Her mother bought her a piano at the age of 3. She recollects banging on the keys until about age 7 when she began to fine-tune her skills.
This was also the age that Ava learned to put words to her melodies to tell a story. Ava wrote her first song Bug-A-Bug, and has progressed ever since developing more intricate and complex lyrics. Growing up in a household where secular music was forbidden, she became heavily influenced by gospel artists like Yolanda Adams and Andrae Crouch. Now, much more seasoned and exposed the Ava compares her sounds to those of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott. In a mix of neo-soul, rock, classical..."Im just really different",she calmly says.
