Primary Instrument: Vocal
When Margret Avery did her first performance as a singer in NYC her love affair began with entertaining and continues to grow. Since then Margret has gone on to writing some of her own songs while keeping an audience spellbound while expressing some thought provoking material as well as some classic jazz and blues, pop-rock and ballads.
While in Paris some years ago Margret had the pleasure of singing with Duke Jordan in an impromptu performance and she has graced the stages in New York. Lee Ryan at WBAI- FM in New York told his listeners that “Margret Avery’s musicality includes a good voice, breath control for a nice long line and a sense of rhythm....a fine singer with her own smart, funny style (another proof that the sexiest part of the body is still the brain). The icing on this tasty cake is that Avery obviously loves entertaining us!”
In 2002 Margret released her first CD which is a combination of original material as well as blues and jazz ballads. Many find her interpretations to be soulful.... laced with her individual phrasing in each song. You can check out her site at www.cdbaby.com/cd/mavery1
‘A Place That’s Make Believe’ puts Avery’s sultry, alluring vocals on full display. Her signature vocal personality glows from a voice that is as smooth as fine liqueur and equally as intoxicating. It’s a slow but passionate song, drenched in melody and awash in atmosphere. Avery’s stunning performance on ‘A Place That’s Make Believe’ conjures a rainbow of emotional reactions : love, regret, sadness, melancholy and more.

…. “most of the material heard on A Place That’s Make Believe is quite fresh and full of insightful lyrics. Joined by a four-piece rhythm section that includes guitarist Kenny Brescia, Margret Avery (who is mostly heard in New York) manages to be both emotional and laidback, direct yet subtle. This is an intriguing set, available from myspace.com/margretavery.” Los Angeles Jazz Scene / Scott Yanow
“Margret Avery’s voice is so clear and sultry that you have to hear it to believe it. She has her own definitive style, innate musicality and affinity for jazz and blues. Her interpretations offer a twist of the unexpected in her original work as well as familiar songs. She’s a little like Ella mixed with some k.d.lang and Dusty Springfield with a soul that sobs the blues and a spirit that sings to the angels. Shouldn’t miss it” Christina Varga, talk show host
