Avery Raquel – ‘My Heart Away’ (GKM): A jazz ingenue whose career path is eerily similar to Nikki Yanofsky’s own, the Hamilton teen has already secured a name for herself with mentors including David Clayton-Thomas (who lent his recognizable pipes for her second album) and a cheque-book of festival talent buyers who have been eager to promote her and have her back for return engagements.
Youthful as she is, her emotive style borders recognizable torch singers and a barstool of lounge crooners who once romanced audiences with a parcel of lipstick songs in watering holes made famous by the Rat Pack and Raymond Chandler.
Producer and manager Greg Kavanagh, who worked with her on her second album, has great expectations for Raquel.
“She has an unbelievable natural phrasing, not unlike singers from the past, where she lays things back and interprets a melody… and can comfortably talk to veteran musicians as an equal.”
“My Heart Away” is taken from an upcoming nine-song album that she hopes to deliver later this year.
