The Avett Brothers begin another new era of folk with their seventh full-length album, and first for American Recordings/Republic Records, The Carpenter. Produced by the legendary Rick Rubin and recorded in North Carolina and Malibu, it's an artful distillation of classic homegrown folk, rock energy, bluegrass soul and pop charm. In 2009, the group made mainstream waves with their lauded major label debut, I and Love and You. It landed at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered unanimous critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Paste, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Time, who even dubbed it one of Top 10 albums of the year. In addition to touring tirelessly, they gave memorable performances on the Late Show with David Letterman, the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as well as during a feature spot on the PBS series Austin City Limits. In 2001, banjoist Scott Avett and guitarist Seth Avett formed The Avett Brothers with standup bass player Bob Crawford. Growing up in Concord, NC, the boys immersed themselves in their musician dad's record collection, falling in love with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Since then, they've become genre stalwarts over the course of six albums, including 2007's acclaimed Emotionalism. However, The Carpenter is the group's richest and most rewarding record yet. The next chapter for The Avett Brothers has commenced.
