A former member of Australian psych-rock band Pond and the touring bassist for Tame Impala, Cameron Avery's solo career went in a notably different musical direction.
Inspired by the timeless romance of mid-20th century singers like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sarah Vaughan, and Etta James, Avery crafted witty, lushly arranged songs about falling in and out of love. Originally from Western Australia, Avery was the lead singer of the Growls and played drums for Abbe May before becoming Pond's drummer. He joined Tame Impala in 2013, all the while working on his own music. When Tame Impala took a break after the release of Currents, Avery recorded his debut album in Los Angeles. The results were Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams, which Anti- released in March 2017. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
