Who are the Avett Brothers everyone's talking about? They are siblings Scott and Seth, plus bassist Bob Crawford from North Carolina and together they create a kind of grassroots American musical magic! That magic is abundantly evident on I and Love and You, the Avett Brothers’ big-label debut.
Its 13 songs are delivered in a style that defies pigeonholing but might be described as a rootsy amalgam of folk, country, bluegrass, rock and pop – even a jab of punk-style dynamics here and there. Drawn by the naked honesty of their songs and the rousing intensity of their live shows, legendary producer and talent scout Rick Rubin signed the Avett Brothers to his American Recordings label in 2008. Enough said!
