Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, Avalanche City is the musical moniker of Dave Baxter.
His critically acclaimed debut album Our New Life Above Ground featured 5x Platinum single Love, Love, Love. Following breakout success in 2011, Baxter spent unhurried months in his home studio, a leafy backyard room affectionately named The Treehouse. He surrounded himself with a cadre of old instruments and invented the familiar, yet evolved songs that would become his latest album, We Are For The Wild Places (2015).
The album peaked at #3 on the NZ album charts and #1 on iTunes. The lead single Inside Out was certified Platinum in New Zealand achieving #1 spot on the NZ single charts, and #1 position at Radio in NZ for 5 consecutive weeks. The single also won Best Music Video at the 2016 NZ Music Awards.
Avalanche City has toured globally, including headline runs throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as international support tour alongside the likes of Fun, Robbie Williams and Conrad.
