Cameron Avery Announces North American Tour, SXSW

Perth-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cameron Avery is coming to North America this spring in support of his debut album Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams out via Anti-on March 10th.

The longtime drummer of Pond and touring bassist for Tame Impala will get to tour his own project for the very first time, where he’ll use his dynamic baritone and soaring soul-pop melodies to propel his audiences through the dreamscapes he’ll create with his band. He’ll also be making an appearance at this year’s SXSW in Austin. See all tour dates below.

On Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams, Avery offers an ornate yet gritty sound driven by his soulful wit and sweeping arrangements. His deep, husky voice recalls the dark power and humor of artists like Nick Cave, Scott Walker, and Tindersticks, channeling train-wreck romanticism into timeless music for the modern age.

“I wanted to make something that sounded like the old records I love—Johnny Hartman, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Sarah Vaughan, Etta James—the big band stuff with less metaphorical lyrics,” says Avery of the inspiration for Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams.
