Cousin Avery
Cousin Avery
Cousin Avery is a folk rock band from Kalamazoo, writing and performing songs that capture an addictive acoustic bluegrass essence with soaring strings, heartfelt vocals, plucking banjo, and a shuffling rhythm. The group carefully grows each song to connect with listeners whether on the dance floor or diving into their hearts. People discover a bond with the music and it becomes a connection for everyone.

Cousin Avery began writing and performing in 2014 with influences that would include Mumford and Sons, The Decemberists, and Bob Dylan.

"The group focuses on the beauty that comes with not only great music and a compelling melody, but the realization that everything around you can teach you something new and, just maybe, help you brighten the world." – Matt Marn - Local Spins

They released the album Steady in 2016, and Along The Way in 2018, and shared the stage with performers such as Chris Bathgate, The Last Revel, Ben Daniels Band, Chicago Farmer, Breathe Owl Breathe, Who Hit John?, Fauxgrass, and Big Dudee Roo. They have performed at the Buttermilk Jamboree, and been featured on WYCE Local Spins, and WOOD TV eightWest.
