Call My Name

Album: The SunRoom (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This love song was penned by Avery Sunshine with her musical partner, guitarist/producer Dana Johnson. Released as a single, it became the first #1 for the songstress on Billboard's Adult R&B Songs chart. "There is something magical and spiritual that happens when my partner Dana [Johnson] and I work together," said Sunshine. "This song was derived from a very honest space. I believe that when you work from a place of truth, the music finds a way to connect. Most of our career, we have been told to be something other than who we are. This #1 shows us that trusting your own voice is the answer."
