Overview: Tim Avram is a tattooed and spanked "take me home and make me like it" Punk Rocker disguised as an under-the-radar country roots musician - a wolf dressed in sheep's clothing. For the last nine years, Avram has fronted various incarnations of the last great punk band - The Mongrels. It may be surprising to some, but to me it makes perfect sense that Avram grew up learning the mandolin from Zydeco Ziggie while Grandma played the banjo as she spit chew tobacco and drooled a gooey stream of unseemly profanity.
Yep Country Punk was born.
Avram is philosophical when asked his reaction to winning this year's 25th Review Music Awards nod for Best Solo singer, "Ahhâ€¦yeah. Hmm. I don't expect anything ever. You never know. I can't always tell if the audience likes it or not during a show, the applause can beâ€¦polite. It's hard to tell if people appreciate what you're doing when you're doing what you want to do, not playing songs they want to hear and playing my songs and hoping they like it." Artist Site
