Outlaw Hip-Hop Harmonica Player, Beatbox Poet, Punk Piano Player, String Quartet Raconteur, Rock & Roll Matador, Playwright...

Biography (English) :
Outlaw Hip-Hop Harmonica Player, Beatbox Poet, Punk Piano Player, String Quartet Raconteur, Rock & Roll Matador, Playwright

Whether performing to thousands at the Royal Albert Hall or the lucky few who made it inside the packed past capacity speakeasy, C.R. Avery is a unique, raw and dynamic performer. His genius lies in many genres - blues, hip-hop, spoken word and rock & roll. He is a one-man band, but one for this generation; with the rare ability to sing poetic verse while beatboxing simultaneously while pounding the piano and adding harmonica like a plot twist. A multi-talented front man for his Legal Tender String Quartet; a crazed lead singer/harp player for his rock & roll band The Special Interest Group; a lyrical dynamo & the musical backbone of the spoken word trio Tons of Fun University.

From musical beginnings in his late teens, C.R. Avery has recorded over fifteen albums as well as writing & directing six hip-hop operas, which were mounted and performed from New York's Bowery to L.A.'s South Central.  He has toured throughout Canada (including almost every major folk festival) the USA and Europe (headlining or opening for Billy Bragg, Buck 65, and Sage Francis) and garnered the attention of music peers the likes of Tom Waits ("...he's blowin' my mind"); blues harp trail blazer Charlie Musselwhite ("...no one plays harmonica like him… no one…"); and folk legend Utah Phillips ("...raw talent").

His incredible live performances have been described as Bob Dylan in the body of Iggy Pop; colliding with Little Walter, the Beastie Boys and Allen Ginsberg.  Every show is all or nothing and his fearless approach to all genres of music both on stage and in the studio proves the longevity of this talented, astonishing creator has so much more to come.

Biography (French) :
Bandit hip-hop joueur dʼharmonica, Poète beatbox, Joueur de piano punk, Conteur de quatuor à cordes, Matador du Rockʼnʼroll, Dramaturge

Quʼil joue devant des centaines de personnes au Royal Albert Hall ou pour une poignée de chanceux qui auront réussi à se glisser dans un bar clandestin plein à craquer, C. R. Avery est un artiste à lʼétat brut, unique en son genre et plein dʼénergie. Il doit sa virtuosité à plusieurs styles - blues, hip-hop, slam et rockʼnʼroll. Formant un groupe à lui tout seul, le seul de sa génération, il a la capacité rare de chanter de la poésie tout en faisant du beatbox, de jouer énergiquement du piano et dʼajouter de lʼharmonica au dernier moment.

Il est aussi le leader aux talents multiples du Legal Tender String Quartet ; chanteur et joueur de guimbarde passionné à la tête de son groupe de rockʼnʼroll The Boom Chasers, et enfin parolier hors pair et colonne vertébrale musicale du trio de slam Tons of Fun University.

Depuis ses débuts dans la musique vers la fin de son adolescence, C. R. Avery a enregistré plus de quinze albums et écrit ainsi que mis en scène six opéras hip-hop, qui ont été montés et joués des cabarets de Bowery à New York jusquʼaux bars de Los Angeles South Central. Après une tournée au Canada (incluant presque tous les principaux festivals folk), aux États-Unis et en Europe (faisant lui-même les gros titres ou en ouverture de Billy Bragg, Buck 65 et Sage Francis), il a attiré lʼattention de ses pairs tels que Tom Waits («... il mʼéblouit"), Charlie Musselwhite («... personne ne joue de lʼharmonica comme lui... personne") et la légende folk Utah Phillips («... du talent brut").

Lors de ses performances live incroyables, il a été décrit comme Bob Dylan dans le corps de Iggy pop, avec quelque chose de Little Water, des Beastie Boys et dʼAllen Ginsberg. Il donne tout à chaque concert, et sa façon audacieuse dʼappréhender tous les genres de musique, à la fois sur scène et en studio, prouve que cet artiste incroyablement doué nous promet une belle et longue carrière.
