Biography

At a time when Mumford &
Sons were making banjos, hearty singalongs and rootsy folk pop all the rage,
The Avett Brothers follow a similar path, using bluegrass and country
traditions to create Americana pop that happily crossed into the mainstream.
Formed by North Carolina siblings Scott and Seth Avett, the group came together
in 2002 with the addition of Bob Crawford and later Joe Kwon. They released 2004’s
Mignonette and 2007’s through the independent label Ramseur Records.
They attracted the attention of legendary producer Rick Rubin when 2007’s
Emotionalism
became a cult favourite, receiving widespread critical
acclaim. Rubin signed them to his American Recordings label and produced their
breakthrough album, 2009’s I And Love And You, with the title track
becoming their first top ten single. Praised for their rich, heartfelt,
acoustic harmonies and modern take on old time Southern folk, the band went on
to perform at the Grammy Awards with Bob Dylan in 2011. The following year the
band released The Carpenter which reached number five in the charts.
Still under the mentorship of Rubin, in 2013 the band issued Magpie and the
Dandelion
. True Sadness followed in 2016, and contained their first
number 1 hit, “Ain’t No Man”. For 2019’s Closer Than Together,
the band tackled more social and political issues than they had in the past.
They released The Third Gleam in 2020, an acoustic heavy collection that
followed in the tradition of two earlier EPs, 2006’s The Gleam and 2008’s
The Second Gleam.
