Singer Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, and member of Australian band Tame Impala will release his debut solo album ‘Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams’ on March 10th.

“I always had a piano growing up and always wanted a grand,” Perth-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cameron Avery told us when we asked him about his favorite piece of gear. “I bought it off a friend of mine. It’s a 71′ Kawai KG-5 Conservatorium Grand piano. It’s so played and has such a resonant bottom end. It’s the last year they made them with ivory I’m pretty sure.”
“It’s just fun having such a beautiful instrument to write on. You don’t have to turn it on or plug anything in, just flop outa bed and play it. It’s literally the only piece of furniture I have other than my bed in my loft. It’s definitely opened up a whole different side of my writing, I can sit at it for hours. My neighbors don’t love it though.” Pretty sure we wouldn’t mind it if Avery was our neighbor.

There may be a touch of familiarity in Avery’s music, as he is the longtime drummer of Pond and touring bassist for Tame Impala . In one of his latest videos, “A Day in the Life” (above), we see him recording drums in the studio and talking about his spot in Tame Impala. “Everyone knows their place. I think that’s important in a good band…that everyone knows their role.”
We’re slowly learning that Avery is much more than a bassist and drummer, but also a singer/songwriter and overall very versatile artist. His debut solo record Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams, is out March 10th via Anti- Records.
