Cameron Avery's career milestones
Avery moved around the Perth area of Australia as a child, living in various locations with his parents and his grandmother. A keen sportsman as a boy, Avery took up the guitar at the age of 16 and never looked back. Soon after learning a few chords, he began experimenting with his own compositions, usually blues-influenced. Avery has gone on record as saying that his teenage musical heroes were musicians such as Son House, the legendary bluesman, and Skip James. Around this time, the young performer also took up the keyboard, augmenting his musicianship and his ability to arrange.
Avery’s performance career kicked off with an early band named Red Shoes Boy. Soon afterwards, he began playing the drums for Abbe May. Nevertheless, Avery’s songwriting was not getting an outlet and he decided to form his own band; The Growl. Although The Growl was moderately successful, he soon began collaborating with Kevin Parker of Tame Impala, with whom he began to perform. Establishing himself on the music scene in Perth, Avery went on to form Pond, with musicians such as Jay Watson and Joe Ryan, among others. At this time, Avery released a couple of EPs, including Clever Leaver, a 2011 work put out by The Growl. Later, Avery would support the British musician Jake Bugg when he toured Australia in 2014.
Avery contributed to a number of releases with Pond, as well. Their sixth studio album, Man it Feels Like Space Again, was a notable release and was praised by many in the music press. Mixed by Kevin Parker, it came out in January 2015. The following year, Avery began touring in support of the Last Shadow Puppets, probably best known as a supergroup formed by Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys. Having built an audience as a solo performer, Avery decided to put out a release in his own name. Recorded in 2016 and early 2017, his debut solo album was called Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams. Since then, the performer has continued to play as a solo artist, as well as keeping his hand in with his many other musical projects.
