... Positive energy, positive thought and positive action; it's been an amazingly powerful mantra for Atlanta, GA Rock & Rollers Avenue of the Giants.
"There's an energy that you can feel coming out of the performance that just makes everything feel in its proper place" states lead guitarist Foz Rock. "I feel like every experience in life, good and bad, has led me to the music we are currently creating; it's a great place to be."
When asked about the origin of the name Foz paints a darker set of circumstances leading to a personal revelation.
"We were on a west coast tour and I had someone slip something into my drink. It was a bad night, had to go the hospital, just an overall bad scene. Well, the show had to go on; as much as I didn't want to do anything other than lay in that bed and shut out the world, I knew we had another place to be... On that drive through Northern California I woke up to see the sign for the Avenue of the Giants highway and the name perked my interest. Little did I know that those next few miles would be life changing, but they honestly were. I felt a clarity in those woods, around those giant redwood trees, it was the peace I needed after having just nearly died the night before. I knew then that I needed to make a change and Avenue was that change."
That experience base is extensive as Foz Rock had spent the better part of the previous decade touring the world with the crossover hit-makers / RIAA Gold Certified act REHAB ("Sittin' at a Bar"); sharing the stage with Kid Rock, Uncle Kracker, Fallout Boy, Yelawolf, Blink-182, and countless others in the process.
Joining Foz in Avenue of the Giants are industry professionals Darrick Atwater(Lead Vocals) a schooled engineer, producer, and Artist in his own write. Holding down the beats is Bram Bessoff, formerly the drummer in Soup, and Dylan Earnhardt on bass.
