Avian Aura


Stripped-down contemplative folk rock with grit and humanity. Based in Madison, WI. Gary Flesher, Jr. and Joan Herzing have been part of the fabric of the Madison-area music community for years, and are back in this fresh presentation, hoping to express what it means to be human, present and connected in an otherwise distant existence.


Vocals, Guitar / Gary Flesher Jr.
Keyboard, Accordion, Saxophone, Ukulele, Percussion, Vocals / Joan Herzing
