"Avalon" is a Contemporary Christian group from Nashville, Tennessee, USA known for their harmonic singing and somewhat electronic sound.
Avalon was formed by Grant Cunningham, former A&R representative for Sparrow Records. Cunningham was in search of a vocalist group that could sing tight harmonies and carry God's message to the world. Cunningham publicized his intentions and demo tapes flooded him, but nothing fit for what he wanted.
After letting the desire for Avalon to rest a while, Cunningham visited a coffee shop to listen to a potential singer one day. However, another artist, Michael Passons, actually caught his attention. Cunningham contacted Passons about his plan for Avalon. Passons prayed about God's will and then decided this was where God was leading him.
Soon after, Truth vocalist Janna Long (at the time, Janna Potter) heard of the intentions for Avalon. Long then contacted Cunningham and made a time for an audition. Cunningham liked what he heard and knew Long was to be a part of Avalon.
