Growing up to the sounds and stories of James Taylor and Shania Twain, Avalon Kali had country music on her mind. Originally from a farm town in Northern California, Avalon wants to bring country music west. A storyteller, Avalon has been writing music since the age of twelve. While attending Belmont University Avalon participated in co-writes, finding her own life experiences were similar to others. Appreciating music’s ability to act as a universal music, Avalon wanted to honor it in her song “Country Song.” A song about love for country music’s ties to family and tradition.
Recently, Avalon released “Looking Back On You,” after a breakup. Rather than a sad song, “Looking Back On You” reflects memories of the good times together and a relationship that wasn’t meant to be. The music video has a nostalgic feel, with polaroids featured throughout.
In the future, Avalon wants to play venues across the nation and continue to co-write. Listen to Avalon’s music on streaming platforms everywhere and on her website at avalonkali.com.
I am currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles as a marketing major. Upon realizing that I wanted to change the way people perceive country music and to help women have a voice, I began The Women of Country in 2015 promoting new female artists and sharing their stories with the world.
