In May 2017, [[https://www.facebook.com/Pentatonix/videos/1383192448425088/ Avi announced his departure from Pentatonix]], stating that he couldn't keep up with the fast pace of the group. PTX as a whole took the opportunity to begin premiering various solo projects (typically involving actual instruments): Kirstie as [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6nJcoe15N6nL_DmUisfHOA/videos kirstin]], Avi as the frontman of [[https://www.youtube.com/user/AviKaplanMusic Avriel and the Sequoias]], and Scott and Mitch together under their pre-existing [[www.youtube.com/user/sup3rfruit SUPERFRUIT]] collaboration. (Kevin, ironically the one person with a pre-existing solo act, has not announced any new content, though he has guest-performed on at least one Sequoias song.)

All, however, are working on solo projects. The first one to come to light is Avi, who is now part of Avriel and the Sequoias, with the first song being [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0a-IsmrwyaQ "Fields and Pier"]] with Kevin playing as a guest on strings.

Pentatonix, AKA "PTX," are an ACappella singing group consisting of Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan, and Kevin Olusola. Scott, Kirstie, and Mitch grew up together in Arlington, Texas. They recorded a Website/YouTube cover of [[Music/LadyGaga "Telephone"]] in an attempt to win a "meet the cast of ''Series/{{Glee}}''" contest. They didn't win, but when Scott learned about ''Series/TheSingOff'', they were inspired to audition. With advice from ''Sing-Off'' staff member and Scott's college friend Ben Bram, they added Avi, the bass singer, and invited Kevin to join them on vocal percussion after seeing his viral "cello-beatboxing" video on [=YouTube=]. Together, the group produces a unique, full, complex and layered sound, with Scott, Kirstie, and Mitch forming the melodic and harmonic core and Avi and Kevin laying down a remarkably solid base.
