Avenoir is a minimalist duo that explores the constant flux of gender roles and relations in the modern era. Aesthetically, they perform exclusively in low-light silhouette to highlight their goal of removing ego from this important conversation. Musically, Victoria’s east coast folk and country roots (originally from Newfoundland) come together with James’ R&B and soul background (originally Toronto) to create a dynamic, one-of-a-kind fusion.

Avenoir is a new project, but Victoria and James have a long history of artistic collaboration. Along with their work together on other musical projects, they are both classically trained theatre actors. This union makes for a unique, cathartic listening experience. Avenoir is currently working towards recording their debut EP.
