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 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 was just accepted as a full Voting Member into the The
National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, so her plans are
budding to enter the 59th GRAMMY Awards next Spring, 2016.
Ava has a busy graphic design business as well, furnishing her own
visual branding in addition to being a volunteer librarian,
History and Arts Commissioner for her city, Ava has also performed
for local elementary schools, as well as given of her music,
performance and personna to several local charities, including the
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Northern California. She also
enjoys frequently performing jazz standards at local assisted
living and memory care homes near her home.
