PRETTYMUCH are working hard on their upcoming debut album, and working to make it perfect for all their fans.

The guys — Austin Porter, Brandon Arreaga, Edwin Honoret, Nick Mara and Zion Kuwonu — chatted with JJJ about what’s going on in the studio with them right now and what fans can expect on the album.

“Our future music is going to be high energy,” Brandon tells us. “We like to throw in some harmonies and just stuff that you can dance to.”

Zion adds, “You know, you can move your feet a bit to it…”

“We want to have songs where you can play them and you can fall in love, but also dance at the same time,” Edwin shared.

PRETTYMUCH also reveal that their inspirations come from everywhere.

From Bell Biv DeVoe, to The Weeknd to even Montel Jordan.

Edwin says, “As a group I feel like Boyz II Men, we really look to them for vocal impressiveness and harmonies.”

This is What Makes PRETTYMUCH Different From All The Rest (Exclusive)

For as long as we can remember, we have had boy bands around, and yes, we obsessed over each and every one of them; and it’s the same story for PRETTYMUCH.

But these guys — Austin Porter, Brandon Arreaga, Edwin Honoret, Nick Mara and Zion Kuwonu — are different from all the rest. How so?

“We dance,” Edwin tells JJJ instantly. “It’s a different ERA of dance now –we just want to incorporate more dance.”

Brandon adds, “We’re disciplined within ourselves, and we push each other to be the best and not to just settle.”

“We also don’t look alike,” Edwin laughs. “We come from different areas across the country– different styles and personalities.”

Austin says, “I was also thinking about this the other day, each one of us represents different that group of kids in school. Edwin is part of the cool fashion kids, Brandon represents the football/athletic kids; Nick is the trying to be like an the athletic kid.”

He adds, “Zion is the kid you just want to hang with and is everyone’s best friend, and then I’m the theatre/drama kids. So we hit everyone.”

Listen to their debut single “Would You Mind” right now!

PRETTYMUCH 'Bonded Like Glue' When They First Met (Exclusive)

Imagine this — you’re just playing solo music and all of the sudden you’re in a five-piece boy band.

That’s almost what PRETTYMUCH went through and the guys — Austin Porter, Brandon Arreaga, Edwin Honoret, Nick Mara and Zion Kuwonu — are dishing all about how they gelled together.

“We bonded like glue,” Austin tells JJJ exclusively.

Brandon added on that note, “We moved into a house together, hung out, went to movies and just go on really well. It just worked!”


However, it wasn’t without its’ challenges.

“The first 3 months living together and just getting used to it…” Edwin remembers, “If you put any group of guys together you’re going to have fights and stuff and we just learned more about each other and how we work together.”

They also had to used to sharing things too.

“Just getting used to what we were ok with and what we weren’t,” Brandon adds.

We’re glad it did work out — because the guys are about to get a huge boost at the Teen Choice Awards, where they’ll be performing next weekend.

If you missed it, you can listen to their debut single “Would You Mind” right now!

“All the girls were impressed, and I thought: ‘Maybe I could do something with this!’”
