Avolition Demolition 2011: The Whole Shebang (avolition.bandcamp.com)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Avolition plays original Americana-rock-folk-pop with intelligent lyrics and lush harmonies that speak to the soul… okay, that’s a bit much. But it’s true.

Mike Hougardy is the singer/songwriter whose words and music form the heart of Avolition. Mike Nelson adds gorgeous harmony vocals and percussion, Dan Leavitt contributes heart-stopping guitar leads and harmonica, Andy Cleman drives the bass into your soul, and Rob Fraser powers the whole thing with his intricate drum lines. Mixing in the occasional cover from your favorite remembered and forgotten musicians (Billy Joel, The Jayhawks, The Band, David Bowie), Avolition’s sound brings you back to that place inside where joy and music meet. We dare you to listen without smiling. Double-dog dare you. TRIPLE-dog dare you... that’s how confident we are you’ll love these guys as much as they love playing with each other.
