Biography

You might not know who AVA is yet, but you will. This songstress is the new R&B/Urban Alternative artist to watch this year! She fuses smooth, melodic yet soulful vocals with live instrumentation accented with quirky electronic production that certainly puts her in a class of her own. With musical influences covering the scope of music from Sade, Prince, Phyllis Hyman and Michael Jackson to Teedra Moses, Beyonce and Aaliyah just to name a few, AVA is a musical force to be reckoned with and just might be the most played artist on your iPod in the very near future.

Minnesota native raised in Texas, AVA moved to New York City after college to pursue her singing career. With just $500 in her pocket and no industry connections, she began to make the rounds amongst the New York artist circuit, singing at artist showcases, R&B legends Nick Ashford & Valerie Simpson’s Sugar Bar and performing at every open mic night that she could get to. Her hard work paid off when she was given the opportunity to tour as a back-up singer with Grammy Award winning Def Jam Recording artist Chrisette Michele along side Musiq Soulchild on the “LuvanMusiq” tour and Raheem Devaughn on the “The Art of Love” tour.

Fast forward to 2011 - AVA has just released her first solo project, ‘OVER THE LEDGE’, and currently spends her days working at a busy fashion firm as a photo shoot producer and dedicates support to a creative executive to earn extra income. By night she is back on the grind, working towards her dream job. She is more than ready to prove to the industry, to her fans and to the world that her gift of song and the art of performance is definitely not a fairytale.
