Neo Soul / R&B


Avant, best known for hits such as “Separated”, “My First Love” and “Read Your Mind” likens himself to a modern day soul singer like Luther Vandross, but cites R. Kelly as his main influence. A graduate of the Cleveland School of the Arts, he majored in theater, but always wanted to pursue a career in music. MCA Records released his first album My Thoughts in 2000. The single “Separated” topped the Billboard R&B charts and the video received massive play on BET and The Box.

Recorded in Chicago, the album features a cover of Rene & Angela’s 1983 R&B classic “My First Love”. This album was followed up by “Ecstasy” in 2002 and Avant’s cameo appearance in the 2004 film Barber Shop 2.

His latest album “The Letter” was released in 2010 on his new label Verve Forecast. Avant describes the album as “a letter from me to my fans, to tell them what’s going on in my life, what’s going through my head, and my struggles as a man.”

“Staying true to the traditional elements of R&B, Avant has underpinned his repertoire with songs that speak to the universal human experience. It is no wonder, then, how he racked up a long string of timeless hits that stretch back to My Thoughts, his 2000 debut.” – Clayton Perry
