AVALANCHE CITY ~ Our new Life Above the ground

AVALANCHE CITY ~ Our new Life Above the ground

Avalanche City is the brain child of Dave Baxter, a musician who's background stretches across many genres and influences culminating in a sound that is an impressive and eclectic range of various instruments, melodies and harmonies. The depth and perspective create a dynamic atmosphere that is rich and raw all at once. The epicentre of Avalanche City is Baxter himself who writes, conceives, produces, records and plays every instrument on this debut album 'Our New Life Above The Ground'. The story of Avalanche City begins in a house, alone, for hours and hours each day for months, slowly learning how to sing by process of scales, recording, and self critique. Six months after taking the first steps towards singing, Dave Baxter played his first solo show as Avalanche City. Six months after the first show, one year after beginning the process of teaching himself how to sing, the first tracks were laid for his debut.Armed with a sack full of vegetarian single serve curries Dave Baxter headed into the countryside and moved into a little community hall called the Kourawhero Hall, just north of Auckland. There he spent the week alone recording and playing everything himself with only the cows and the milk trucks as company. The stunning result is Avalanche City's debut album 'Our New Life above the Ground.'
