Indie88 Video Premiere: C.R. Avery “Insufficient Funds of Love”

Veteran singer-songwriter explores southern story-song traditions of blues and country

Canadian poet, musician, and singer-songwriter C.R. Avery is back with a new effort of his ‘show don’t tell’ style of storytelling. “Insufficient Funds of Love” is the first single from Avery’s new record All the Angels Didn’t Scare Me.

Indie88 is pleased to premiere the video for “Insufficient Funds of Love”. The video comes courtesy of cmyk Productions and was directed by Josh Richardson and Wes Richardson. The song, like the album, sees Avery return to his small-town Ontario storytelling roots of painting people as they really are.


More on the single via official release:

“The painstakingly detailed collection of three vignettes features the individual members of a broken family living in physical and emotional limbo. [Producer] Ben Mink creates a cinematic score for C.R.’s sombre theatre of the mind, employing ominous bass and strings to give the verses an almost murder-ballad-like quality – before the song explodes into walls of fuzzy guitars and choruses.”

See C.R. Avery live in Toronto at Lula Lounge on Monday, November 28.
