Before You Exit is a young group of musicians introducing a fresh perspective to the pop/rock genre of music. The band began in May of 2007, when founding musician Braiden Wood (Lead Guitar) decided along with Connor McDonough (Vocals, Guitar) and Thomas Silvers (Drums) to start a band. Not long after, Before You Exit brought in Connor’s younger brother, Riley McDonough (Vocals, Bass), finally completing the band.
Shortly after coming together, the four boys were in high demand and could be found playing for a variety of local functions and events throughout Florida. The guys all possess natural talents while each musician contributes a unique asset to the group. But collectively it’s their remarkable chemistry and performance charisma at live shows that draws the fans and separates them from other bands today.
B.Y.E released their second 6-song EP titled “Letting Go,” on November 20th, 2010. As well as a brand new CD, Before You Exit was on the road in October and November of 2010 with widely known American pop rock bands All Time Low and A Rocket to the Moon. The band toured across the country performing in 21 states at venues such as The Troubadour in LA and the Irving Plaza in New York.
In fall of 2011, Before You Exit ventured out as the headlining band on a successful East Coast Tour. They played in major cities between their hometown Orlando, Florida all the way to Boston, Massachusetts revealing both new and old loyal fans across the country. The band is currently recording and writing a brand new album. Make sure to keep watch for this upcoming band!
