Cameron Avery Shared Debut Album 'Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams'

Grounded in soulful songwriting, multi-instrumental virtuosity, and Avery's heart wrenching, crooning Baritone, the record challenges Avery to carry the weight of a leading man for the very first time. The result is a record that is beautiful, vulnerable, and powerful.

Underneath its orchestral arrangements and Avery's gravely vocal, Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams is an album about relationships. As Noisey writes, "At once a deeply personal and universally relatable, at it's core, this record is perfect for anyone struggling at the end of a meaningful relationship, groping through late nights and warm bodies to the next person who makes you really feel."

The record comes out as the Perth-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has just begin to tour his own project for the very first time, using his beautiful low voice 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.
