Avery Sunshine
Avery Sunshine
Avery*Sunshine is without a doubt one of the most dynamic voices on the
creative music scene, known for her invigorating and combustible live
performances, compelling and revealingly honest song writing and impeccable
instrument. The earthy and charming singer who has lent her vocals to the
silver screen and collaborated with the likes of Roy Ayers, Will Downing,
and Musiq Soulchild, has also lent her choral directing and choirs to a few
of the live performances from Michael Buble, David Foster, Anthony Hamilton,
and Jennifer Holiday. In 2005 she lent her voice to the soundtrack for
Paramount Pictures┬╣ The Fighting Temptations, and in 2005 she was hired as
lead keyboardist for Tyler Perry┬╣s stage play Meet the Browns. In 2007, she
was sought out by Grammy- and Tony Award-winning vocal powerhouse Jennifer
Holliday to be choral director for the theatrical production of Dreamgirls
during the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta. Avery*Sunshine has
also had the distinction of performing at the Democratic National Convention
in Denver, CO and four private events during the 2009 Inauguration of
President Barack Obama. As home in a variety of musical contexts, she has
also sung background for gospel icon Yolanda Adams.
The SunRoom is Avery*Sunshine's 2nd full length. It's one of those albums
that transports you both musically and emotionally. From organic soulful
in-the-pocket grooves, sublime ballads and exuberant up-tempo numbers, the
vocals shine throughout, the production is tight and the songwriting is
authentic and thought provoking. All of the material on the CD was
co-written by Avery*Sunshine and Dana "BigDane" Johnson with the exception
for the gospel track "Safe In His Arms." The musical roots of
Avery*Sunshine run deep as collectively their creative core has been
inspired by such diverse iconic figures as Nina Simone, Gladys Knight, The
Doobie Brothers, Curtis Blow, B.B. King and John Coltrane to Parliament &
Funkadelic, The Clark Sisters, Madonna, Miles Davis, Earth, Wind & Fire and
James Brown.
With the release of The SunRoom, it is obvious that Avery*Sunshine and Dana
"BigDane" Johnson are no ordinary stars and that their magnetic field of
positivity has a gravitational pull that is destined to resonate with the
masses. "Our mission is simple: to inspire and encourage people to pursue
whatever their life calling is and to operate at the highest level of
themselves through that calling - ultimately to #SHINE".
