If you've lived in Charlotte for any length of time in the last decade you've no doubt heard of the Avett Brothers. The folk trio hails from Charlotte's northern neighbor, Concord, and is well-rooted in the Queen City having played several sold-out New Year's Eve shows at NoDa's Neighborhood Theatre. The trio's sound is a blend of folk, bluegrass and rock with flashes of country, pop and even punk to set them apart.

The Avett Brothers have released over ten albums with their first big-label produced album, I and Love and You released in June of 2009.

Beginnings

Scott and Seth Avett were the founding members of the rock band Nemo. In 2000 the brothers began experimenting with their now-famous acoustic sound and released the self-titled album "The Avett Bros.". Shortly after, Nemo disbanded and the Avett Brothers continued on releasing 11 more albums before signing with the American Recordings/Columbia Records label in 2008 to release 2009's "I and Love and You".
