Biography

There are multiple bands which go by the name PYT.

1.) PYT was a Florida-based girl group in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Unlike many pop groups, PYT.’s formation was not the result of scouting by a talent agency or a series of auditions - instead, these Tampa teenagers - Lauren Mayhew , Ashley Niven, Lydia Bell, Tracy Williams - had all been childhood friends. They had previously performed together in the Tampa Entertainment Revue (through Busch Gardens) and were signed to Epic Records in 1998. The members of PYT derived their group’s name from a Michael Jackson song entitled “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing),” though on some occasions the girls used the acronym “PYT.” to stand for the slogan “Prove Yourself True,” based on their song, “Prove Yourself”. Among the members of the group, Tracy Williams was the alto and sung lower harmonies, Lauren Mayhew and Ashley Niven were mezzo-sopranos and sung the melody line, and Lydia Bell was the soprano who sung higher harmonies. Ashley Niven was the lead vocalist on the tracks on the album PYT (Down With Me). The group is best known for their singles: “Something More Beautiful”, “Same Ol Same Ol” and “PYT (Down With Me)”. They were also featured on the soundtracks to the films ‘Bring It On’ and ‘Center Stage’, and appeared in label-mate Mandy Moore’s music video for “Candy”.

    Their album is a lot more R&B and a lot less pop than I expected.

    pyt is the right spelling because that's how it was on their album covers. it's even that way on the current picture.
