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 Pictures¹ The Fighting Temptations, and in 2005 she was hired as

lead keyboardist for Tyler Perry¹s 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".
