"I keep telling myself that it'll be fine, you can't make everybody happy all of the time"

Seth and Scott Avett aren’t content to merely play gorgeous roots music; to just lay some lovely harmonies over banjos and strings. Performing as The Avett Brothers — with bassist Bob Crawford, cellist Joe Kwon and others — they craft alternately stompy and swoony music that’s rooted in a desire for self-improvement. Take their body of work as a whole, and it forms the outlines of a makeshift guide to life, and to being fundamentally decent in the pursuit of something even better.

Anonymous asked: Do you have a list of songs that Bob sings in? I know there's part of Good To You, Letter to a Pretty Good and I think Day That Marvin Gaye Died.

yes all of those, and he sings on Distraction #74. he sings harmonies on a good bit of songs but those are the only ones I know of off the top of my head that he sings a great bit on! (but that doesn’t mean that’s all of them lol)
