Avara's angelic vocals and lush, bass-heavy production create an atmospheric experience for her listeners. As an Indian-American R&B/soul artist and producer from Atlanta, now living in Los Angeles, she integrates her Indian classical vocal training and Western/choral music background with her unique R&B-inspired production style. Featured by Rolling Stone India, Ones to Watch, and Sofar Sounds, her unique production and songwriting style capture her perspective of the world through sonic expression, embracing her identity as a brown woman and topics on meditation, mental health, and love/loss.

Having released 7 singles in 2023, amassing thousands of followers across social media for her production and songwriting abilities, and performing live shows across Austin, TX, Avara looks forward to releasing her first EP, “Been Some Time”, at the end of March 2024.
