Hamilton native, Avery Raquel, started in the entertainment industry at a young age, having appeared on television, in commercials, radio ads, for a Disney animated television series, and even a number of professional stage productions across Canada.
Her passion for singing quickly grew, and has led to an impressive list of career accomplishments on her musical resume. She has earned audience acclaim, critical kudos and peer respect as a vocalist of rare talent, and has recently entered into an exciting new chapter in her developing success story, as a songwriter.
In collaboration with Juno-winning, noted Toronto producer/songwriter/musician Greg Kavanagh, Avery has written accomplished new songs that appear on her second solo album, Without A Little Rain, released in Spring 2017.
Stylistically, the new record incorporates some fresh new elements, as Avery explains, “I see this album more as having a contemporary Soul style, reminiscent of artists such as Norah Jones, Corrine Bailey Rae and even Amy Winehouse, opening doors to new audiences. I think of it as a really nice blend of different styles and genres.”
Without A Little Rain, and Avery’s songwriting have already received glowing reviews, airplay across the country, including CBC Radio, and charting positions, including debuting on the iTunes Top 200 Album Chart at #31.
Avery Raquel has also garnered numerous vocal awards over the years, and has excelled in music festivals, and concerts around the country, delivering winning performances, while sharing the stage with prominent Canadian artists such as Holly Cole, Matt Dusk, David Clayton Thomas among others.
Performing across the country and continuing to write exciting contemporary songs, towards her 3rd album, Avery is poised to be the break-out artist she is destined to become.
