The story is this: "Answer my call" is the debut of Detroit's own Avenue. At the time of this recording in early 2004, 4 of 5 members of the band were in their late teens. What could youth like this possibly have to offer up to new music listeners? Everything! Their youthful perspective comes into focus with the five songs on this disc. In this post 9/11 era music can act as a panacea and the exotic vocal vibrato of Rachele Guastella affords a soothing and sincere quality making her performances on "Come now hope" and "Headlines" standout tracks. Guitarist/vocalist Mark Pillotto draws on some serious introspection with the blues flavored track "Destiny" and delivers raw power with the song "Hero". Guitarist/vocalist Todd Schoeneman's vocal performance on "Be There" speaks for itself with a chorus hook worthy of primetime TV! All the tracks on this disc are fueled with great rhythmic fortitude by Jay McGlone. Look for future music from this band and it's members!
