, they surpassed their goal of $47,500. Most impressive was that they were able to accomplish this simply with the Internet and the strong support of their fan-base. They wanted to do this project without any record label, and to make the new music solely for their fans.
The funds that are raised from this Kickstarter campaign will be used for the production and distribution of their fourth studio album, which will be released in the spring of 2017.

They were the first band to find success via a reality television show entitled "Making The Band." This past summer, O-Town toured with Dream, Ryan Cabrera and 98 Degrees on the My2K tour, which featured tour stops in 39 cities throughout America. In 2014, O-Town had released their comeback album, Lines and Circles.

The boy band explosion hit Los Angeles in full force, so we snapped some photos.


This one’s for all of you late-90s/early 2000s pop music lovers,wherever you are. Get ready to take a trip down Memory Lane, because 98 Degrees, O-Town, Ryan Cabrera and Dream came together on one stage for My2K Tour to get you in all of your boy band-loving feels. It's been a while since the musicians have graced us with the gift of live music, and much like fine wine, they've only gotten better — and cuter — with age. Dream's Melissa Schuman said it best when she quipped "This is to let you know that you can still be sexy past the age of 30.”

Myspace attended the Los Angeles leg of the tour to take some photos while we danced and sung along to heart string-tugging classics such as "On The Way Down," "Liquid Dreams," "I Do (Cherish You)" and "He Loves U Not." Check out a few of our favorite photos below.

08.12.2016 | Markos Papadatos

Westbury - On August 11, O-Town performed at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, as part of the My2K tour, along with Ryan Cabrera, Dream and 98 Degrees.



They began their set promptly at 8 p.m. with "Liquid Dreams," where lyrics from the song's chorus were displayed on the giant televised screen. "We are O-Town," they said, introducing themselves. "Make some noise."

O-Town immediately broke into "Girl," which featured their synchronized choreography, and they sang their new song "Lines & Circles," where they showed their soft side.

It was neat to see them do their own version of "Am I Wrong," tipping their hats to Nico & Vinz and they continued with a funky version of The Weeknd's "I Can't Feel My Face," where they had their fans waving their hands up in the air, as the televised screen featured a psychedelic background.

They took their fans on a trip down memory lane to their first No. 1 video with "We Fit Together," and they went into the crowd and took selfies with everybody during "These Are the Days," which became a popular hit with the audience.

O-Town encouraged the crowd to sing along with them on "Playing with Fire," and they had them clapping along. "Westbury! Get your hands together," they said.

They closed with their signature ballad, "All or Nothing," where everybody's phones were up as they lit up the venue, and it subsequently garnered them a standing ovation.

The Verdict

Overall, O-Town was able to deliver at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, and they were able to warm up the stage for the acts that followed on the My2K tour. It is safe to say that they gained many new fans this evening. Their live set earned four out of five stars.

Chuck Yarborough, The Plain Dealer | 07.29.2016



CLEVELAND, Ohio – It's not true that Cain and Abel were the first boy band; it just seems like it.

The thing about boy bands is that their popularity is like a two-layer cake: The first layer is when they were big, which makes sense; the second is when the teens and preteens who loved them grow up and start feeling nostalgic.

On Wednesday, Aug. 3, the Hard Rock Rocksino will fan some of those nostalgia flames with the My2K Tour, featuring O-Town, 98 Degrees, the girl band Dream and Ryan Cabrera.

We managed to catch up with Erik-Michael Estrada, Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood and Dan Miller (who replaced original selectee Ikaika Kahoano, the guys of O-Town, formed in a television show called "Making the Band'' in early 2000, to talk about Wednesday's gig and the genre in general for an email interview.

The My2K Tour pumped the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater with a heap of nostalgia in hopes of transporting fans about 15 years into the not-too-distant past Thursday night.

As hot and humid as ever in the venue, doors opened around 7 p.m. to a modest-enough crowd that the Amp closed off its entire upper section.

But about halfway through the show, the lower pit filled just about to its capacity, and fans of all four acts stood ready to rock and swoon their night away.

