Ones to Watch in 2011: Avery
In January of 2011, Avery was named 'The Next Big Thing' by Entertainment Tonight and seemingly for good reason. Passionate about music at a young age, Avery played Gabriella in a local production of High School Musical as well as performing in her hometown choir. Before signing with Universal, Avery was discovered on YouTube and flew out to Orlando FL where she signed with Plush Records, recording her first single, "Love Me Or Let Me Go." The video was shot and uploaded onto her YouTube account in May of last year, amassing over 1 million views in just three months time. AMAZING! "Love Me Or Let Me Go" is another Avril-worthy pop-punk jam, complete with a catchy chorus and fiery attitude. The video follows Avery as she takes a box filled with memories of an ex boyfriend and ultimately dumps it off the roof of a building. The video is interspersed with clips of Avery rockin' out to the song in a club, performing with a band and an amped up crowd of teenagers.
Currently at work on her debut album due out later this year, her new single "Go Screw Yourself (GSY)" was released May 28th on Plush/Universal. Download the single on U.S. iTunes HERE and watch the lyric video below.
