Read on to meet Ava Breeze!
Tell us about your first single “Girls Of Summer”. What was the inspiration behind it?
I wrote “Girls of Summer” during COVID when I was not sure if I would ever get to make more fun summer memories with my friends. I wrote it in a way that is similar to the memories so that it is a journey of all of the things we would do together.
What songwriters and producers did you work with on it?
I write all of my own music, however, I had two absolutely incredible musicians/producers help me on this project. An old friend Thomas Dodd helped create this backing track, and my producer Joshua Marsh created a second backing track for the song.
Who are your musical inspirations?
I am constantly inspired by young artists who have made it in this industry, as well as big icons who started off where I am right now. I am extremely inspired by Christina Aguilera and Ariana Grande for their true vocal mastery and quality.
How did you get started making music?
I have always had a passion for music since I learned it was a thing. I started singing when I was young and once COVID started I realized that I have a lot of stories that I can tell through my music, so I started writing. Weeks later I wrote many songs and decided that this is something that I love to do because it combines so many of my passions together to create something truly beautiful.
You’re also a model, influencer, and actress. How do you stay organized with all of your projects and schedule?
I stay organized by compartmentalizing my life. While I’m at school, that is the only thing I am focused on. When I get home from school I have a schedule where I make some content, then go to any events in my calendar and balance out auditions through this process. It takes a lot of willpower to get through long and draining days, but it is so worth it because I am excited to see where my journey takes me.
You have a new Amazon series coming up. What can you tell us about it and your character?
I play a main character named Judith in the upcoming series on Amazon Prime called “Irreverend”. My character has a very type-A personality and is very passionate about what she believes in. The series is a comedy centered around a small, quirky town where everything is centered around a church. A new guy comes in wanting to fix the town’s weird personalities so he pretends to be a pastor. I can’t give too much away about the show but I really enjoyed filming it and I am really excited for it to come out.
Tell us about Ava’s Advocacy Army and why you started it.
Ava’s Advocacy army is a group I started in which I educate and advocate for special needs children. I started it because I was being bullied for having a special needs sister. I realized that this wasn’t just kids being mean, it was a lack of education on how to play with special needs children and why she is the way she is. I think it is extremely important to talk about issues like bullying and educate people on matters like this where acceptance is so important.
What would you like to say to all of your fans and future fans out there?
I would like to say thank you so much for getting me to where I am and I hope everyone out there is doing okay. Your dreams are just around the corner if you stick with them. And don’t ever be afraid to be yourself.
