Feeling a bit camera shy


At the heart of Avenue Road is a friendship. Chris, Dave, Po, Adam, and Ryan
posses a potent chemistry of melody, rhythm and harmony, and t is the
friendship between these five men that sets this mixture ablaze. The music
they create is unique and challenging, yet it embodies a keen sense of
respect for classic songwriting. Chris Sue's articulate voice and positive
lyrics are a refreshing alternative at a time when "modern rock" is
saturated with sandpaper tone and teen-angst melodrama. In a world of over
sweetened vodka-coolers, Avenue Road produce a smooth, dark-amber rum. Their
songs will stay on your lips long after you've taken the first sip...

Avenue Road's music is always built upon a solid foundation of good
songwriting. Dave Pomeroy's jazz training and keen ear for fusion music
creates a subtle complexity in the underlying harmony of the band. The band
has dedicated itself to producing recordings that push the aural envelope.
The 2002 independent release Dont Look Down was a local hit on the Toronto
scene. The self-produced release highlights the band's groovy melodic wit as
well as Chris Sue's vulnerable and intensely personal lyric writing. With
2005's self-produced Quest EP, Pomeroy and Sue collaborated to create a
recording that is far from a conventional "pop" album. Pomeroy employed a
host of unconventional recording techniques and devices in an effort to
produce a recording that was as adventerous as it was accessible.

The Avenue Road live experience has the reputation of being spontaneous yet
polished and decisively executed. It is not uncommon for the band to
abruptly veer from their planned set list to explore the feelings and
emotions being generated by the crowd and the atmosphere in the room. Avenue
Road don't just play "to the crowd," but rather every event becomes a
journey that the band and the audience embark upon together. Each leads the
other, yet no one knows where they may end up. The audience becomes an
integral part of making each step in that journey original and

The delivery and intensity of the Avenue Road live experience is unmatched.

"We feel that we are all just really lucky to be alive. Life is short, and
at the heart of it all is that we're all just happy to be here and to have
the opportunity to express how we feel. We love to celebrate." This sums up
the tone of Avenue Road. They have an inexhaustible love of music and its
ability to express emotion. Together, they continue to produce a body of
work that is beautiful and prolific. Avenue Road are for those who
appreciate detail, but see the big picture. At all times their music has an
underlying sense of optimism. "Life is a gift. We're doing what we can do
return the favour." This is good music. This is AVENUE ROAD.
