Character Biography

When Avery first arrived in Nashville, he was a passionate and headstrong alt-country music writer who was paying his dues grinding out local gigs and hustling his demos. A bad record contract failed to provide him with a fast-track to fame but Avery’s finally finding success as a music producer.

After helping Juliette Barnes produce a country music hit, Avery’s been able to book the enviable gig of producing rising country sensation Sadie Stone’s latest album. His band ZAG has also been generating interest from music industry bigwigs.

It’s also an exciting time in his personal life, with Avery having recently married Juliette Barnes, with whom he’s expecting his first child!
