The Avett Brothers x Leo Romero project didn’t come out of thin air. It’s not some brainchild idea of a couple of marketing dudes trying to create something “cool”. Screw that! It’s much simpler than that. Leo’s been a fan of the band for quite some time. He was introduced to the brothers through a mutual friend. From that point on, they realized they had more in common than they thought. They became friends. The Avett’s and Romero take on life in similar ways, even though they're embedded in different cultures in what they do for a living. Outside of their venues and concerts, The Avett Brothers are two down to earth guys. They don’t take things too seriously. Leo’s the same. If you meet Leo off the board it’d be hard to imagine this fun loving jokester crushes skate spots and lights the average skate demo on fire. Likewise, when the Avett’s take the stage, they hand themselves over to the show and fans, completely. The Avett Brothers and Leo Romero are passionate about what they do; they’re in sync with each other, from different paths, bridged together to form one shared way of life.
