AboutAvril Lavigne, born on September 27th, 1984, spent the majority of her life growing up in the small town of Napanee, Ontario, Canada. Avril started off singing country songs for amateur producers in her home town.

At the age of 15, Avril won the chance to sing with award winning singer, Shania Twain, in front of 20,000 people. Shortly after Avril realised she wanted to follow her passion for music, and dropped out of school to move to New York. There she sang for L.A. Reid once word got around that a small town girl from Canada had moved to the city in search of a music career. Once Avril demonstrated her then raw musical skills and vocals, she was instantly signed.

Avril was then put into the studio to start recording a country record, in which she was given songs to sing. Avril protested and requested that her contract be extended to include that she at least co-write all songs on her records. She was granted her wish. She then moved to L.A. to record a record she had planned, a record inspired by her idols Alanis Morrisette and band Green Day. She first worked with Cliff Magness where they both bonded on the opinion that the music industry was a corrupt place only for packaged pop artists. In protest they both came together and wrote the song Unwanted. Once RCA heard this song they requested a softer sound, and a compromise was made in the shape of the Matrix. Avril agree to work with 3 talented musicians that were building a reputation in the industry as great song-writers. Together they wrote 'Complicated', set to be her debut single. Once 'Complicated' was written, the path for Avril's debut record was set in stone and the rest of the record came about easily with the lyrics and melodies flowing from all parties.

Let Go was released in June 2002, and went to #1 on the U.S. Billboard top 200, and her 3 debut singles followed the success and went to #1 on the U.S. Billboard Pop 100. Complicated, Sk8er Boi, and I'm With You established Avril as one of the biggest recording artists of all time, and she was the only female artist at the time to get 3 consecutive #1's from a debut record. "Let Go" went on to sell 17 million records, making it the 8th best selling record of the 00's.

Avril later toured the record on her 'Try to Shut Me Up' tour. She toured for a year, and once she retured she immediately started to write her 2nd record with artist Chantal Kreviazuk. Avril claimed that the record took less than two weeks to write and she felt inspired by all of the situations she was faced with in prior years leading up to the record. For that reason, she titled the record 'Under My Skin'.

Under My Skin went straight to #1 in most countries around the world, and it's first single, Don't Tell Me. It was a moderate hit, however the 2nd single, My Happy Ending, would end up to be the biggest single from the record, ultimately leading the era into one of the most successful female tours of all time, 'The Bonez Tour' which consisted of over 144 tour dates globally.

Once Avril finished touring 'Under My Skin', she took a 2 year hiatus, following an acting career in which she featured in such films as 'Fast Food Nation', 'Over the Hedge', and 'The Flock'. In the making of her 3rd album, she hired hitmaker Dr. Luke to make the fun record she had dreamed about for nearly 2 years. The writing process included Avril getting drunk and skate boarding in the car park while singing random melodies. 6 months down the line and Avril had her 3rd record 'The Best Damn Thing'.

Once released, The Best Damn Thing became Avril's consecutive #1 record. Although the record sold less than her first two, no one expected such a monster single coming from such a boasting titled record. Though Keep Holding On was initially the debut single and featured in the soundtrack/end credits for Eragon [2006] (movie) that was negatively received, it was the album's second single, Girlfriend which went onto be Avril's biggest hit ever - selling over 7 million digital copies in 2007 alone. Although she experiened huge success, she failed to make impact with the following 3 singles - When You're Gone, Hot and the title track, The Best Damn Thing.

Avril did tour on her successful 'The Best Damn Tour', and has started her own clothing range, 'Abbey Dawn', and has released a fragrance called 'Black Star' and 'Forbidden Rose'.

Her fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby, came out on March 2, 2011, with the first single, What The Hell, released in January. Two more singles were released from the album which were Smile and Wish You Were Here. This was the first album of hers not to peak at the top, ending her No.1 album streak on the Billboard 200 chart - instead debuting at #4 in the US. However internationally, it did better - resulting to becoming her third non-consecutive #1 album in Australia, #2 in Canada and Japan. In support of 'Goodbye Lullaby', Lavigne embarked on the 'Black Star Tour' bringing the record to a close in February 2012. This would be Avril's last record under RCA.

After signing with Epic Records, Avril Lavigne's fifth studio album/self-titled Avril Lavigne released on November 1, 2013, explored more electronic, industrial and punk-rock sounds, straying away from the mellow, acoustic music on her last record (and continuing on with the "rebellious" image Avril had created). She also had featured artists Chad Kroger from Nickelback (who would become Avril's second ex-husband) and Marilyn Manson to be on the record (her first album to do so). 'Avril Lavigne' debuted at #5 with the lowest first-week sales of her career and received fairly positive to mixed reviews with some critics citing some of its tracks sounded 'forced and unnatural' while there was praise for the album's carefree, feel good theme. Here's To Never Growing Up, the first single and the most successful, reached #20 on the Billboard Hot 100. Four more singles were released - Rock N Roll, Let Me Go, Hello Kitty (the song's music video was critically panned by critics as a 'lazy approach' to Japanese culture) and Give You What You Like. 'The Avril Lavigne Tour' was the last tour she embarked on before taking another hiatus. She would then leave Epic due to creative differences.

In 2019, it was revealed that Lavigne was diagnosed and has been battling with Lyme disease which became the inspiration for her sixth album, Head Above Water through BMG that later became Sony Music. The album debuted at #5 on Billboard US Top Album Sales. The title track, Head Above Water voiced an empowering, anthemic, spiritual attitude in relation to Avril's emotional health journey. Other singles such as Tell Me It's Over, Dumb Blonde and I Fell In Love With The Devil were released but failed to make impact.

2022 marked the comeback to Avril's signature punk-rocker vibe with the release of Love Sux and an ode to her first album's release with Let Go [20th Anniversary Edition] [2022] that featured unreleased tracks.
