Listen now

The wait is finally over for singer/songwriter Bryce Avery of the Rocket Summer. On February 23rd 2010 his fourth studio record, Of Men and Angels came out. This record is the a look into a very long journey into the life of this Texas prodigy. This record is a journal into Bryce’s life from faith to the hills and valleys, humbling himself to giving up fame for the presence of God. It has been a long journey for all of us this past year and Bryce is the songbird singing our songs that is our spirits to find our investment in the Maker. Favorite songs are “Something to Live For,” the title track and “Nothing Matters.”
