Every Avenue

In a recent interview, mid-western pop rockers Every Avenue were asked a question that would normally be difficult to answer: “How would you describe your sound?” For vocalist Dave Strauchman the answer was simple: “We sound like Every Avenue.” His response could not be more true. Every Avenue blends a style that is innovative and reminiscent of a time in rock and roll when the name of the game was simply to have fun.
