In a digital age driven by likes and "authentic posts,” the Avett Brothers offer their contributions toward different ends.

Another season of Lent is upon us and that means it's time for another round of our Lenten Soundtrack.

Grab your favorite festive drink and snuggle up by a toasty fire with our Christmas playlist. We hope the songs are a gift of Christmas cheer, hope, and jollity this Advent season. Good tidings and happy listening.

So saddle up and settle in with the rhythms of these autumnal jams. From our hearts to yours.
