Folk influences meet teenage angst in Massachusetts-based multi-instrumental singer songwriter Ava Simone. Influences of jazz, soul, folk, pop, and Americana have lead to a sound highlighted by complex lyrical content delivered by comprehensive melodies and sympathetic vocal harmony parts, and arrangements based in piano, guitar, and ukulele.
She has performed throughout the region, both individually and as part of ensembles, including being a featured songwriter at the Western Mass Songwriter's Collaborative and invited to sing at the Springfield Jazz and Roots Festival with the renowned group Sweet Honey in the Rock.
