Avalanche City are a New Zealand folk music band from Auckland. The group was originally a solo project of Dave Baxter; however, after he released his first album Our New Life Above The Ground he assembled a group of musicians, namely Ben Duncan on drums; Johnny Brock on bass; Ben Tolich on keyboards and manjo; Strahan Cole on electric guitar, banjo, ukulele and backing vocals and Romelli Rodriguez on violin, glockenspiel, piano accordion and percussion. Baxter completed his album, and then made it available for free download on the internet. He was expecting only a few hundred copies to be downloaded, but after more than 10,000 downloads he took it offline, and began to market it.
