Bio

Avocado started back in 2008. The current sound comes from a melding of Dave's eclectic tastes and his ongoing fascination with what makes a song "catchy," coupled with the expansive musical vocabulary and seemingly endless influences of the contributing band members. All three members of Avocado bring a variety of styles to the table. Dave is heavily influenced by classical, jazz, and indie rock. Chris comes from r&b and jazz roots, but has played in all kinds of settings, from metal to hip-hop. Aaron contributes a background in Latin and World music, contributing a funky/jazzy pocket to the music that other "indie" bands often lack.

Dave writes all of the lyrics with an awareness of contemporary poetry. Approachable and emotional, yet at the same time cerebral, images and metaphors spin narratives within intricate melodies. Musically, Avocado strives to cross as many genre lines as possible to create an interesting foundation for the lyrics to build upon.

All of these seemingly disparate parts come together and are woven into something that toes the line between pop, jazz, rock, and whatever else creeps in. Always engaging, and always enjoyable.
