5 Quick Questions
Can you tell me 3 things about yourself that people might not already know?
I started my music career very late.
I have a degree in Psychology and wanted to be a psychotherapist.
My father was a refugee.
What has been the best gig you have done to date and why?
Best gig I ever did was in New York City, Roseland Ballroom. My band "Boss & Swan" was on tour with the legendary DJ ATB. It was our last tour date, which also meant saying goodbye to the amazing artists and crew, it was bitter-sweet. The crowd was pumped, it was packed, everyone just had a blast.
What do you like best about being a musician and why?
I like it for two reasons. Firstly, when you get into a room and write with different artists, producers, writers there is no greater feeling that everyone came together and made art together. And the second would be the cathartic nature of writing. Getting things off your chest, thoughts you have, words and melodies falling from thin air. It's really an unbelievable feeling.
If you could say one thing to your fans what would it be and why?
Having someone listen to your music is one of the greatest gifts. Whether they're commenting on it, emailing you, make fan-videos, coming to your shows, of even a friend who just sits and listens to a song demo - it's an incredible gift. We write, we pour our hearts out, we have something to say. Reciprocation is extremely powerful, and it's really the reason why I'm making music and also why I wanted to get a streamable version of "Go" out there. So thank you to anyone who listens to me, or any other artist out there. It keeps us going.
How would you answer the question Who is Ava Kay and what are the differences between you as a music artist and you away from music ?
I believe every artist truly has something unique to share with the world. I do like to write about life lessons, things I've come to realize, often lyrics and messaging is really to myself. I hope that people find comfort or hope when they listen to my songs.
