Laid-back R&B feels and emotionally-driven honest lyrics are what define Boston-based singer/songwriter, Ava Sophia. Having performed at numerous venues in the Boston-metropolitan area, having toured in New York City, Los Angeles, and Valencia Spain, and featured by MTV’s TRL, Ava is striving to inspire through her music. Ava is gifted with a true musical spirit; she started piano lessons at age 9, songwriting in her early teenage years, and has been singing for as long as she can remember. She credits neo-soul powerhouses India. Arie, Jill Scott, and Alicia Keys as well as master singer-songwriters Sara Barellies and Tracy Chapman as her most prominent musical influences, all of which are reflected in her distinctive blend of soulful grooves and acoustic-pop. Her dedication to authenticity and empowering the voices of marginalized communities through her lyrics make her the unique artist she is today. Ava is a graduate of the world-renowned Berklee College of Music and she is continuing to share her music locally in and around Boston. She is currently working on a short EP entitled "To See and Hear Herself" due for release in April 2019. Her true passion and ambition are captured when she describes music to be “the only way I know how to make the world a better place”.