An impressively coiffed Ryan Cabrera opened the evening, using an unusual clear guitar as he strummed through his catalog of hits like "On the Way Down," welcoming everyone to the "My2K Hot as Hell Tour."

He'd close with a medley of familiar pop hits, leading fans in a "Seven Nation Army" chant as he finished his set.

Pop music nostalgia has crossed over into the new millennium. (Well, it used to be new, anyway.)

The "My2K" tour brings together four acts who were teen pop stars and staples of MTV's "TRL" in the early 2000s: boy bands 98 Degrees and O-Town, singer-songwriter Ryan Cabrera and R&B girl group Dream.

All of these acts (save Cabrera) were retired for more than a decade before returning to the stage sometime in the last four years. They'll bring the sounds of the "TRL" years to Nashville's Ryman Auditorium on Tuesday, July 19.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $45-$99.

The My2K Tour brought pop hits, boy bands and more Tuesday to Revention Music Center. The nostalgia vibes were in full effect.

The multi-act show featured 98 Degrees, led by a still crush-worthy Nick Lachey. The group never reached the heights of Backstreet Boys or NSYNC. But 98 Degrees managed a handful of hits, including "Because of You," "The Hardest Thing," "I Do (Cherish You)" and "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)."

And they're still tops when it comes to beefcake factor.

Also on the bill were O-Town, whose hits included "Liquid Dreams" and "All or Nothing;" recently reunited girl group Dream, who scored a hit with "He Loves U Not"; and Ryan Cabrera, the one-time spiky-haired boyfriend of Ashlee Simpson, whose sister, Jessica, was once married to Lachey.

98 Degrees, Ryan Cabrera, Dream and O-Town united this month for the ongoing My2K tour, which celebrates nostalgic, TRL-era pop. A new "sizzle" clip for the tour features hits from each act: 98 Degrees' "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche"), Cabrera's "On the Way Down," O-Town's "All or Nothing" and Dream's "He Loves U Not."

The video blends onstage footage of crooning and choreography with shots of thrilled fans. The tour kicked off July 8th in Park City, Kansas and will conclude August 29th in San Francisco. The next stop is July 11th at Dallas' South Side Ballroom.

The 39-date My2K is 98 Degrees' first trek since 2013, when they teamed with New Kids on the Block for their "The Package" Tour. It marks Dream's first outing in over a decade.

07.12.2016 | Donna Isbell Walker

During the first years of the new millennium, the boy band O-Town induced its share of screaming and swooning among its teen and tween fan base.

These days, the reunited O-Town is finding that some things change, but some stay the same.

They’ve found that a handful of fans, said O-Town singer Jacob Underwood, behave an awful lot like they did 15 years ago.

“We’ve had a few girls that have been kicked out before the show even started because they were acting like they were 13 still,” Underwood said in a recent phone interview. “The only issue is, now they can drink, so they can get extra unruly when they get drunk and want to act like a 13-year-old. It gets pretty funny.”

Overall, however, O-Town, which comes to Greenville July 20 on the My2K tour, has found it fun to connect with long-ago fans.

The biggest difference, Underwood said, is “we can actually hang out with them after the show. They like to buy us a drink and tell us what our song meant to them or what the show meant to them. We get to reminisce and relive the past as adults and really appreciate it. So it’s a much different vibe.”

TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) - The 2000's. They're back, and still cool. It was sometimes called the next decade, the double zeros, the new millennium, or Y2K.

Whatever you choose to call it, it was a new era, especially when it comes to music. It was a chance for artist to make their names known. With new, evolving technology it was becoming more and more possible for upcoming artists to get discovered, instead of submitting an old-fashioned CD to record executives.

Think back to the heady days of 2000, and a little TV show by the name ofMaking the Band. The winners of this reality show went on to form the legendary boy band O-Town. For three beautiful years, the members of this group produced songs that live in the hearts of noughties kids everywhere. Butwhat happened to the boys of O-Town, and where are they now?

