Avery Sunshine – The SunRoom
3.5 out of 4 stars
Avery Sunshine is an indie artist that seemingly came from nowhere, hitting the national scene with her self-titled debut album. Her Gospel-anchored vocals but soulful stirrings and reflective pen brought her talent to the forefront quickly, and songs such as “All In My Head” and “Blessin’ Me” were both exercises in music that moved the soul and body, in my opinion. Her new album The SunRoom is a further extension and a deeper dive into the rabbit hole that is Ms. AverySunshine.
There’s no lack of emotion or musicality on this new record — you are immediately thrown into the deep end. From the outset we’re treated to an old school tinged jam called “Won’t You Try” that Al Green himself could sanctify and lay waste to. The album immediately proceeds to the single “Call My Name”, in which AverySunshine gives you full voice and range, and from then on you’re hooked.
