About avery

Steeped in vintage sensibilities and powerful emotion, paired with her dreamy, delicate vocals reminiscent of the crooners of eras past, Avery Dakin fuses old and new in her dynamic, thoughtfully crafted music. 

Avery's soft-hearted, soulful accounts of life’s most intimate moments are youthful and refreshing, sometimes playful and cheeky, while still reflecting her old soul. Cushioned within lush, shimmering harmonies and longing melodies, bathing in a soft sweetness, her sultry yet earnest music implores you to sway along to the sounds of introspection, yearning, and a woman finding her voice in spite, and because of it all.

A single review in UK publication Click Roll Boom calls Avery’s vocals “enchanting with an intoxicating purity and innocence”

This vulnerability and care has earned Avery bronze in The Coast's 2021 Best Of Halifax Awards for Best New Artist, a feature about her 2021 single Self Preservation in Halifax Presents, and the opening slot for Caribou Run at the Lighthouse Arts Centre for Halifax Jazz Fest 2021. 

Now you can stream Avery's brand new debut album, Bloom, a soothing, sultry, and vulnerable meditation on growth and coming of age.

Touching on themes of mental wellness, growing up, and freeing oneself from the past in search of a happier and healthier life, Bloom uplifts the spirit with Avery's sweet, pure vocals, dreamy harmonic variation, and a sun-kissed warmth in its tone and delivery.

"Bloom" album artwork, released July 2023

'Bloom' is a stunning love letter to the warmer days featuring beautiful dreamy, ethereal tones that share tenderness and warmth. It's like a re-emergence after the long cold winter days with a renewed energy and passion for life. Exquisitely presented, 'Bloom' has a wonderful swing vibe with elements of R'n'B and sections that could be likened to acidity of trip-hop. It's an understated sound that is complex in its delivery, merging different genres to create something that is relaxing and uplifting but also dynamic and creative. Avery's vocals are enchanting with an intoxicating purity and innocence.” - Amy, Click Roll Boom contributor
