Introducing: Ava Leigh

Ava Leigh releases her debut single Mad About The Boy on July 7th.

From the press release:


The Ava Story, which is only just beginning, is already a triumph of an old Jamaican proverb – Who feels it, knows it. Though she’s a devotee of a music made before she was born and a world away, mid-1970s Golden Age reggae, Ava’s own breezy personality makes a much-loved sound fresh, and very much her own.

Ava's vocal nuance and shimmering harmony show she appreciates all she’s learned from old school greats like Marcia Griffiths and Dennis Brown.

When Ava was 14 she spent many of her Sundays rehearsing and recording at the IG night club studios which were co-owned by her long time manager Raymond Stevenson. Whilst there she used to sneak into the Aba Shanti club nights upstairs and soaked up the thunderous reggae and dub vibes.

With an innate sense of her own direction, Ava will be providing us with pleasure for years – partly because, as she says, “I write lyrics about me and my friends’ own personal experiences and I just love songs that everyone can relate to, and that will always remind them of the moment they first heard it. I want to make memories.”

Mad About The Boy is the first single taken from the forthcoming album Rollin’ and is released on 7th July on Virgin Records.
