Ava Lemert was born in Covina, California. Ava was making up songs and singing them onto her sister’s cassette tapes before she started Kindergarten. Eventually, Ava was her High School’s first underclassman, as well as the first female Drum Major.
After attending 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.
From there, she got the fever to perform and write again, and now, Ava is breaking new ground for herself in music, reaching beyond what her early successes could have possibly predicted. Now, a member of the Recording Academy, having 4 releases considered for the GRAMMY Awards® Ava is also a proud recipient of the 2019 Executive Award from the Akademia Music Awards, their highest honor.
Whether it’s delivered by her potent vocal style or her passionate tenor saxophone, there’s a combination of voices that is unique, earning Ava the moniker, “the Singing Saxstress.” The music she creates is powerful at times, vulnerable at others, a variety of instrumental and vocal features.
Ava is a busy performer in her home state of California, and her music can be heard worldwide on several broadcast networks including iHeartMedia and on Spotify.
