Avery Dakin is an emerging singer-songwriter from Halifax, Nova Scotia who combines thoughtful and honest lyrics with dreamy, soulful vocals and accompaniment.
After obtaining a degree in Music composition from Acadia, Avery quickly felt drawn to songwriting, performing, and collaborating in Halifax. She cut her teeth singing and playing keyboard in various musical projects across Nova Scotia, and is now leading her own band, Avery Dakin and Friends.
Avery is currently teaching private music lessons and basking in the release of her single and debut music video "Self Preservation"! Her first EP "Settle Down" can be found on all platforms.
In July 2021 Avery and the band played a set as part of Halifax Jazz Fest's 2021 Community Series, and a few months later they also snagged third place in The Coast's 2021 Best of Awards for "Best New Artist"!
With Avery's open and earnest presence, and a chill, fun group energy onstage, Avery Dakin and Friends create a groovy, bright, yet mellow sound that pair well with her reflective, smart, sometimes cheeky lyrics.
