Avril Ramona Lavigne was born on September 27, 1984, in Napanee, Ontario, Canada. By the time she was 15, she was already well on her way to becoming a worldwide sensation, a pop-punk forerunner now known for hits like “Girlfriend” and her first single, “Complicated.”
Originally setting out to sing country, Lavigne pivoted with her debut album, Let Go, which came out in 2002. The record introduced the world to the songwriter’s carefree punk-pop persona and went on to become the best-selling Canadian album of the 21st century. She was nominated for eight Grammy Awards and has won four Juno Awards.
