Canadian singer/songwriter and Billboard charting artist, Avery Raquel is no stranger to the stage. This teenaged Contemporary Soul/Pop phenomenon started in the entertainment industry at a very young age. From television, for the likes of DreamWorks, to animation for Disney, voice-over work, commercials and radio, as well as 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 late 2018, Avery Raquel released her 3rd solo album, ‘My Heart Away’, which was comprised of all original music, written by the accomplished and maturing singer-songwriter. The album itself debuted at #11 on the Canadian iTunes Top 200 RnB/Soul chart.
The success of ‘My Heart Away’ led to the interest and attention of one of House music’s hardest working artists from Sweden, StoneBridge, the Grammy award-nominated artist, Producer, and DJ. One particular song from Avery’s album, ‘Pieces’, captured his imagination and ‘Pieces – The Remixes’, released in January 2020, with its already infectious melody and catchy hook, played in dance clubs and on dance radio all around the world. The song climbed for 9 weeks on the Billboard Dance Club Song Chart hitting the #30 spot, widening the appeal of this independent Canadian artist.
Beyond acquiring media attention, Avery’s music consistently receives glowing reviews and continued airplay across Canada, and into the United States, affording her opportunities to perform her music across North America. From New York to Newport to Toronto and beyond, including venues and renowned music festivals, Avery continues to wow audiences with her fresh style and powerful vocal performances.
Avery continues to compose new music, challenging herself to appeal to multiple genres and audiences, and constantly performing and improving her craft. She also produces a bi-weekly live streaming variety show, and co-hosts a syndicated weekly radio show, talking about and playing music she loves from an era that still influences so many artists today, Soul/RnB, Blues and Jazz.
While constantly performing, and with new music always in production, Avery is poised to be the breakout artist she is destined to become!