First, a recap: O-Town's origins are more dramatic than you might remember. Their original manager, Lou Pearlman, is still serving a 25-year prison sentencefor a Ponzi scheme he ran to the tune of a half-billion dollars, as explained byThe Hollywood Reporter. And like many former reality stars, O-Town's original members Erik-Michael Estrada, Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Dan Miller, and Ashley Parker Angel, have lived interesting lives long after the cameras stopped rolling. Whether you followed every episode of Making the Band with intense devotion or you still can't get "All Or Nothing" out of your head, catching up with the boys today is sure to be interesting. Who has branched out into an acting career, and who has performed in two Broadway shows? Spoiler alert: you just might be able to see some O-Town members on a reunion tour near your city very soon.

For pop music fans born in the late ’80s, there isn’t a summer more pivotal than 1999.

Boy band heartthrobs and pop princesses were all the rage. MTV’s “Total Request Live” was required after-school viewing. Nickelodeon even sponsored the first music festival catered to kids, headlined by boy band 98 Degrees.

Nearly two decades later, those same “kids” are still spending their money on music festivals -- but now with a nostalgic bent.

Nineties hip-hop label Bad Boy has launched a tour. Gwen Stefani and Eve will hit the road. Even boy band 98 Degrees is taking advantage of aughts fever this summer with a new outing.

“It seems like the nostalgia thing is becoming the in vogue way to tour these days,” said 98 Degrees’ Nick Lachey.

Lachey and 98 Degrees will top-line the My2K Tour, launching in July, which pairs them with former teen-dreams who once dominated “TRL,” including Ryan Cabrea, O-Town and Dream.

As with any child who grew up jamming to boy bands and girl groups, pop music of the '00s will always hold a special place in my heart. Before there was Apple Music and when Drake was still starring as Jimmy Brooks onDegrassi, it was boy band O-Town, guitar-strumming singer-songwriter Ryan Cabrera, and girl group Dream whose music blasted out of our boomboxes (the original iHomes) and took over the radio airwaves. We may not be able to go back to that musical time in our lives, but fortunately, the bands and artists that we loved haven't gone anywhere. 98 Degrees, O-Town, Ryan Cabrera, and Dream are uniting this summer for the MY2K Tour, a concert series guaranteed to give you all the nostalgic feels and get some classic '00s pop songs stuck in your head all over again. These artists are getting prepared for their crazy awesome new tour, and they're spilling details about what they're doing to bring back the '00s to their concert stage.

If you thought that these pop stars would be unsure about what classics to bring back to the stage, it turns out that they actually have the opposite problem — they don't know what to leave behind! According to O-Town's Jacob Underwood, via an email:
"We’ve been touring with our hour and a half set now so for the summer tour our biggest problem is deciding what to cut! We’ve prepped a really fun live mash up featuring some covers along with some of our older stuff that we really think our fans will enjoy."

"11 Early '00s Pop Music Video Dance Routines That Every Millennial Wanted To Learn" - Bustle

In the early aughts, you were nobody in pop if your music video didn't include an elaborate, over-choreographed mass dance routine. In those lazy, hazy days of 2000-2005, extra status points were won via, a, complicated constructs to incorporate your dance into the video narrative (think: Jennifer Lopez "Love Don't Cost A Thing" postcard dance troop or *NSYNC-as-puppets in "Bye Bye Bye") and b, matching outfits, a la Christina Aguilera's troop of sexy girl-boxers in "Dirrty" or B2K's mass denim look in "Uh Huh." But those days are gone. Today's pop royalty, whether Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez or Ariana Grande, insist on painfully dance-free music videos. I have zero idea if these artists are sexy, cool, lithe in the sack or if their crew's tight. There are no clues anymore.

Have music video choreographers gone the same way as travel agents, saxophonists, and print journalists? Did music video choreography emit its final gasp when none of us were even listening? Ugh, probably.

So, without further ado, let's revisit the best dance routines the early '00s had to offer us. The ones you practiced for hours in front of your bedroom mirror so you could "effortlessly" introduce it at the next school dance.

