Prolific songwriter, singer, producer, tenor saxophonist, Ava Lemert was born in Covina, California, a suburb in Los Angeles,
County. Before she started preschool, Ava was wacking on toy drums, making up songs and singing them onto her sister's
cassette tapes. Eventually, Ava was her High School's first underclassman —as well as the first female— Drum Major. After
graduating from the University of Southern California, Ava struck out into the workforce.
Music wasn't a part of her busy life until 2005 when as a mother of a 3 year old son, she re-learned how to read sheet music
so she could play her dusty saxophone again in a community band
