Annavox is a trio. Two men and a woman. Two guitars and a cello. Three radically different voices joining together, crafting original music that will likely earn the classification "folk-rock."

"All Day Breathing," is Annavox's 11-song debut album. The sound shifts between sweet melodies and quiet tension, unfolding like a conversation between the musicians. Even in the absence of a drum kit, Annavox manages to come across as rhythmic and percussive. The cello, jumping back and forth between melodic leads and bassey pizzicato, emits a full range of sounds, from eerie to angry to mournful. The voices - one throaty female, a sweet male falsetto, and a soulful baritone - switch off from song to song and occasionally join forces.

Annavox has been writing and playing together since the fall of 2000. Their songs explore what most songs explore: love,
impermanence, independence, politics, compassion, and airplanes. Singer/songwriter Laurel Brauns says "Annavox maintains the folk tradition by allowing their stories to come through on every song. Ranging from socio-political to the complexity of love relationships, the overriding theme on this album is a hunger for self-awareness..."


"Annavox is easily one of Portland's most original and creative bands. Match sturdy musicianship with finely crafted songs and intense live performances and you've got a hit in my book. Annavox draws from a very eclectic bag of musical styles ranging from neo-classical (in the style of Silver Mt Zion to Amber Asylum) to well written pop (Elliott Smith meets Belle and Sebastian) and finally, two acoustic guitars and cello, and you automatically get a folk reference."

Daniel O'Meara

Gotta love that cello.
Annavox is a splendidly beautiful and unique trio. They are quintessential modern folk and obvious talents. This album is quite refreshing and has a very high replay value. The cello is used to great effect particularly in Xmas, my favorite track on the disc. I highly recommend this album for fans of modern folk music.
