SINGER/SONGWRITER, AVERY, IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON HER DEBUT ALBUM SET TO BE RELEASED LATER THIS YEAR ON UNIVERSAL MOTOWN. HER FIRST SINGLE, LOVE ME OR LET ME GO, HAS HAD OVER 2.3 MILLION PLAYS ON YOUTUBE.
Sixteen year-old singer/songwriter, Avery, stands just 4 feet 11 inches but in the words of well know singer Iyaz, "That’s a big voice in 3 feet", as he noted after the duo sang an impromptu version of hit song, Replay, while backstage at a Justin Bieber concert in Detroit. Speaking of Justin Bieber, Avery was discovered much the same way as he was. Rather than a flood of covers being sung and posted online, it was one very little video that Avery and her friends put together called "Step Brothers" in which the four friends are sitting in a car singing, but clearly Avery stood out among them.
It was that video that struck the eye of Manager / Producer Aton Ben-Horin and soon Avery left her home in Arizona for Orlando to record with Aton's production team, The Agency, and shoot the video for what would become her first studio single titled, Love Me Or Let Me Go. The video was an instant viral hit and currently has over 2.3 million views on YouTube.
From there it was off to Hollywood to meet with Chris Anokute, Senior Vice President A&R for Universal Motown who signed Avery to Universal Motown. (It was Anokute that signed Katy Perry when he was with Capitol Records.)
Avery is currently working on her debut album writing with Lauren Christy from the hit making production team, The Matrix, who penned Complicated and Sk8er Boi for Avril Lavigne.
The ground work has been laid, now Avery is set to make her own footprint in the world of music. Something tells us that with her talent she's well on her way!
