The Avett BrothersThere is no harmony like brotherly harmony. Something indelible in the weave of voices and play of sensibilities is stamped into the fraternal DNA and also stems from a lifetime of shared experiences. You can hear it in classic brother acts across the musical spectrum, from the Louvin Brothers to the Everly Brothers and on down the decades through the Wilson brothers (Beach Boys), the Davies brothers (Kinks), the Allman Brothers and even the Brothers Gibb (a.k.a., the Bee Gees). You can clearly hear fraternal magic at work in the songs of Scott and Seth Avett, better known as the Avett Brothers, as well.
Although they have played music together since childhood, the brothers Scott and Seth Avett truly began their partnership in the late 1990s with the merger of Seth's high school rock band Margo and Scott's college group Nemo. After releasing three albums under the "Nemo" moniker, the Avetts started experimenting with acoustic music with some friends at night. After a few street performances and get-togethers they dubbed "The Back Porch Project" or "Nemo Downstairs," the brothers and Nemo guitarist John Twomey put together The Avett Bros., a self-titled EP, in 2000. As Nemo fell apart, Scott and Seth continued to write acoustic music together. With the early 2002 addition of stand-up bassist Bob Crawford, formerly of The Memphis Quick 50, the band released their first full length album Country Was. The Avett Brothers set out on a self-booked tour to promote the new album and in late 2002 began preparations for a follow-up.
After releasing a live record of originals and covers titled Live at the Double Door Inn, the brothers settled down to compile a new full length album. During this time, the band began a partnership with Dolph Ramseur, a local label owner who had been impressed by the group's live show and original material. After 70 hours in the studio, 2003's A Carolina Jubilee became the band's first release on Ramseur Records. The new album encompassed not only the band's intensity but also its refined sound..
In 2004, The Avett Brothers released their next album, titled Mignonette. The new CD featured polished harmonies, introspective lyrics and a sense of dedication that pushed the band to new heights. Live, Vol. 2 followed in 2005 and spanned material from their career up to that point. In early 2006 they released Four Thieves Gone: The Robbinsville Sessions to much acclaim. During extensive touring in support of the album, Scott and Seth Avett produced The Gleam, an EP of intimate, stripped-down recordings which was released in September of that year. The band released Emotionalism on May 15, 2007. It debuted at the top of the Billboard Top Heatseekers Albums chart, No. 134 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 13 on the Independent Artist Chart. In support of the album, the band made their national television debut on May 12 on Late Night with Conan O'Brien where they performed "Paranoia in B-Flat Major." Emotionalism marked the first appearance of cellist Joe Kwon, who has since become a full-time touring and recording member of the band.
On November 1, 2007 The Avett Brothers won the Americana Music Association Duo/Group of the Year and New/Emerging Artist of the Year awards. In the spring of 2008 the band announced that their newest EP, The Second Gleam, would be released on July 22.
Later in 2008, the band announced they had chosen Rick Rubin to produce their next album and were now signed to his American Recordings label.
From September 8 to October 8, 2009, the Avett Brothers released 13 short videos describing their music and fans in anticipation of their upcoming album, I and Love and You. The videos include clips from past concerts, fan interviews and interviews with the members of the band. The Avett Brothers were named "the Artist to Watch of 2009" by Rolling Stone magazine. I and Love and You was released on September 29, 2009 and peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard 200 best selling albums, No. 8 in best selling digital albums, No. 7 in rock albums, and No. 1 in folk albums. In the wake of the album's release, the Avett Brothers made the rounds on late-night TV, including appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. On January 21, 2010, the band was featured on the long-running PBS series Austin City Limits.
In the fall of 2010 the band released their first DVD, Live, Volume 3. Also released on CD, the performance was recorded the previous year during the band's homecoming concert at Charlotte, NC's Bojangles Coliseum..
The Avett Brothers appeared on the 53rd Grammy Awards in 2011, playing "Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise" before joining Mumford and Sons and Bob Dylan for a performance of "Maggie's Farm."
In early 2011 the band returned to the studio to begin working on the followup to I and Love and You, for a release 2012, produced again by Rick Rubin. "We've recorded 24 songs, and there's plenty more where that came from," said singer Scott Avett (as quoted in June 2011 Rolling Stonemagazine). A song expected to appear on the album is "The Once and Future Carpenter", which the band debuted at their New Year's Eve set of shows in Asheville, NC in late 2010. "We've been very fortunate to meet a friend like Rick" says Avett. "It's been a real good, natural process.." On June 26, 2012 The Avett Brothers released a preview on NPRmusic of the single, slated for July 3, 2012, "Live and Die". With this they announced they would release their 6th full-length album The Carpenter on September 11, 2012. It debuted at number 4 on the Billboard Top 200. "The Carpenter" was then nominated for Best Americana Album Grammy (55th annual).
Old Crow Medicine Show
Old Crow Medicine Show got its' start busking on street corners in New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He immediately invited the band to play at his MerleFest, helping to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band relocated to Nashville for a residency at the Grand Ole Opry, where they entertained the crowd between shows.It's been nearly fifteen years since these humble beginnings, and the band has gone on to tour the world, sell over 800,000 albums, become frequent guests on A Prairie Home Companion, and play renowned festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, and the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. In November of 2011 Old Crow's classic single, "Wagon Wheel", received the RIAA's Gold certification for selling over 500,000 copies.
In 2011 Old Crow found themselves embarking on the historic Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford and Sons, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. This tour had the bands riding a vintage train from California to New Orleans, playing shows along the way. The magic of this musical excursion across America's vast landscape is captured in the Emmet Malloy directed documentary, Big Easy Express.
Old Crow Medicine Show now have four studio albums to their name, three of which were released by Nettwerk Records - O.C.M.S and Big Iron World produced by David Rawlings, andTennessee Pusher produced by Don Was. On their newest album, Carry Me Back, Old Crow continue to craft classic American roots music while pushing themselves in new directions. Carry Me Back, released by ATO Records and produced by Ted Hutt, represents a new stretch of road in the timeless journey of a rambling string band.
