Bio

Singer-songwriter Avana Carbonell, a native of New Jersey, began training in ballet, tap and modern dance as a toddler. Later, as a pupil of classical piano, she became strongly influenced by some of the first contemporary sounds she heard: Ann Wilson of Heart, Mahalia Jackson, Donnie Hathaway, Teena Marie, Peggy Lee, Nina Simone, Boy George and Jim Morrison. After performing Mariah Carey’s ‘Vision of Love’ at a school talent show, Avana immediately earned the name “the little girl with the huge voice”, and honed her passion from that point onward. She spent summers and Saturdays participating in geek camp and classes, while remaining an avid member of church, school, county and regional choirs, theater, forensics and literary magazine. She enjoyed a quick fling with the guitar before enrolling in the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. After earning her degree in music business management and voice, Avana relocated to New Jersey and worked as a marketing intern at Zomba-Jive Records in New York City while recording and performing in and around the area. Avana Carbonell independently writes, arranges and produces all of her material. Her music is best described as bold, electric, honest, confrontational, sensuous, soulful, and is reminiscent of Chaka Khan, Donna Summer and Prince.
