Beatbox poet, harmonica madman, C.R. Avery has lived in Vancouver. He is a unique performer, simultaneously singing, beatboxing, playing harmonica and playing guitar. He performs solo or with his band and has played onstage with Tom Waits, Ani DiFranco, The Be Good Tanyas, and Utah Phillips, among others. A top performer in the slam poetry scene, C.R. is in the poetry super group known as “Tons Of Fun University” (TOFU) with the Mighty Mike McGee and the incomparable Shane Koyczan (The guy who did the opening at the 2010 Winter Olympics).

You can keep up-to-date on C.R. Avery on his website, or keep track of him on Facebook, MySpace, or Twitter.  You can preview his talent on Youtube or buy tracks on iTunes.
