#10. The Rocket Summer

Release Date: February 26, 2016
Infectious, carefree and tightly produced, The Rocket Summer is always a solid pick for great music on the horizon. The PledgeMusic-funded Zoetic already has quite a bit of goodwill in the books with "Same Air," and Bryce Avary is poised to the take the next step forward with this winter's release.
        - Roger Gelwicks

The music released by Bryce Avary, the creative force and solo artist behind The Rocket Summer, is downright catchy. For fans who can't seem to keep 2012's effort, Life Will Write the Words, off repeat, it's been a long 4 years of patience that is close to an end…
        - Jeremy Barnes

For a great while, I liked one or two of Bryce Avary's songs, and even then they held more of a "guilty pleasure" status than anything. His last album made me a believer, though. Zoetic is looking rather promising for the pop rock scene this year...
