The Five at Five: Bronze Avery
30 Jun 2022
From hidden-gems to places to people-watch, from bookshops to beauty spots – here is some inspiration, celebrating the independents in our local neighbourhoods around the world.
This week’s selection has been curated by Bronze Avery, a recording artist, songwriter, and producer that creates unique, genre-less sounds made for movement. He is also the winner of the first-ever Billboard NXT competition — a first-of-its-kind singing competition designed to discover the next great unsigned artist using TikTok.
If that wasn’t enough, Bronze is also the co-founder of RUXWOOD, a minimalist and modern essentials brand, on a mission to provide tools, products, and education to facilitate growth on one’s sensual journey. RUXWOOD empowers its consumers through their app, BLACKBOOK, which acts as a journal to monitor and reflect on sensual experiences.
“Echo Park is my favourite. It’s about a 5-minute walk from my house and there’s always something interesting going on. I’m sure people are watching me when I’m there, too.”
“My favourite music venue is The Moroccan Lounge. I love how intimate it is and the sound is stellar. It gives you a real opportunity to fall in love with the music.”
“Wi Spa in Koreatown is the perfect cure for a hangover.”
“My favourite city to shop in is actually Los Angeles. The vintage and flea market communities here are truly unmatched.”
