The Avett Brothers

If the words 'country music' make you scared, then just hold on a minute. If country music means Garth Brooks, Keith Urban or Shania Twain to you, then allow me a minute of your time. Allow me to talk to you about The Avett Brothers. For this is truly country music. Music with soul, passion and heart. If you are not familiar with The Avett Brothers, well then just wait until September 29. That day sees the release of their new album in the shape of "I And Love and You" (cover art above). This album is their major label debut, having signed with Columbia Records. The album's cover is actually a painting by Scott Avett named "Julianne In Vain". A multi talented group indeed! This North Carolina band's new album contains 13 tunes and was produced in California by Rick Rubin.

So, The Avett Brothers consist of two brothers in Scott and Seth Avitt, along with Bob Crawford. Their music is a delirious blend of bluegrass, rock, country and ragtime. They use guitar, banjo and stand up bass to deliver the message. A message delivered before on four full length albums, all worth tracking down. The title track is available as a single now.
