The Avett Brothers Biography

The Avett Brothers are a folk-rock band from Concord, North Carolina. The band is made up of two brothers, Scott Avett and Seth Avett, who play the banjo and guitar respectively, and Bob Crawford who plays the stand-up bass. They are often joined on tour by cellist Joe Kwon. Risen from the ashes of Seth and Scott's former rock band Nemo, The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones." The group itself eschews labels, feeling that "none would do the music the justice. It's simply left up to each person to extract his or her own account from the Avetts' music."

The Avett Brothers have been described by critics and fans as "indie roots", "folk-punk", or "grungegrass".

Their live performances showcase their use of three-part harmony and southern rock feel, and are noted for being intense, energetic, and soulful.

Their new album I and Love and You was released in stores on September 29, 2009.
