Avalanche City is the brain child of Dave Baxter, a musician whose 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 epicentre of Baxter himself who writes, conceives, produces, records and
plays every instrument on this debut album. † Months after taking the
first steps towards singing, by way of scales, recording, and self critique,
Dave Baxter played his first solo show as Avalanche City. Six months after that
show, the first tracks were laid for his debut. † Baxter headed into
the countryside and moved into a little community 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.
Album comes with a†bonus disc - the 7 track Snow EP.
