The Rocket Summer

The pride of Colleyville, Texas, Bryce Avary recorded and released two initial EPs before taking the Rocket Summer to stages worldwide. Avary signed with the Militia Group in 2002 and released the Calendar Days LP a short time after; a gifted songwriter and musician, he played every instrument heard on the album, debuting a lush, layered, and exuberant sound that blended alt-rock and emo influences with references to his faith. The Tim O'Heir-produced Hello, Good Friend followed in 2005. By that time the Rocket Summer had gained a reputation not only for Avary's multi-threat talent in the studio, but for his and his band's energetic live shows. Militia reissued his first self-titled EP in November 2006, retitled The Early Years EP, whose original 1,000 copies had been sold out since Avary had recorded and released it at age 16 (circa 1999/2000). An EP was released in early 2007 and, following a move to Island/Def Jam Records, Avary released his third full-length, Do You Feel. In 2009 Avary released the four-song EP, You Gotta Believe, which featured material that would appear on the band's fourth album, 2010's Of Men and Angels. It reached the Top 40, and in 2012, Rocket Summer returned with Life Will Write the Words. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

The rocket summer has helped me through the worst of times and has inspired me to go further during the best of times. The impact this band has had on my life is immeasurable .

The Rocket Summer has been my favorite band for as long as I can remember. I have seen Bryce play all over the United States multiple times and have always admired his musical talents. I hope he comes down to South Florida again soon!

Underrated <3

This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either be kissed or asked out. If you break this chain, you will see a little girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.

kashishian93
this is a great song
One of my favorite artists. You can't listen to the Rocket Summer and not suddenly feel hopeful and happy :)
I loved Bryce after I heard his first song, but after I started to keep listening, I'm a total fangirl. LOVE!
fprice51
i've seen Bryce live about 3 times, his live performances are amazing! He puts his heart and soul into every song live and on the albums. He is amazing!
marisarust
I love him. he is so talented!
kousouris
hes amazing. the songs really resonate to me.
i thought it sounded very gay until I read a little. I have to admit that is pretty good to be able to do it all oneself. Even if i don't care for the type of music. ta hell with me, anyway.
mauiluvspurp l e
dude! Bryce Avery is cool! it's amazing how he can play music byhimself!!: p

YOU ARE WHAT THIS INDUSTRY NEEDS
bryce. thank you for saving me. i never would have made it without you. thank you
a whiny high school kid? no thanks.
rocket summer is the best, ive known them since calendar days came out
What's not to love. A musician who plays all his own instruments, writes, produces. Just a little longer and he'll be huge! Let's hope!
THE ROCKET SUMMER!!! Best band of all time, so uplifting. I <3 you Bryce!!!! The Fight<3
Best artist out there. I love him so.

fairy_paolin a
Wow... I didn't know this was a one person band. That's AMAZING! The music gets me pumped in the morning dancing and singing, very lovely.
rayjay92
haley, your dumb.
OMG THE GUY THAT SINGS THIS SONG IBN THE VIDEO IS SO HOTTTT!!
luke_and_lei a _ r _ j e d i
Tara is sooo sweet! Bryce loves her a lot, you can tell, he talked to me about her and where she had gone to college and stuff, he's not gay.
pburnsed
I hate how people assume anyone with a high pitched voice is gay.
For example : Anthony Green as the highest voice in the history of forever and people think he's gay. He is a married man, married to a woman. And I've met Bryce's wife Tara and they are the cutest couple who very much love each other.
rayjay92
Stephen Bryce Avary isn't homosexual. he is married to his highschool sweetheart. i think her name is Tara, and they are in LOVE. he may have a slightly femmie voice, but ai can guarentee he isn't gay. the song Colors is about him and Tara..

i love his and his inspiring musci. definatly a hearo, and a guy to look up to.. can't wait for more Bryce!
abame
hes cool and writes good songs but i just wanna know, is it just me or does he sound like hes gay?
I've seen him three times, and he is so worth it! Congrats both to him and to his current label; the music industry needs more people like him.
i love the rocket summer so much, he is my all time favorite artist.
He does this thing in concert where he starts playing drums, records a loop, goes to the bass, plays with the loop and loops the bass part, to guitar and does the same thing, then ends up on the keyboard for the rest of the song. Pretty darn cool...
This guy is crazy talented and has such a passionate faith. It's really encouraging to see someone like him!
lindsjoy90
LOVE ROCKET SUMMER! went to a concert, and it was awesome
i love this band he iz like the best band in the world!!
Not bad. Reminds me a little bit of Something Corporate, but with a lead singer that sings in a higher octave.
