About Avril Lavigne

It seems that the destiny of Avril Lavigne was written long ago in her home country of Canada. She was born in 1984, and by the time she was 15, she’d shared the stage with another Canadian legend in Shania Twain. At just 16 Avril Lavigne was enjoying a million-dollar career as a songwriter and singer. Her success was swift and huge.

Lavigne’s initial recordings have been assigned to the punk genre (See a list of Emo music ideas). These songs feature a grunge style of music combined with edgy lyrics. As she has gotten older her music tends to appeal to pop fans.

Only two female musical artists from Canada have sold more records than Avril Lavigne. Those artists are Shania Twain and Celine Dion.

From the success of “Complicated” to a resurgence with “Head Above Water” and other songs, Avril Lavigne has forever etched her name into music history. She has gone beyond the crush of every skateboarder to an elegant songstress.
