When I first picked up RU with Me I was fairly reluctant because Paul Avion is not only an artist that I was almost completely unfamiliar with, but also composed music in a genre that I’ve never listened to. However, upon further research and listening, it came to my attention how fascinating a character and musician Avion is. By all intents and purposes, Avion follows the beat of his own drum. Having moved to Los Angeles from his hometown of New Orleans in 2005, he then moved to Paris where he took up a job as a dishwasher in order to immerse himself in French culture. This However, seems relatively pedestrian compared to his decision to live over the past year in one of the poorest slums in Kenya where he lived and worked at a school for disabled children. While living there he filmed part of his experiences and posted them on his website. This fascinating story should not in any way overshadow the comparatively interesting nature of his music.
