From 2011 until Avi's departure in 2017, Pentatonix released five studio albums under Sony Music Entertainment. The 6-year-long journey also saw the group win three Grammys.

Going solo, the Fields and Pier singer changed his stage name to Avril & the Sequoias. Then in June 2017, he dropped an EP titled Sage and Stone.
