Music Review: Ava Aston’s “Gone”


Since becoming actively involved in social media sites like Facebook two years ago, I’ve come across a plethora of undiscovered, artistic talent. And in the realm of modern music, songbird and lyricist Ava Aston – with a voice that is simultaneously sweet, powerful and provocative – stands alone.

Her debut CD entitled Gone showcases the impressive range not just of her vocals, but also her musical style and creativity. Sometimes edgy and defiant, as in the electrifying title track and in the high-energy single What Do I Gotta Say; other times tender and poignant as in the heart-tugging ballad, I Carry You With Me — for which she was awarded the Grand Prize in the SAW Mid-Atlantic International Song Contest – Ava’s unforgettable performances speak to the human experience and leave you wanting to hear more.

For those with the heart of a patriot, her most recent effort, We The People, an inspiring anthem to the indomitable American spirit, will reaffirm your faith in the power and determination of everyday Americans to return their country to its constitutional roots.

In a day and age where pop stars are manufactured creations of a pop culture gone crazy, it’s nice to know there are truly talented, wholesome and upstanding artists producing quality work. I have no doubt Ava’s star is on the rise and it’s only a matter of time before she’s signed by a smart record label. Until then, why not support a singer who is not only fabulously gifted, glamorous and beautiful, but also wholesome and patriotic? Both personally and professionally Ava proves it’s possible to sound great, look hot and maintain one’s integrity – in short, she’s a breath of fresh air on the music and entertainment scene.

Purchase her CD Gone today.  If you appreciate powerful vocals and unique, eclectic musical arrangements, you’ll be happy you did. And if you’re on Facebook, join her fan page here.

American Heart

I will return to regular book blogging shortly, along with a recap of my time in Franklin, Tennessee last weekend, where I watched my twin niece and nephew, Dom and Emmy, graduate from high school. Both are incredible young adults who have made my family very proud. Dom’s valedictorian speech was worthy of a college commencement, and I am so glad I made the effort to drive 800 miles each way to be there. More to come with photos and video of my nephew’s speech soon.

But since it’s Friday and I happened to come across this amazingly beautiful song and accompanying video by Jon David, a Hollywood writer and producer who recently “outed” himself as a conservative on Fox News, I just had to post it here. My favorite line: “I’m in love with her and I won’t apologize”. Damn right!

Enjoy, and God bless America!
