Rockhampton singer Avalon to learn big from her Mistakes

WITH her sweet soothing vocals, telling of songs about love and life from her own perspective, Rockhampton's Avalon Hicks doesn't hide or deny her mistakes.

That's the name of her debut album which she recorded during the last 14 weeks of her last semester in 2012 while studying a Bachelor of Environmental Management, and is about to start her Masters in the field this year.

A lot to accomplish at the age of just 20, at both very different ends of the spectrum when it comes to career choices, but Avalon seemed to be managing it okay when Beat had a chat with the young singer-songwriter this week.

"It was so much fun," Avalon said about the whole album-making experience.

"I just loved recording it, writing it and everything else that's involved with the process; I'd love to do it for the rest of my life."

Writing all the songs on her 13-track record aside from three covers, the folky pop singer said although she'd never performed on stage before, singing had been a big part of her life from a young age.

 

"I've been singing my whole life but it wasn't until my friend at uni said they knew someone at a studio at the Gold Coast that I went for an interview there and they said they'd like to work with me," she said.

"I definitely want to keep doing it, I plan to do some gigs around Rocky and eventually get back into the studio."

Avalon's Mistakes is for sale now. See her website www.avalonmusic.com.au for more info.
