After reaching the top of the Billboard Rock Charts with his previous albums Do You Feel, Of Men And Angels, and the self-released Life Will Write The Words, The Rocket Summer's sixth album, Zoetic, marks a creative milestone for Texas-born songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Bryce Avary. The sonically and emotionally compelling tunes ''Same Air,'' ''Cold War,'' and ''Help Me Out'' showcase Bryce's mature songwriting skills and studio mastery, while tapping into a wellspring of edgy inspiration that reflects the unique creative journey that produced the album.
''It's the most alive music I've ever made,'' Bryce says of Zoetic. ''I think that's why it sounds a bit different, because it's raw, creative expression with zero expectation or rules of any kind.'' With never-ending support from a faithful legion of fans around the world, Zoetic is poised to kickstart the next phase of The Rocket Summer.
Bryce’s genuine, personal style of writing is the foundation for his deeply kinetic and emotional connection to fans. With fan voices often singing every word louder than the band, The Rocket Summer shows are an indie tour de force, with a laundry list of touring accomplishments from headlining the world over, including the AP Tour, Austin City Limits, Glastonbury (England), T In The Park (Scotland), Summer Sonic (Japan), Soundwave (Australia), and Parachute (New Zealand). The Rocket Summer has sold over 250,000 albums and over 500,000 singles in the U.S. alone.
This guy is so talented| Posted February 16, 2010
I wasn't a big fan of this band until I realized just how talented Mr. Avery truly is- plays all the instruments, writes all his music, produces his record- seriously the guy is talented.
