Slim White & The Averys / Press

“There are "country" bands, and then there are country bands. Slim White & the Averys? Straight from the honky tonk. Imagine the band you'd find playing in a run-down truck stop along some godforsaken Deep South highway, the kind where they cut the whiskey with tears if they cut it at all... Debut album "Greeting From Hangover Town"... is laced with Bakersfield balladry potent enough to instantly turn any setting into a saloon. ”

“As country went off the rails with the Darth Vader of suburban Nashville, Garth Brooks, guys like the Averys just gritted their teeth all the harder and loved the real deal with even more dedication.- John Petric”

“Slim White and The Averys is one of the best roots music bands around. Steeped in classic country and singing about whickey, women and the strength to survive, 'Greetings From Hangover Town' is one of the best new records of the year. ”

"Nobody has to tell us what good music is---we know it when we hear it. We may not know (or care for that matter) whether they’re calling it roots or Americana or plain old country---but we sure know how it makes us feel. It gets our toes tapping, it gets our hearts racing, and it puts a smile on weary faces. Slim White and The Averys feel like that. And whether it’s Slim’s easy-going drawl or the joyful, tight musicianship of The Averys, you can tell right away that these guys are having a ball---and that’s what makes seeing them so much fun for us. The word “authentic” gets bandied around a lot these days, and it’s really just a fancy way of noting that somebody means exactly what it is they’re saying. Well, my friends, Slim White and The Averys mean every word of it, and that's what I call the real thing." -billy zenn

"Slim White and the Averys are a great asset to the local music scene. It's nice to have a band out there playing the classic country sound. It's hard to find that anywhere these days, especially in a local club. Also, they are all great guys and you can tell they truly love what they do."-Bart Jenkins

"If you’ve got any life left in your heart, the Averys will have you on your feet dancing at live shows (or at the very least tapping your feet if you’re a wallflower) and their catchy songs will be running through your head long after you listen to them. They are authentic, and they’ve certainly got chops, but more importantly they are enjoying themselves as they make upbeat, melodic country music that will make you smile (and order another shot)." -Lydia Loveless

"In a time when most music is a cocktail of influences, Sim White and the Averys are a straight, unfiltered shot of country. They remind us of the days when the terms 'country', 'western', and 'honky tonk' actually referred to the music being played and not just the labels marketing it. As a country-influenced artist they keep me honest. As a musician they keep me interested. And as a fan of country music they put a smile on my face every time I hear them live." -Phillip Fox

“Slim White and the colorful characters that make up The Avery's are a must see of the Columbus Music scene. Their shows conjure up the days of old when everyone came together to sing and dance, to forget their troubles. In addition to covering many Bakersfield favorites, their growing collection of originals will be stuck in your head the day after the show, already feeling like an old favorite!”

"If the adage that nice guys finish last is true, the Averys don't stand a chance. But if there's merit awarded for playing country music like it was meant to be played, they'll be in great shape. I've been a fan since I first heard them. Super excited to hear their new record!"
