What: Contemporary Soul/R&B/Jazz
Where: Hamilton, ON
From TV and radio to animation, voice-over work, and a number of professional stage productions across Canada, Avery Raquel’s passion for performing began at a young age. Those many years of experience shine brightly on her latest release, My Heart Away, the artist’s third and markedly mature full-length solo project comprised of all original music. The record finds the dynamic vocalist moving beyond her jazz roots into more of a mainstream R&B/soul sound.
On the live scene, Raquel has performed in notable venues such as New York City’s Birdland Jazz Club and Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall, among others, allowing her the opportunity to share the stage with luminaries including Canadian legend Holly Cole, Matt Dusk, and more.
