"24-year-old Aviella Winder is one of the most in-demand rising topliners in dance music, a quintessential pop star in the making. Hailing from upstate New York, Aviella began pursuing music over a decade ago. She picked up a guitar at 10 years old, and she hasn’t looked back since. After logging into her father’s YouTube channel, Aviella began uploading acoustic covers, amassing over 5 million views across her videos.
With Aviella’s work growing more fervent, her family left everything behind. Fully believing in Aviella’s talent and drive, her parents quit their jobs and relocated across the country, so that Aviella could fully pursue her Hollywood dreams. From penning Slushii’s “Never Let You Go (feat. Sophia Reyes),” to her feature on “Inspiration” with Unknown Brain spanning over 32 Million plays across Spotify & YouTube, Aviella now boasts a whopping 54 collaborations and features with industry-leading artists including QUIX, ARMNHMR, Slushii, Barclay Crenshaw (Claude Von Stroke) and Vincent. The rising star has performed at an impressive array of legendary venues such as Madison Square Garden, The Roxy, The Shrine, Academy LA, Avalon Hollywood, and Exchange LA.
Since signing to Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records in 2020, Aviella has honed her craft through compelling songwriting that resonates with the masses. Exemplified on her 2021 Downtown Love EP, Aviella captures raw emotion performed through a collection of earworm songs which deal with relationships and the value of love. One of the EP’s most personal tracks “tell me what you’re thinking,” connected with audiences across North America, earning Aviella her first #1 Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart and #1 US Dance Radio Mediabase single.
Aviella’s passionate work ethic delves beyond her music. From as early as age 8, Aviella actively used her voice to improve and give back to her surrounding communities. The young talent often volunteered at her local senior home, performing oldies (such as “Mr. Postman'') to boost spirits and feel connected to her late great Grandmother. She also put on shows to raise money for organizations such as Soldier’s Angels, which included performances at airport terminals for returning US military personnel who had no one to greet them. When she moved to Orange County, the then 15-year-old Aviella worked with the local police department to start the first chapter of Do the Right Thing in California. Aviella is a firm believer of encouraging good acts within the community, so much so that her hometown, Rochester, NY commemorates her for her acts of kindness and charity every June 30 (Aviella Winder Day).
Outside of music and philanthropy, Aviella loves fashion, social media, and especially her Sphynx cat Maraca, often coordinating matching outfits for the duo."
