ORLANDO (FOX 13) –
You may remember the “boy bands” of yesterday like The Backstreet Boys and N’ Sync. Now, The KAJ Brothers are the newest act from Orlando.
They describe their sound as orchestral R & B. They’re on YouTube with an elaborate cover of Lionel Richie’s classic “Hello”.
“We want to restore love songs,” says Kyle Craichy, one of the three KAJ Brothers.
The trio is make up of Kyle, his brother Austin, and Johnny Ayts, originally from Paris. They say more songs are on the way. They returned here recently following song writing sessions in Nashville.
The KAJ Brothers say they want to change the way women are portrayed in popular music.
“We want to restore chivalry,” says Austin.
“One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the iTunes downloads of ‘Hello’ is going to different organizations that help stop sex trafficking,” Kyle says.
They’re working with vocal coach Gerry Williams, who has previously worked with members of the Backstreet Boys and other famous acts.
“They blend together and they get along really well. I haven’t seen a group like this in a long time,” Williams says.
The Craichys previously lived in the Tampa Bay area. Kyle and Austin played high school football at Admiral Farragut Academy in St. Petersburg, where their team won a state championship.
