The alternative rock group Avian (formerly Avian Sunrise) formed in the latter part of 2008 during the frigid winter months in South Dakota. Shortly after their establishment as a band, vocalist Bryan Wehrkamp’s sister lost her battle with depression. This tragedy would become a major driving force for Wehrkamp and the rest of the members to write music that can connect with others, no matter what facet of life one is going through. Meeting the listener at eye-level with each song has and always will be the group’s central purpose when writing and performing.
