Hailing from Fort Worth Texas, Bryce Avary, the singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist known as The Rocket Summer, has been creating music ever since he can remember. Having played every instrument on all six of his full-length albums including Calendar Days, Hello Good Friend, Do You Feel, Of Men and Angels, Life Will Write The Words and Zoetic, Avary is able to cohesively debut a lush, layered, and exuberant indie alt-rock pop sound to cult-like fans around the world. The Rocket Summer has gained a reputation not only for Avary’s multi-threat talent in the studio, but for his and his bands energetic live shows.

Since launching his career as a 16-year-old with the independently released The Rocket Summer EP, Bryce Avary released several albums on Island/DefJam, toured around the world selling out venues not just in the US, but Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and Japan, while playing such noted festivals as Glastonbury, T in the Park, Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival, Soundwave, Austin City Limits, Bamboozle and Vans Warped Tour.

“I like the term ‘young veteran,’” says Avary. “We have this loyal, hardcore following and I couldn’t be more grateful for this." You can hear those loyal fans on this 16-track career-spanning live album download, appropriately called Bryce Avary, His Instruments and Your Voices, captured on his acoustic tour in 2012.
