Avalon Lyrics * 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.

Led by the hit single, "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 Records
