Devon Kay and the Solutions are here to provide you with the soundtrack to this unique summer with new single, “252 Brighton Ave". It is a bouncy pop-punk ode to Boston, amplified by the addition of a brass section. The accompanying music video will surely help you pass your time daydreaming about when we’ll be able to enjoy live music again.

Devon Kay has used the term "the Solutions" to describe the members of his band his entire life. "The problem is," Devon says, "my songs are only really good as the people in the band." This is noticeable on the band's most recent single "252 Brighton Ave." What was mainly a three-piece band, where Devon would experiment with his song writing, became a full six-piece rock spectacle on the band's latest effort. With the addition of Jacob Horn (Trombone), Jake Levinson (Bass), Ian Terry (Trumpet), & Joram Zbichorski (Keyboards) the band can now dip into a whole new world of sounds. Pulling inspiration from a love of pop punk and ska to new wave influence to big band horn lines, The Solutions are open to expanding the "ska-punk" genre to something you don't need to apologize for liking... modern ska fans get it.

"All of these new Solutions are all crazy good musicians from Wisconsin. I dunno why I found this treasure trove of WI musicians by way of Chicago but I did and you can't have them."
