Hamilton native, and recording artist Avery Raquel, started in the entertainment industry when she was just 7 years old, having landed a role in the television pilot episode of “Falling Skies”, executive produced by Steven Spielberg. Since then Avery has appeared in commercials, radio ads, and even for a Disney animated television series, lending her voice to one of the lead characters. That experience led to 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 recently entered into an exciting new chapter in her developing success story, as a songwriter.
…Now, one year later, Avery is putting finishing touches on her 3rd solo project, “My Heart Away”. Comprised of all original music, one can discern that Avery has matured into a prolific songwriter, with catchy melodies, strong lyrics and a real sense of musicality, not often seen from someone so young.
