Ava Lemert

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 versatile vocalist, producer and multi- instrumentalist. However, Ava, when asked about her love for performing live shows 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 warm, vivacious personality that draws people in and makes the listener feel as if she is singing and or playing just for them, personally.

Ava's music has garnered 6 GRAMMY Award entries so far and she has released 9 albums/EPs and over 30 singles since entering the music industry as an independent, solo artist.

Soulful, jazzy, saxy, funky, fresh blend of powerful vocal and saxophones by Ms. Lemert. Seductive, addictive real instruments, music made the way it used to be but with a contemporary soul and vibe. Some fast funk, some smooth sexy, for sax lovers!

There is something on here for everyone who visits these pages, and if you check out the sound samples on CD Baby then I think you'll agree that this is a worthwhile purchase to kick off your soulful squandering in 2010! B. Towler, SoulChoonz.com

Such energy, zest, drive, and skill on the sax make this young lady one to watch. The album simply drips with enthusiasm, clearly from her soul, and it’s plain to see (or hear) that she wants you to know she was having a party in the studio throughout the entire time that she was laying down the tracks for this collection of really well-produced R&B-laced smooth nuggets
