Avery Gardner continues to carve the niche he started nearly ten
years ago when he picked up the four-string duty as a favor to a
friend. The 25-year-old bassist and music entrepreneur began his
musical studies on the cello and guitar as a small child. Since his early
start, Gardner has asserted himself both as a capable musician and as
an entertaining character.
"The bass rattles me in all the right places," he quips. "In my mind,
the bass is the most important thing happening. It controls the whole
dynamic and feel of music on albums and live performances alike.
Gardner, an experienced player in genres ranging from jazz to heavy
metal and country, expresses his musical sensibilities best through the
bass. "The bass is what makes you bob your head, stomp your feet,
throw up the goat, or whatever it is that you do when you hear music
that is fulfilling to you," Since his start on the four-string nearly a
decade ago, Gardner has played over 1200 shows throughout the
country and has been featured on over 15 albums belonging to artists
of varying genres.
