 Nashville, Tennessee, USA
BandAmericanaRock

The Avery Set is one of those bands that doesn't really fit into a "genre" of music. This group embodies aspects of classic rock and roll, country, blues and folk music-- presented in a progressive, new style that has yet to be heard by today's listener.

Biography

The Avery Set is a strong cocktail of sorts. Capable of seamlessly transcending genres such as rock, country and folk, Nashville-based The Avery Set will whisk you away in a time machine back to the 50’s to shake hands with Johnny Cash, stop to have tea with Leonard Cohen, and finally, talk politics with Conor Oberst. It all started in a small, Michigan tourist town with high school friends, singer/songwriter Chris Zehnder and drummer Jake Bartlett. “Jake and I have been playing music together going on six years now. We know each other’s styles so well, it’s almost as if we can talk without speaking”, says Zehnder. With Brandon Harris on guitar and Shawn Supra on upright and electric bass, The Avery Set has been playing in support of their latest record, Returning to Steam. The album was received with wild applause from a sold out theatre in their home state, receiving illustrious media attention and even deemed a “masterpiece” by the Review Magazine. These four young friends and their ability to make music together are the key ingredients for a successful future.
