This singer songwriter is not short on talent, classed as dark pop her style is very unique from the usual pop music of today. Sounding similar to lady GAGA but more highly tuned in the respect that her lyrics mean something, each song has its own story to tell, which is not surprising as she is also a talented poet. Vocally fantastic, Lyrically outstanding, and the music has that crisp clear pop edge to it.
Avion Blackstone is a bright light in the world of dark pop. Born to a conservative family, Avion grew up with first hand experience of gender, age, and religious inequality. A poet and pianist, she began writing music at the tender age of 3. Her style is an original pairing of big pop sound with layers of meaningful lyrics. Obsessed with symbolism, Avion writes music as metaphors for life, gender and sex issues, and world events.
Avion has been gaining fans globally by interacting directly with them on Twitter. At times escaping the studio to recharge her creative battery through engaging with her darlings or Aviants.
You can hear her music being played on Streetseekers radio, 98.2 The Beat, Beatsta, Nine Oh, Rock Bandom Radio and Blockz Radio. Her first radio interview on MJWJ’s ‘To Be Honest’ garnered high praise from the hosts for her quality music. You can watch for her two upcoming magazine spreads in The Underground Fix in November and in Blockz Mayhem’s inaugural issue this fall.
Although Avion would not describe her music as unique, but rather a representation of herself as an artist, industry people are comparing her to unique sound of Lady Gaga. Her songs are refreshing and deep with meaning while the quality of her music is equivalent to that of top tier stars. She credits her perfectionism…her fans credit her talent.
She is currently promoting her single ‘Black Ice’ from her ‘Anything For Diamonds’ project and planning a series of shows. She resides in Austin TX with her kitten Egypt. You can stay updated on Avion’s music and events by following her on twitter at @AvionBlackstone
