Avry is a singer-songwriter from Toronto in beautiful Canada. He sets the dance floor alight with his hot new R&B effort called ”Close To Me”.

The Vancouver-born singer is in top form here and this is a wonderful song. It’s pure and full of sultry lyrics. You can feel the tension here that is soothed by the sexy style and wordplay.

Avry is also part of a trio named 4.0.4 with fellow producer Memblm and vocalist NS. He rides solo on this one and the new song is full of R&B/Pop fusion that makes your feet move.

Close To Me” is all about wanting to spend time with that special person in your life. You want to be close to them but aren’t putting too much pressure in the moment. Keeping things natural is the way forward here and seeing what happens. You don’t want to lose the free-spirit in your life but would love nothing more than being with them all the time.

This is one of the smoothest song of 2020 that has a great message to it. Avry is in fine voice here on ”Close To Me” as he seductively enters into our world with this tremendous effort.
