To get you prepped for the onslaught of artistic awesomeness that’s coming your way in April, we’re running a series highlighting our amazing performers. Because you are busy and important, we’ll keep it short. 100 words or less, (almost) everything you need to know.

Name: CR Avery
Hails from: Vancouver, British Columbia
Best loved for: outlaw hip hop harmonica, intense beatbox poetic epics, heart pounding encores
CV: recorded fifteen albums, writer and director of six hip hop operas, countless tours, and some pretty incredible reviews
Quotable moment: “It’s the only thing in the world that’s important. It’s not a publicist or getting a good quote in some stupid famous publication, it’s about writing the fucking song that’s going to actually be in this world.”
