Texas native Bryce Avary, the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist mastermind behind The Rocket Summer, has released four albums to date including his latest Of Men and Angels. Musically, Avary is a one-man show though he tours with several longtime friends.

Bryce has toured around the world, selling out venues not just in the US, but Canada, the UK and Japan, while playing such noted events as the Glastonbury Festival and T in the Park.

In addition, Avary is very involved with both the Invisible Children and his own charitable organisation “Call It Captivate”, a clothing line that donates 25 per cent of sales to several different charities. He performed the White House last summer in connection with his support of Invisible Children, an organisation dedicated to rescuing children who have been kidnapped and enlisted against their will into the Ugandan army.
