The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers' music has roots in traditional folk and bluegrass, but also captures the high spirits and no-boundaries attitude of rock & roll -- which is appropriate, since rock is where Scott Avett and Seth Avett first cut their teeth as musicians. Although siblings Scott (vocals, banjo) and Seth (vocals, guitar) began making music together as children, their group's genesis began when they were members of Nemo, a rock band that gigged regularly in Greenville, North Carolina. Looking for another outlet for their musical ideas, the Avetts began getting together with like-minded friends (most notably Nemo guitarist John Twomey) on Tuesdays for acoustic guitar pulls, where they'd share a few drinks and swap songs. As time passed, the weekly get-together (which was called "the Back Door Project" or "Nemo Downstairs") became a semi-public event, with the pickers busking for the enjoyment of passers-by, and Seth and Scott decided the new acoustic music they were making was as fun and satisfying as their rock band.

Twomey and the Avetts decided to document their side project in 2000, and "the Back Door Project" was renamed the Avett Brothers with the release of a self-titled album that same year. Nemo broke up before 2000 came to a close, and Seth and Scott decided to make the Avett Brothers their new priority. They amicably parted ways with Twomey and added upright bassist and vocalist Bob Crawford to the combo. After a few months of playing live shows, the new trio recorded its second album, 2002's Country Was. The Avett Brothers hit the road upon the album's release that summer, and used the opportunity to break in material for their next studio project, A Carolina Jubilee, which was released in 2003. (A live disc, Live at the Double Door Inn, was sandwiched between the two studio sets.)

Over the next several years, the Avett Brothers maintained a busy and prolific schedule. They released a lengthy and ambitious studio album, Mignonette, in 2004, another live disc in 2005, and both a full-length album (Four Thieves Gone: The Robinsville Sessions) and an EP (The Gleam) in 2006, all recorded during breaks in the group's heavy touring calendar. As if this weren't enough to keep the three men occupied, Crawford also recorded and performed with his side project New Jersey Transient, Seth Avett released albums under the moniker Darling, and Seth and Scott occasionally played shows with their electric band Oh What a Nightmare. In 2007, the Avett Brothers reached a new level of popularity with Emotionalism, their first album to make a dent on the Billboard charts. Rick Rubin took notice and signed the band to American Recordings, his own division of Sony BMG/Columbia, during the following summer.

The Gleam II, issued just several months later, was the Avett Brothers' last release on the Ramseur label, while 2009's I and Love and You served as their major-label debut. The album peaked at number 16, by far the band's highest chart placement to date, and the international tour that followed was partially documented on the 2010 concert album Live, Vol. 3. In 2011 the Avett Brothers received an invitation to perform alongside Bob Dylan and Mumford & Sons at the Grammy Awards, and in 2012 they released The Carpenter, their second studio album under the tutelage of Rubin. The Carpenter was greeted with good reviews and debuted at number four on the Billboard Top 200 on its way to a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album. In 2013, the Avett Brothers released Magpie and the Dandelion, which consisted of material recorded with Rubin during the sessions for The Carpenter. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

What an incredible band my gf introduced me to. Their live shows are unreal!
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't read this you will die in two days. Now that you've started reading this don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on five songs in the next 143 minutes. When your done press F6 and your lover name will pop up on the screen in big letters. Trust me it works.
I'm frightened by those who don't see it...

:))))))) the wind in the trees are ganging up on me!!! They're good!
jamesplancer
heard them on NPR and they were playing some of Emotionalism and interviewing them and I just could not believe how awesome it all sounded. And ever since then I cant tell enough friends about them and go see them whenever I can. And I think it was my fourth show I got to meet them all and they are so real and they actually liked to meet their fans and chat with every person who was there to get a autograph or shoot the s**t. Love these guys, def. their best album!

Avett Brothers are awesome. Their music and lyrics is very well done and I would be honored to see them live!
avetteers!! avetteers unite!! avetteers forever!!
Saw Avett Brothers in Green Bay, WI back in November. They were ridiculous. Probably best live show I've ever seen. Just love listening to them now.
Grew up down the street from these guys, see them around town all the time. Nothing like it. Not to mention the amazing music the produce.

If I hear another Mumford and etc. song, I'm going to vomit. But Yes, these guys are good. Nothing like that pop country crap.
Is this not about the most Dear song I've ever heard? (Murder in the city) who are you guys? Where have I been? What did any of us do to get these blessings? And thank you.
These guys are relentlessly good. I'm so grateful I get to be around while they're still producing such great material
I'm 11 and have been to see about 7 of their concerts-had the best time ever!!!
Avetteers unite!!! avetteers hurrah!!! I salute all avett fans!! Comment if u agree!

Being a North Carolina native I can appreciate any band that made it. The avett brothers are great. Just like they said "in with the new and out with the old ". Keep making great tunes. Much love from wilson and Wilmington NC

I agree with Dezra 100%. The first time I saw them the raw energy is what I liked most. The last time I saw them (last year) with Rubin running the show. It has turned into mainstream crap. Even the sound was horrible. Too bad.
i just saw them in Vegas last sunday OH.MY.GOSH!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! even better live!!!
I wish the Avetts would have ever met Rick Rubin!! He is ruining them!! I fell in love with the raw energetic foot stomping sound of these guys and Rubin is stripping it away from them, making them into the rest of the mainstream bullshit. There is a reason I haven't listened to the radio in over 10 years...it sucks. The Avetts do not suck and therefore do not belong on the radio! Let em go Rubin...make your dollars with someone else!!
