Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone
Born and raised in Chester, Pennsylvania, Avery grew up with parents who exposed her to a variety of artists such as The Clark Sisters, Earth Wind & Fire and Aretha Franklin. Nurturing her natural inclination to soulful music, she experienced the first stages of her Gospel roots while participating as a member in the Wilmington/Chester Mass Choir.
The predisposed-manufactured-in-music-history climax to her story one would assume is actually invalid for Ms. Sunshine. That's because at first she wasn't sure her path would take on the artist role, but instead as choir director or the sort.
Since Avery took on her independent artist route, the acclaim followed. Jet Magazine
named her as one of "2011's Independent Artists To Look Out For." Before that, she was very active on the scene, lending her talents for the 2008 Democratic Convention as well as performing at events during President Obama's 2009 Inauguration.
Her self-titled 2010 album release, Avery Sunshine
placed on Itunes R&B/Soul charts and her track "All In My Head
" peaked at #15.
