"The Other LA - Making Moves"

“popVLTR: You've been making moves in Louisiana, how'd you get into music? The answer is different for each of the three permanent members of the group. For McKenzie Lee (bass) and Aria (vocals), pursuing music was never really an option. They are both blessed with Asperger’s which has its issues but also comes with its blessings. Music for both of these members is how they express themselves in a way that they are more comfortable. Blessed with perfect pitch, picking up an instrument was only second nature. For Devin Nunez playing guitar and music just spoke to his soul and saved his life on several occasions. After Katrina losing everything, picking up and moving to a strange place music was the only thing that kept Devin going. The discipline of organized sports only enhanced how he learned his instrument and found himself after such loss. And let’s face it McKenzie and Devin are from Louisiana and music is kind of part of the culture.” - PopVulture Magazine

"HeyBrayJ - Few Can Take the Stage"

“There are so many Louisiana music artists that put their soul into their music and unfortunately only a few of them get the opportunity to show off their talent to a wide audience. Vans Warped Tour occurs each year and provides the opportunity needed to pull in a strong following and potentially make priceless connections. Two bands that I would like to highlight are "The Other LA" and "TANDEM" both of which are from the Lafayette area in Louisiana. They are both hoping to get a top spot in the Warped Tour ranking and need your support and vote to make it happen. Check out these bands and whether they are your favorite or not, I encourage you to support our Louisiana music artists. If you know of any other Louisiana based music artists whether they are soloist, duos or full bands message on and let me know. Thanks. - Bray J” - Braylin Jenkins


Still working on that hot first release.



The Other LA is a 5 piece rock band formed less than a year ago after the High flying vocals of Aria matched the post modern rock guitar licks and rhythms of Devin Nunez. and the gel of McKenzie Lee's drop beat bass tags. All the members had been playing music for many years as a way to cope with Asperger's, the devastation of Katrina and just trying to feel normal.

After only a short while developing a throwback moshing, stage diving and crowd surfing live presence the band has been swept up to play with national and international acts: SickPuppies, Lacuna Coil, Eyes Set to Kill, Cilver, ARIA, Darling Parade and other touring acts. A quick release of a two song demo caught the attention of local radio (Rock 93.7 - Lafayette, LA on Air, IPO Radio) and national internet radio and music reviews (Wake Magazine, MyRock Radio, PopVulture, Live and Local,

The band is back in the studio recording a 6 song EP all the while playing various shows and festivals in Louisiana and Texas. If you are ready to be swept up by driving beats and lose yourself in emotional vocals come out and rock with The Other LA in 2014.
