    Working on a Groovy Thing
With a versatile voice and a sultry tenor saxophone, Ava Lemert's signature sound has earned her the moniker of "the Singing Saxstress.™"
Born in Covina, California, Ava Lemert began singing her made-up songs into her sister’s tape recorder before she started Kindergarten. Her first instrument was a butter tub and wooden spoons, but would start out on clarinet in elementary school. Her Father bartered work as a motorcycle instructor for Yamaha Motorcycles in order to buy Ava a new YAS-23 alto saxophone for Jazz Band. Eventually, Ava was her High School marching band'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 toddler, she re-learned how to read music and play saxophone again in a community marching 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. In 2017, Ava's work as a female recording artist, producer, songwriter, and engineer, of well over 100 songs, 3 EPs and 5 full albums, paid off with acceptance into the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences as well as her first 3 ballot appearances in the 59th GRAMMY Awards.
Red Soul Shoes Ava Lemert's newest single (August 22, 2018), has just been submitted for consideration in the 61st GRAMMY Awards
