Ava Lemert: Soulful Saxtress, Singer & Songwriter
A native of Southern California, Ava Lemert was submerged in music from birth having a Mother and two elder sisters who were active musicians in the household to influence her. So, it was no surprise that by age 7, Ava was producing her own radio programs including her own DJ personna Kay Kay Dee Jay on her own cassette tape recorder. At age 11 Ava was writing music notation and submitting her compositions for voice, clarinet (her first school-taught instrument) and guitar to youth talent shows. In High School, Ava would record her keyboard parts, alto saxophone, drum machine, guitar and vocals into her make-shift ping-pong recording system, consisting of a boom box, 4 track cassette recorder and radio shack microphone.
A unique lady of many talents, Ms. Lemert is not only a prolific songwriter, she is a very soulful vocalist, producer and multi-instrumentalist. However, Ava, when asked about her love for performing on her two saxophones states When I bring out my tenor sax, I hear 'wow, do you play that thing?' all the time, because I'm just over 5 feet tall and I look like Lisa Simpson! What also comes across about Ava is that she has a personality that draws people in and makes the listener feel as if she is singing and or playing just for them, personally. She is a warm and friendly as well.
Ava has a busy graphic design business as well, furnishing her own visual branding in addition to being a volunteer librarian, occasionally performing for elementary kids as well as at several local charity events and assisted living communities in Sacramento California, where she is based.
