Portrait of Cedar Avenue
“Someday soon I’ll do the things I been saying…” begins the title track for Cedar Avenue’s debut CD. And someday soon may actually be now for the Twin Cities-based pop-rock group. After years of playing and headlining in Minneapolis’ leading clubs and venues (and across the Midwest), the group spent a month last year in a studio working on their first full-length CD.

And that long preparation has paid off.

It’s rare that a contemporary music group can set tasty hooks in such a rich musical landscape on their first, totally independent, full-length release. Yet that is exactly what Cedar Avenue delivers with its 10-track debut.

Known in the Twin Cities for their remarkable vocal performances, as well as their ability to draw wildly diverse crowds of college hipsters, middle-aged women and teenyboppers, Cedar Avenue has impressed audiences throughout the Midwest, opening for huge sold-out crowds with acts such as Augustana, A Fine Frenzy, and Graham Colton.

The buzz and local success surrounding this acoustic-synth-rock band, fronted by husband and wife duo Jesse and Derrin Mathews, has positioned Cedar Avenue to the brink of national, break-out success.

And as Jesse belts in the title track, “All I need is a possibility”—that’s what the group has certainly garnered with their gem-studded debut album.
