Singer-Songwriter Avery Marshall grew up in Oklahoma, listening to country, folk, hip-hop, and every musical genre under the sun. This wide range of musical styles influences his own. Learning music from friends and his time in marching band, Avery believes that music is the connecting tissue between humanity and the rest of nature.
