Alumni

From Richmond, Virginia, Avers offers an ethereal swirl of psychedelic pop, shoegaze, and garage rock. Formed with The Head and the Heart's Tyler Williams on drums, the group includes James Mason, James Lloyd Hodges, Charlie Glenn, alumna Alexandra Spalding '09 (professional music), and Adrian Olsen '08 (music business/management and music production and engineering) swapping between bass, guitar, and keyboard.

Olsen also serves as producer/engineer and owns the recording studio, Montrose Recording, where most of the group's album material is recorded, including its 2014 debut LP, Empty Light.
