Avett Brothers Featured on NPR
The Avett Brothers will release their latest album, The Carpenter, next month. The album was recorded in Asheville during a challenging time for the band. NPR recently aired a touching interview with the band.
The Avett Brothers are real-life siblings Scott (left) and Seth Avett (right), and bass player Bob Crawford. The band's newest album, recorded in Asheville, is The Carpenter.
In 2009, The Avett Brothers became one of the surprise hits of the year. Paste Magazine considered their I and Love and You the best album of that year, calling it "an overpowering acoustic album brimming with sadness and soul."
That sadness took on new meaning recently. Bassist Bob Crawford took a temporary leave from the band to tend to his infant daughter, Hallie, after she developed a brain tumor.
Next month, The Avett Brothers release a new album, The Carpenter, which explores the delicate balance between life and death.
