The Avett Brothers
When you're receptive to the forces around you, you'll notice there's something powerful in the air.
It's that feeling of inspiration to which The Avett Brothers consistently remain open." It's a spirit that courses through everything that they do. You could call it a "creative lifeblood" or a "muse", but it's ultimately indefinable. However, you can hear it and feel it within 2013's Magpie and the Dandelion.
Recorded immediately after The Carpenter with Rick Rubin (marking their third consecutive team-up in the studio with the iconic producer), the North Carolina quartet—Seth Avett, Scott Avett, Bob Crawford, and Joe Kwon—rode a creative wave that yielded another ponderous, poetic, and passionate collection on the heels of their most successful set to date, no less. Their eighth studio album went on to debut at #5 on the Billboard Top 200, while they performed on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman as well as joining legendary Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell for a rapturous Pearl Jam tribute on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. A string of sold out shows followed as the boys continued to dream up their next step. Much like their own music, it promises to continue tradition, while making a decidedly personal statement. If you keep your eyes, mind, and heart open, you'll undoubtedly feel it.
During 2009, the group made mainstream waves with their lauded major label debut, I and Love and You. It landed at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered unanimous critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Paste, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Time, who even dubbed it one of Top 10 albums of the year. 2012 saw The Carpenter hit #4 on the Billboard Top 200—their highest bow to date—while People, USA Today, and American Songwriter lauded the album. The group graced the stage of Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! twice in merely a few months' time. During the second performance, they invited the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra along to pay homage to Brooklyn with "I and Love and You" as personally requested by Mr. Kimmel.
In 2001, banjoist Scott and guitarist Seth formed The Avett Brothers with standup bass player Bob. Growing up in Concord, NC, the boys immersed themselves in their musician dad's record collection, falling in love with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. They rose to the status of genre stalwarts over the course of six albums, including 2007's acclaimed Emotionalism.
The book is open though, and the next chapter for The Avett Brothers will definitely be the brightest, boldest, and biggest yet.
Alternative Soul music from the heart - for the heart. Nicholas David Mrozinski is a vibrant, dynamic, and multi-talented singer/songwriter/pianist from Saint Paul, MN. For more than a decade, Nicholas has been making music that has been connecting with people, all around the world, on a deeply human level. Nicholas (Nicholas David) was most recently a finalist, and a fan favorite, as a member of Team CeeLo on NBC's Season 3 of The Voice. http://bit.ly/Zb0Beg
Nicholas’ music is fully integrated, incorporating many schools of music and thought. His powerful voice, enriching lyrics, and liquid piano playing truly set him apart and are the reason Skope Magazine calls him “an authentic artist of this millennium.” His one-of-a-kind sound is passionate, captivating, intelligent, diverse, genuine, fresh, and he truly 'feels' it. It's no wonder why his thriving Twin Cities music scene affectionately refers to him as "the feelin".
Nicholas truly is one of a kind, and a must see. He gives himself over to the music. It's almost like he channels it from somewhere else. His hugely passionate fans often speak of his live shows as some sort of new church or spiritual alternative that they actually want to be a part of. And those words mean a lot from everyday folks who are not openly spiritual or the church going type.
With 5 studio albums, national radio play, amazing reviews, many great charity & collaborative efforts under his belt (all prior to his amazing run on The Voice) Nicholas is now back in the studio working on album number 6, stronger and more inspired than ever.
Nicholas' original music is available on iTunes under the name ‘Nicholas Mrozinski’, at www.thefeelin.com, and in other fine stores.
