 The Avett Brothers’ big-label debut is their album titled “I and Love and You.”

 Legendary producer and talent scout Rick Rubin, who signed the Avett Brothers – consisting of siblings Scott and Seth, plus bassist Bob Crawford – to his American Recordings label in 2008, says “As soon as I heard the depth in their singing and songwriting, I was in for the ride.”

Rubin has worked with some of the most talented mavericks in the business, including Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and The Dixie Chicks. Rubin says, “The Avetts’ songs have such a sincere emotional resonance. The purity of the messages stops you in your tracks. It’s unusual to hear such open-hearted personal sentiment from young artists today.”
