L’Avventura is a San Francisco-based rock band. Formed in 2005, the group consists of Jeff Davis (vocals, guitar), Fergus Griffin (guitar, vocals), Aldo Silver (bass guitar, vocals), Stevie Utstein (cello, keyboards, vocals), Art McConnell(Drums), Shaina Evoniuk (violin, vocals), and Helen Aki (guitar, vocals). The band places a heavy emphasis on classic songwriting and draws influences from a wide variety of artists including Roxy Music, T-Rex, ELO, The Clash, Bob Dylan, Belle and Sebastien, Elvis Costello, and The Beach Boys, to name a few. Before forming L’Avventura, Davis, Griffin and Silver played in San Francisco band, Niagara, from 1999 until 2003. Niagara released two LPs, Niagara 01 and Niagara 02. In 2004, Davis, Griffin and Silver formed a new 7-piece band, L’Avventura.

That Summer, Davis and Griffin set up camp in a friend’s mountain cabin in Woodside California, and composed the songs that would become L'Avventura's debut, “Your Star Was Shining”. To capture these songs on tape, the three enlisted San Francisco producer Bond Bergland, and friends like producer Jeff Saltzman (Green Day, Two Gallants, The Killers) and drummer Michael Urbano (Sheryl Crow, Cake, John Hiatt). “Your Star Was Shining” is a tuneful collection of rock-songs with an emphasis on songwriting. “Swandive” thumps with a T-Rex swagger, while “Nightmare Blues” sounds like Jimmy Reed meeting Stereolab at the crossroads. “Olivia” feels like a surf-battle between Brian’s Eno and Wilson, while Nick Drake and the Fool On The Hill seem to join forces in the acoustic tune, “Rocket Sue”.

"Your star was shining" is scheduled for release on February 15th, 2009. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
