Avant Gardner was borne out of the creation and subsequent demise of numerous bands and collaborations over a period of 12 years. Sick of the constant struggle to get numerous individuals to work as an enthusiastic, like-minded team, coupled with the logistical nightmares involved with orchestrating weekly practises, (not to mention impending ego's) Avant Gardner decided to strike out on his own. Instead of wasting precious time questioning the Why's and How's of a Bands disintegration and looking for someone to blame, Avant Gardner decided to go it alone, come what may, he can only blame himself this time! And so, 10 years after his last ill-fated collaboration, and utilising a wardrobe for the majority of that time as his only refuge, Avant was able to fulfil his passion for Writing, Playing, Recording and Producing. 6 self-financed albums and 90 songs later, Avant felt it was time to take a break from Writing and Recording so that he could take the music to the people. Without a band to back him up, Avants taken to performing solo Acoustic gigs around the City to offer an alternative Live take on his recorded offerings.
Avant Gardner believes in using Music as a platform to give an alternative, truly independent approach to Music.
