Birds of Avalon is a rock band from Raleigh, North Carolina whose sound fuses elements of psychedelic and progressive rock. The band consists of Cheetie Kumar (guitar), David Mueller (bass), Scott Nurkin (drums), Paul Siler (guitar), and Craig Tilley (vocals, keyboards).
After a 7-year stint in The Cherry Valence, guitarists Cheetie Kumar and Paul Siler felt a growing desire to move on. In a final whirlwind year that saw The Cherry Valence touring Europe multiple times, the couple, Kumar and Siler, got married and left the group. They began playing with Craig Tilley (The Weather), where they laid the foundation for what was to become the first batch of Birds Of Avalon songs. They added drummer Scott Nurkin (Dynamite Brothers) and soon added David Mueller on bass.
Birds Of Avalon has been praised in media outlets; according to CityBeat, they “can tear it up in a three-minute barn-burner or lure you into an extended psychedelic journey, wandering schizophrenically like a Brian May guitar solo."
Since their inception in 2005, Birds Of Avalon have toured extensively, sharing the stage with bands such as The Flaming Lips, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, The Raconteurs, The Fucking Champs, Oneida, Mudhoney, Valient Thorr, Vetiver, Federation X, and Drunk Horse. They have also supported The Hold Steady a few times.
