“If a major label misses picking up One Step Away they will be kicking themselves in the pants for eternity…
I think every track [on “For the Broken”] is radio ready and a potential hit for this band…”
– Keith Hannaleck-Muzikreviews.com Founder, For the Broken Review, 2010
"For The Broken" is already one of my favorite releases of 2010. With the right dosage of pop and rock being administered the boys have created something rather unique... if this album is anything to go by, One Step Away will be the next big thing! - Bekka Collins, TheSoundAlarm.com
From Alternative Press Magazine Issue #269: The Story So Far:
It could be the plot of any number of CW dramas. Childhood friends Michael Nuzzolo (bass) and Terence Healy (guitar) jammed together from a young age but were separated into two different suburban Boston high schools. Still, they didn't abandon their dream of starting a band. "I found Adam [Carrington, vocals] after having him in the school musical," says Nuzzolo. "We then found Ben [Trudeau, drums] through and area music school."
Why you should know 'em:
Coming together in 2007, One Step Away started out competing in local battles of the bands, which they had a habit of winning with their sunny, melodic pop. "We won the Boston Music Festival and had multiple [appearances] on TV," says Nuzzolo. The success helped push the band far from their East Coast home. "This past summer we played as far away as Universal Studios Hollywood and the Whiskey A Go-Go in Los Angeles."
