Over the last few years Ava has shared the stage and or collaborated with Blood Orange / Devonte Hynes, Carly Rae Jepsen, Solange , Melissa Etheridge , The Chainsmokers, Jack Antonoff / Bleachers , Lupe Fiasco, Chrisette Michele and others. The reason for her success with such a diverse range of collaborators is made apparent on this album & comes across as a fresh style that is difficult to put into any specific genre.
Her summer 2016 single and video ‘Eagle Eye’ received rave reviews from AfroPunk and was named Vimeo ‘Staff Pick’. Shortly after the release, her vocals on Blood Orange’s third album Freetown Sound also received positive reviews and mentions in Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Fader, Crack Magazine and others. Ava also sings on Blood Orange’s 2018 release “Negro Swan” on the track “Saint”.