7. "Liquid Dreams" – O-Town

The dance routine was as brazenly sexual as this song's title (seriously, this song's title: wut?). But still so simple, so temptingly, temptingly simple.

“We always clear the dressing room for about 30 minutes to focus on the show and make sure everyone’s good to go. Maybe discuss something we want to try during the show or something we might want to fix from the night before. But before we leave the room we always pray, give a little bro his and say something like, “Love you buddy, have a good show, and don’t fu*k up.” Or something endearing like that. – Jacob Underwood, O-Town

Boy band alert!

The Portsmouth Pavilion is bringing in 98 Degrees, O-Town, Dream and Ryan Cabrera for a concert on July 26.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, 98 Degrees was a hit machine, with singles such as “Because of You,” “I Do,” “The Hardest Thing” and “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche).”

O-Town was the centerpiece of the ABC reality show “Making the Band,” and Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Erik-Michael Estrada, Ashley Parker Angel, and Dan Miller went on to release hit singles “Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing.”
+3

The all-girl band Dream (“He Loves U Not”) and Ryan Cabrera (“On the Way Down,” “True” and “Shine On”) round out the lineup.

The tour is being billed as My2K, and tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at the Portsmouth Pavilion box office and Ticketmaster locations, by phone at 800-745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.

O-Town made it...until their manager kept their money. “He later went to jail,” says San Diego’s Jacob Underwood (in hat).

A lot of musicians feel they have to leave San Diego in order to “make it.” Jacob Underwood felt he made it when he was able to move back.

“I live in the Gaslamp, but we recorded our last album over near College Avenue,” Underwood says. “This city has everything I need. I’ve always wanted to move back, and I spent 16 years working so I could.”

Underwood grew up in the Granite Hills area of El Cajon, but moved to Orlando, Florida, to be a member of the pop group O-Town during the declining days of the boy-band era.

The group was formed for the ABC reality show Making the Band. For a while, the band did make it. In 2000, O-Town hit No. 10 on the pop charts with “Liquid Dreams,” and in 2001 they reached No. 3 with “All Or Nothing.”

Just when you thought the posters on your teenage bedroom walls had hung up their platforms and muscle tees for good, the pop stars aligned and brought us the MY2K Tour. This summer, 98 Degrees will be hitting memory lane (and other major highways) with O-Town, Dream and Ryan Cabrera.

I called out of work the day after the news broke because of heart palpitations. I also really wanted to brush up on lyrics and see if I could find any butterfly hair clips on eBay. Those things take time. This nostalgia-dusted lineup claimed the hearts of many years ago, and they still have them. Now, they just beat to a different ballad.

Before you hit puberty, you probably saw 98 Degrees in concert, sang along to every song on It Was All A Dream through your neon braces, cried when you missed O-Town in your city and were way too invested in Ryan Cabrera’s relationship with Ashlee Simpson. Not much has changed.

Nowadays, you spend your Sunday afternoons indulging in marathons of “The Newlyweds,” stalk the Dream ladies on Instagram for outfit inspiration, have Twitter notifications enabled for each O-Town hunk and contemplate getting a Ryan Cabrera tattoo daily. The MY2K Tour is your chance to show how far you’ve come since trading in your training bra.

"O-TOWN Tour Demands Are ALL '90S OR NOTHING" - TMZ

TMZ released an article stating what O-Town's supposed tour demands. Read the comical article below or click here.

05.02.2016 | TMZ Staff

O-Town's either stuck in the '90s or they just have a great sense of humor about their upcoming tour.

The boy band's hitting the road with 98 Degrees, Dream and Ryan Cabrera for the nostalgic MY2K Tour and their rider is filled with throwback items like a '90s boombox "to play their sweet cassette collection" ... and a Nintendo 64 to "play GoldenEye."

Other backstage demands include cases of local beer, assorted liquors, 5 cans of silly string and a back scratcher.

Most bizarre on their list is definitely the kitty litter and wet cat food "for the stray cats the band takes in while on the road."

That's gotta be code.
