The Women. Twelve songs spanning seven years, capturing aspects of McAvoy’s relationships with a number of different women. Lovers, friends, and even her mother.
“G’day, My name’s Jess McAvoy. I am from Perth, Western Australia and I currently live in Toronto! I want to talk to you about my new record, The Women, and how [gestures at the viewer] we’re going to make this record together,” says McAvoy in the video she filmed for the campaign.
The release of 2008’s “As the Sun Falls” expanded McAvoy’s audience internationally, especially through the spin-off video from her Melbourne concert featuring Grammy Award-winning Wally De Backer (aka Gotye) performing a duet with McAvoy on her classic, “The Sailor.”
Upon meeting her funding goal, McAvoy will be booked for rehearsals and recording in mid-July in Toronto, mixing with Kevin Killen in New York in the first week of August, with an anticipated release to backers towards the end of August.
Official public release of the record is slated for early October, 2013.
