Ma Petite is the solo project of Melbourne born musician, Indiana Avent. After spending almost a decade in the music industry playing violin for artists such as Bon Iver, Soko, Dan Mangan, and Gotye, among others, Avent decided to put her own originals out into the world. Painting a tale of her dreams, experiences and aspirations, the little stories within the songs are brought to life with charmingly honest songwriting. Supported by a collective of the West Coast's finest musicians, they create a whimsical tapestry for Avent's stories to be told.
Avent moved to Canada in early 2011 to record her debut album 'The road that led me to Fall', an album written during her time spent in Canada in 2010. The concept was to create a cross collaboration project, encompassing Avent’s own unique Australian style, while capturing the essence of the Canadian independent folk/singer songwriter scene, which along with the vast natural beauty of Canada, influenced and inspired many of the songs on the album.
This vision came to life with the help of Vancouver based Producer Paul Beochler and a plethora of talented local musicians, including Aidan Knight, Kenton Loewen (Dan Mangan, Gord Gradina), Jordan Klassen, and Matt Kelly (Yukon Blond, Ali Milner, Portage and Main, Treelines).
The first single, 'Man About Moon' from Ma Petite's debut album will be released in September 2012, supported by a headline single release show at The Media Club, Vancouver on Friday 28th of September. Followed by the Australian release on December 16th at Northcote Social Club, Melbourne. The road that led me to Fall will find your ears in Spring 2013.
