Canadian, singer/songwriter, and recording artist Avery Raquel, started in the entertainment industry at a very young age. From television and radio, to animation, voice-over work and a number of professional stage productions across Canada, Avery’s passion for performing grew.
All the while, Avery kept honing her craft as a vocalist of rare talent, which has led to an impressive list of career accomplishments on her musical resume.
In April, 2018, Avery released her 3rd full length solo project, ‘My Heart Away’. Comprised of all original music, one can discern that Avery has matured into a strong songwriter, with catchy melodies, compelling lyrics and a real sense of musicality, not often seen from someone so young.
This 3rd offering further moves Avery from her Jazz roots into more mainstream Soul/ RnB, which is exactly where she wants to be. Calling her sound contemporary soul, Avery hopes the music and words resonate with a wider demographic, as she shares her experience of love, loss, and happiness. The first single from that album, ‘Come Right Back To You’ debuted on the iTunes Canada Top 200 RnB/Soul song chart at #23, while the album itself debuted at #11 on the Canadian iTunes Top 200 RnB/Soul chart.
Though relatively new to songwriting, Avery, in collaboration with Juno-winning, Canadian producer/songwriter/musician Greg Kavanagh, began writing songs that appeared on her second solo album, ‘Without A Little Rain’, released in April 2017. The album received charting positions, including debuting on the iTunes Canada Top 200 RnB/Soul album chart at #31.
