AVIS “Simply Amazing!”
Los Angeles, California - From the beginning to the end of the Cd Avis “Simply Amazing!” confirms that you will be completely satisfied with Avis’ R&B/Pop production and vocal performance.
October 2011 - As a young child belting out “Go Tell It on the Mountains”, in the Garfield Elementary School Auditorium, (much like the little girl in Tina Turner’s movie “What’s Love Got to do With It”,) Avis Harrell has been singing practically every since she could speak. Her classmates were so excited by the power of her voice and the confidence that trilled on with each note, that she caused and unplanned uproar of applauds in the very place where youth were being taught to be conservative and disciplined. Only to be shuffled off to the Principals office to visit Mrs. Alacohn and get reprimanded for bringing a soulful, gospel, and Baptist sound to what was supposed to be songs sung in the vain of “The Sound of Music.” But unbeknownst to the Principal and Staff at Garfield Elementary, a young star was being born. The screams and applauds from Avis’s classmates further confirmed that she had “that something” or that “it factor” to move masses of people with her vocal presentations. And from that day forward, Avis continues to sing, write, perform, produce, record and to re-invent and challenge herself to create better music than any of her previous albums.
This brings us to today’s newest release Avis “Simply Amazing!” You can tell from the first song on this Cd, “Baller & Player”, that Avis writes true to life stories that have a message. Your ears will automatically perk up to listen to the story unfold once you’ve heard the elaborate introduction and music played by Producer Michael Williams. As the song develops and takes you from place to place, giving you a scenario of the life style a Baller actually lives, you meet at least 2 other characters who help paint the scene. It’s wonderful when a writer makes a point so clear that you really don’t need a music video to see what it is he or she is trying to convey. That is the kind of writer she is. And to add to that, her vocals and all the background harmonies give the song the exact support it needs to help you sing along and remember her melodies. No reality show allows an artist to display this kind of talent that Avis breaths into a music production that she has been blessed to create and share with us. From The Fawns to “Self Contained” to her “Tribute to Our Troops” to “A Song for Haiti”, Avis never detours from her goal and that is to bring you true original music.
Taking a break from Big Band music in Los Angeles and performances with The Jimmy McConnell Orchestra, Avis decided to enforce her “Queen of Versatility” powers to embrace her R&B side once again. This Cd “Simply Amazing”, written by Avis is a clear journey of the love she posses in her heart, her happiness, and a message of world peace. Every element is there, from getting people to get up and dance together, how deeply she loves, her innocence to being shown how to love perfectly. Along with the last song which is one of the highlights that I spoke about earlier,… that “it factor” or as the reality show titles exceptional artist like her, one with the “X-Factor”. Because, she not only wrote, produced and played “My Love Feels Like That” but she opened the door to a very passionate, sensual intimate side of herself. The emotion behind each piece of work is so intense that, again she left no stone unturned. Her music is her artistry and in my opinion the Cd Avis “Simply Amazing!” is a Cd that you would want to own and allow yourself to feel renewed from ten really well written, well sung songs that it will become an American staple. So please give yourself a treat and order a copy today. Trust me….you’ll be “Simply Amazed!”
