Born in April 2012, IamAVL stands for Indepedent Arts and Music of Asheville. We exist in order to expand the reach of Asheville’s creative community. IamAVL.com features episodic audio and video content of what’s happening on the streets, in the clubs, and in the studio. We aim to create an archive of the vibrant art and music culture that exists here in Asheville. One of our primary goals is to share the amazing cultural renaissance that is taking place in Asheville and the surrounding area with the rest of the world. In doing so, IamAVL also supplys a tool for bands, comedians, and artists to further their reach beyond our city, for businesses to gain exposure, and for visitors from all over to take a look at what Asheville’s art and music scene has to offer.
