Avalon Lyrics * Avalon in the news * Avalon Albums and Songs
Avalon is a legendary, mythical island paradise
where King Arthur sailed off to at the end of his life, having
long searched for the Holy Grail. Avalon, mythically speaking
then, is heaven.
The vocal group Avalon was originally comprised
of Jody McBrayer, Janna Potter, Michael Passons and Cherie Paliotta.
As of 12/01/02, Paliotta has left the group, and brand new member
Melissa Greene joins Avalon.

"All," THE CREED is the first Avalon studio project to feature
new members Greg Long and Melissa Greene, who are joined by group
founders Jody McBrayer and Janna Long. Partnering with the production
dream-team of Brown Bannister, Tedd T., and Charlie Peacock, THE
CREED showcases a second-to-none collection of unforgettable,
soulful new Christian music. Years in the making, THE CREED brings
Avalon back to stores everywhere February 24TH.
"After three years of spiritual reckoning,
Avalon has discovered that real life isn't possible until you
surrender what you think you know and simply trust.like a child.in
the One who created you. That difficult discovery is the soul
of The Creed, an autobiographical, musical reflection on what
it means to surrender, on what faith in the midst of the storm
looks like. It's this group's most cohesive, most satisfying work
in nine years of vocal artistry." - Sparrow
