AVA LILY


8;30pm AVA LILY

Ava has had a wild ride.

Whisked from writing songs at home in her Bristol bedroom, after being spotted on YouTube and picked up by R&B impresario NAUGHTY BOY. A signing to Virgin EMI and her debut single ‘Painkiller’ soon followed. The track garnered effusive reviews, praising her intoxicating, soulful vocals and intimate lyrical style.

A year of relentless touring followed, and a televised appearance at Wembley Arena as part of 2017’s X Factor. Her talents have led to to collaborate with the likes of PROFESSOR GREEN (on ‘Pardon me’) and songwriting credits with big names like ZAYN MALIK (on ‘Common’) — evidence that her skills as a wordsmith are just as finely honed as her live performance is.

Now setting out in a new direction, 2019 sees Ava playing live more than ever before, as she prepares to release her debut EP.”

Amy  is a singer-songwriter based in London. Amy grew up in a large musical family in a small town on the outskirts of London listening to punk rock and writing music with her brothers. Amy’s mother is a writer who loves country music and her father a keen electric guitarist.

Amy’s sound has been described as americana, based on her country-style vocals but the strong electric guitar emphasis gives her a unique edge. Her strong attraction towards electric guitar was inspired by listening to blues and rock growing up and her songwriting influenced by americana singer-songwriters and UK rock bands.
