Once upon a time a very talented, fiery princess left her native urban Toronto home to do battle with the forces of evil to save the forests of British Columbia.
Then, she did it again.
Environmental activism is only a part of who Avery is. Artistic expression are also important ingredients in the ever-evolving recipe that is Avery.
"Exploration & collaboration are the foundations of my musical journey.... Especially through songwriting, singing & dance, I continue to find myself and in turn better understand others."
- Avery Florence
Avery's powerful, yet smoky, sultry voice is the obvious center-piece to her music but know that she is also adept at several instruments.
Avery's musical tastes are eclectic. She includes in her list of influences Nelly Furtado, Lana Del Rey, Bonnie Raitt, Dolly Parton, Bon Iver, Billie Eilish, Lauryn Hill, Sinéad O'Connor, and Charlotte Day Wilson.
Her own music crosses genre lines too. Her Flõstate collaboration musical partner MKSTN is described as fantasy R&B. Her solo work as Soft-Soul. We find those descriptions lacking; that one is really must better served by listening to each song as a gem on it's own and not trying to pigeon-hole her musical style. Here are some links to a few of her songs to give you a sense of what we mean.
Wake Up! - (2022 - Avery's most recent release)
Breaking Free (2020)
Dear Friend (2018)
Here's a couple of Fun-Facts about Avery: she was a contestant on season 2 (2019) of CTV's 'The Launch' and had a song during season 1 of Kim's Convenience.
