Brooklyn based singer/songwriter/guitarist Avi Fox-Rosen is quickly emerging as a distinctive voice in music. 2007 is a milestone year as Avi independently releases two full-length records: "One" and "The Amazing Frozen String Quartet". This marks the beginning of what promises to be a significant and prolific career in music. "One" is a record that spans a huge range of sounds, textures, emotions, and settings. Each listen reveals new layers to appreciate. Ringing acoustic guitars collide with majestic string quartet arrangements; a lilting falsetto is offset by lap steel feedback; poetic musings are painted in simple melodies, rich textures, and danceable grooves. "One" is a record that is unmistakably fresh and distinctive, yet hearkens back to classic, lush recordings of the mid 70s. It establishes Avi both as a songwriter grounded in the simple meeting of words and melody, and as an album conceptualist who is able to realize his work in it's full spectrum of sound.
