Avers
Avers
Inspired by chance encounter, Avers was formed over the course of ten nights of writing and recording–an absence of expectation, and the beauty of an unexpected result.

Chemistry, a substance generally cultivated on rare occasion, materialized instantly while members James-Lloyd Hodges (Farm Vegas), James Mason (The Mason Brothers), Adrian Olsen (Hypercolor), Alexandra Spalding (Lost in the Trees) and Tyler Williams (The Head and The Heart) explored ideas and sounds that resulted in their debut album, Empty Light. Within the confines of a two-hundred-year-old farm that houses Montrose Recording (Richmond, VA), ghosts echoing from a Flickinger console once owned by Sparklehorse; fires burned until first morning light. Five new friends trusting in the unexpected, following the creative tide. These elements reveal the heart and soul of the band itself.

Avers is defined by creation within a moment – a trust that music recorded so close to its inspiration has a certain magic that is valid/rare in a world of over-thought perfection. Their debut spans a psychedelic spectrum of musical light; ethereal, cathartic, and illuminated from within by raw emotion, blending the aural colors which fill the space of Empty Light.

Philadelphia's OLDERMOST have been called "Atmosphericana Rockers" whose "sound is gorgeous and expansive, blending traditional songwriting motifs and blue-eyed soul harmonies with an uplifting and emphatically modern guitar rock attack ... with a surplus of texture and ambition, one that doesn’t recognize the self-imposed barriers you typically find in the Americana scene," (WXPN's The Key). They "mix pop elements with nodes of soulful Americana and alternative rock laying the foundation for Bucknum’s booming voice," (thatmusicmag.org).
