Biography

Funk with grit, soul with heart and pop with passion

Cousin Avi are as far from ‘vanilla’ as you can get. With 2 albums and multiple self-released EPs under their belts and eight years of independent touring across the UK, Europe and South America behind them, (including Brixton, Cafe De Paris, Jazz Cafe & Brownstock, sharing the bill with acts such as, Amy Winehouse, Basement Jaxx, Example & Katy B) the Avi train doesn’t look as though it’ll be resting anytime soon. 

2017 has seen the release of Cousin Avi's first record in 2 years, 'Take It Away', which saw the band raise all of the production funds purely by crowd funding, using Pledge Music - eventually hitting 148% of their target before a sell out home town release show.

A week of BBC airplay on BBC Georgey Tonight as ‘ BBC Introducing artist of the week' followed, along with festival performances, including sharing the bill with Jools Holland.
